Make me think beautiful unexpected thoughts

Marsketchbook

It seems the season of presents isn't over yet. To be sincere I prefer to never end it and keep giving presents through the whole year, especially when nobody's waiting for them. The one above is from Malota. She sent me a beautiful set of her sketchbook drawings and a bunch of pocket calendars. I can recognize myself in that girl with blue hood - it's quite cold here right now. And the book above is from Smil.The drawings of Tove Jansson are just lovely and, oh, those cut-outs make me feel like I'm five.

It's a surefire way to speed things up

Studio

Yesterday was the last day of our winter intensive illustration courses. We were running it together with Victor Melamed and Ivan Velichko.

Lectures and master-classes from Igor Gurovich, Protey Temen, Lena Plahtienko, Egor Larichev and Alena Smirnitskaya were combined with a lot of practice work and witty tasks. So much fun! For more images go here.

Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Nechepurenka

I've got this from Lena Nechepurenko. Just look at this dappled guy! He has an additional hand to cover his mouth which makes him weird and I love it. She's going to sell these brooches, so there's a chance to get one. Or two!

Some other presents of the new year:
