Peter and the Wolf

The girls and me love to listen in the car to Prokofiev’s «Peter and the Wolf». We found this great version, with some narration which explains how musical instruments are connected to the personages of the story. As this is one of my favorite subjects (children and scary animals) I googled it a bit and found this great blog with a collection of vintage covers of vinyl records, all for «Peter and the Wolf» only.

my two favorites:

the ink pad shop

I was recently in New York, and if you happen to be there, I’d like to recommend you a cool shop: The Ink Pad. It’s a little shop at Chelsea, full of wooden stamps and vintage stickers.

Prague Toy Museum

http://lenarevenko.com/blog/files/130.jpg

I’m back from Prague. A lot of beer, unhealthy food, lot of waking, talking with friends (Russians, Israeli and German meet in Prague, sounds like a beginning of a joke :), thoughts and inspiration. I won’t be original to say, that I was extrimely inspired by the collection of vintage toys at Prague Toy Museum. I don’t know what is it about these old tin and wooden creatures, funny and scary at the same time, that make me want to draw. Some subtle facial expressions, probably.
Here are some of hundreds of photos I made there:

Michelle, Shavuot 2008

Michelle was sure she was a princess, but it was only a Shavuot dress. All the kids in her kindergarten were dressed in white and had little baskets with fruits and cheeses.
Shavuot, jewish holiday of the first harvest.

Recently I got an old Chinese comic book from my friend, and was really inspired by it’s main character, Sun Wukong (the Monkey King):

He is a hero of Journey to the West, a classical epic novel, published in the 1590’s
