I am bad with numbers, straight lines and extreme rides in amusement parks.
I haven’t been in Amazon and didn't do bungee jumping.
But I can sit in one place for hours, and I love being on the road for weeks.
I've travelled through Siberia on a train, meditated in India, had an Ayahuasca empowerment with the shaman, greeted sunrise on a hotel roof in Kathmandu and created lots of pictures for myself and others.
Travelling opened the world to me. Through drawing, I learned to understand the world and how everything is put together.
Since childhood, I had a very vivid imagination and my mind was dealing with reality through pictures.
I think Illustrations can be true reflections of the illustrator’s mind. An artist is able to take a piece of reality, pass it through the filters of his perception, mix with his experiences and conditions, then make it visible to others and share with the world.
I am in love with creating images and creatures, with music and yoga and in love with my beautiful wife Anastasia and our cool kid Tim.
I am working across the various fields of editorial, educational and book illustration as well as character design and animated stories. I find my inspiration in great people, great art and in patterns of nature.
Let's connect and stay connected.
We may have an extreme ride in Amazon forest one day.
