All about red

Redwrapping

Made a lot of wrapping with craft paper and bits of red. Red is everywhere and I know why. When you have an idea, the reality offers you some little signs and your job is to notice them. I am focused.

Advice to sink in slowly

Avicetosinkinslowly

This set of postcards from Advice to sink in slowly based on a series of A3 posters designed by graduates for the purpose of passing on advice and inspiration to first year students. It is a welcoming gift to first year students, when they enroll. I was lucky to contribute to its volume 2.

Spent a lot of time thinking about a piece of advice I wish someone had told me as I started on my course. It should be something that might not have felt relevant straight away, but which could have sunk in and helped me out later on. Finally I fixed on "Don't be afraid" and "Finish what you start". Looking at my students I chose the last one. I've seen so many potentially excellent, but unfinished works. Hope it'll help someone to carry on.

You can buy the collection of 24 postcards with advices here.

Inner space

Orange_spots

That felt mug coaster in the lower left corner made to celebrate the date of opening of Lonely Elk blog (in Russian). He built my site and blog and all the inner administration system, which no one can see, but believe me - it's very good.

Palm Sunday

Verbochki_comics

When I was at school our teacher of literature was obsessed with Alexandr Blok's poetry. She asked us to recite his poetry in front of her and all the classmates, which was quite awkward for me, because poetry is much more intimate than prose. I learned to repeat around a dozen of Blok's poems by heart though. And still remember some of them. To illustrate his Palm Sunday felt like some kind of lucky circumstance. Bearing in mind that Christmas comics I made some time ago, I could say I'm on my way to become an Orthodox comics artist.

We went to visit the exhibition of national costume the other day. And I found these hand printed clothes there. It interesting to know how they'll influence my work in the future. I'm sure they will.
