Hand-drawn graphic's set 2019


  • Perseverance

    This art work is about the perseverance of an artist, creative personality. On my opinion, every artist is very important to have this character trait. As rule artists are seekers, emotional persons and overcome by inner experiences. In addition, the way of an artist is often complicated by pressure and misunderstanding on a part of society and relatives. Many artists give up this profession or do what time and other people dictate. Only strong people persist in bending their line, move their way to set goals and work day by day, constantly improving their skills. Despite any setbacks, difficulties, and internal conflicts with himself, the stubborn person continues to act. At some moment, persistent long-term work develops into a successful result.

  • Born to Crown

    The graphics is based on a well-known Russian phrase “Born to crawl cannot fly” that has already become idiomatic. We say so with some disdain about the people who are down to earth, not capable of any risky business, who are content with very little in life. I took the liberty of reinterpreting this expression with brushes and paint and looking at the question from different sides. Luckily, the principle does not always work and different scenarios are possible. There are examples of those who were born to fly, have everything they need and even more: the best wings, beautiful appearance, successful parents, but at the same time crawling all their lives without ever trying to fly. At the same time, there are those who seem to be completely deprived and have no chance to take off, but at the same time find the courage and strength not only to try, but also to soar high in the sky!

  • Game of Thrones
     
    The result of collaboration with the world famous magazine Entertainment Weekly.
    The illustration was published in a special issue dedicated to the release of the eighth season of the legendary TV series Game of Thrones. The task was to create a family portrait of Starks.
    I think, for Game of Thrones fans it is not necessary to explain which characters are depicted. You can easily guess who is who.

  • The Pursuit of Success

    I think most people at least once dreamed to become successful, to be the best in their fields. Not all pass from dream to real actions. Many people leave the race before reaching the finish line due to various circumstances, personal qualities and principles. Some people understand in process that they are chasing in wrong direction and start anew. In our time, speed and rules change every day. People continue to dream when they look at more successful ones. True, now the minority dreams and strives to become Chaikovsky or Michelangelo, to be an outstanding original Person. Now, it seems to me, many people want to become simply successful, if it is possible without efforts. Success is measured by popularity, recognizability, money and the number of views on YouTube. Now the age of chasing after your piece of glory, at least a couple of minutes.

  • True Leopard's Way

    Friends, do not be scared of the cat grin. It was painted not for this. The leopard only shows that he can stand up for himself and he is ready to fight back stupidity and ignorance that multiply rapidly in the information era. I do not want to offend anyone, but in my opinion, to some extent, these qualities are inherent in all or almost all cats. Of course in me as well. The problem is that the average level of their manifestation is quite high and it is gradually becoming the norm. Some even openly admit their ignorance without being ashamed. 
    Of course, first it is necessary to look closely at yourself, honestly estimate your level and work on it. At the same time, self-development process must be continuous, because the result does not stay forever. In addition, whenever it is necessary, one should show its teeth on the path of ignorance and stupidity. I am convinced that we should be tough with everything that embodies these qualities. Otherwise, all leopards will die since mediocrity breeds and fills the world rapidly like mold.

  • The Last Romantic

    This is not about an exact person, no. I think the last romantic is in each of us, just not in everyone he is awake and lives life to the full. In this case, by romance I mean some feelings, interests and hobbies that come from childhood or adolescence and make you sincerely smile and enjoy your life, warm your heart and help to move on. Even when it seems that there is nothing of the kind and your life is full of routine, if you think well, you will find or recall your outlet. 
    For me such a romance is primarily drawing. It supports me even when I start doubting about it.
