It is my birthday today

posted on 1st of january, 2010

I was born in January 1st, 1985. You know, having birthday just after New Year party is not a best thing in the world. No guests and all that :) I used to meet every birthday in tears when I was a kid.
But... The best birthday is a quiet one, with a loving family, that's what i realized a couple of years ago. And I'm happy today :)

Very true... . . . the best B'day is a quite one.
(being born on the first day of the year is considered to be good)

Cockroach and his family

posted on 7th of january, 2010

I'm taking part is assignment (again!). One of my bestsellers was a little cartoonish cockroach, cute fellow with a straw hat, begging for mercy.
So, since the assignment is about remaking one's best images, I chose this one. In the second edition my cockroach has a big family - a cute wife and five babies :) And all they think of new home.
Please, vote for this image how your heart tells you :)

Nice drawings! Cockroaches creep me out because I used to live in an area that had a lot of them. Yuck! But you did a good job on the drawing!!

Thank you very much :) It's nice to know my image won't go unnoticed among lots (really lots this time) of great photos and illustrations on the assignment.

An important keyword

posted on 25th of january, 2010

I'm mostly an illustrator and have many pencil drawings in my portfolio. They have very different subjects: from fantasy dragons to common landscapes, but it's curious that often they (despite they variety) used to be found by the same keyword - sketch - and bought then. Just a peice of advice for fellow illustrators: if you have pencil drawings in your portfolio, don't forget to add the keyword "sketch" to all of them, this simple action will bring you many sales.

Forum for photographers and illustrators (in Russian)

posted on 29th of january, 2010

There are lots of Russian-speaking people there. It would be wonderful if they had a place to gather and to discuss photo- and art-related questions in their native language. So we started a forum yesterday:
There are 6 people there for that very moment, so everyone is welcome.
