I've found one of my images!


posted on 8th of july, 2009

Here it is: it illustrates the article "The importance of play for adults"
You know, when I was 5 years old and drew this picture I couldn't imagine that it will ever illustrate something. Like an article :) lol
Besides, having read it I thought seriously about the importance of playing. Finally someone think like I do)

Congratulations!!! Most of my hand-drawn illustrations that I have uploaded have been from when I was a child. This blog article gives me reason to hope that perhaps they will be used eventually, also!

Magic of gradients


posted on 19th of july, 2009

I love sketches. And surprises :)
Adding some colors with sometimes unexpected result is what I want to share with you.

Are you a vegetarian?


posted on 24th of july, 2009

I heard being a vegetarian suits human nature more than eating meat, though I'm not sure about it.
I just wonder how many vegetarians are around. Is it really so popular?
PS: I'm just a curious meat-eater :)
