The place I spent my teenage years was far from being aesthetic paradise. Actually, it was (and stays) a real slams. Municipality has some plans to take it all down and build a regular middle-class neighborhood. But right now, just as 20 years ago, these houses are still here. They are so ugly, that has even some kind of old charm.
Back then, this dispiriting landscape around wasn’t bothering me. I was concentrated on my friends and our relationship, fantasy books (reading Hobbit and Lord of the Rings again and again), and drawing comics with little creatures, which my mum still keep in a box on top of her cupboard. Not the creatures, of course, the comics.
Now I like to believe I see the real things as they are. I have to see it, because now I am a responsible grown up. We all have to. But sometimes, especially when I am walking around with my kids I enjoy to look through my personal kaleidoscope. Then I can turn this:

Well, ok, it is not a real tattoo. I doubt I’ll ever have one. It is because I have a problem to commit to only one image :) But I would like to see myself with some tattoos I designed. And this is a first one:
I put a printable file here, in case someone wants to make it for real. And if you do it, send me a photo, please :)

I printed two umbrellas at Artscow, and they are made at surprisingly nice quality.

I’ve started a new collaboration with a costume designer from Moscow, Nadejda Russ. Nadejda designs all the costumes for amazing circus show «Legend» of brothers Zapashny. She doesn’t come from the «classic» fashion design, and I’m fascinated by her creative ideas. Now we work on an urban fashion project, where my part is to create fabrics based on my art.
Today I made the first print tries. I never before made fabrics, it is interesting and I learn a lot.
