This is a series I've been working on in August. Visually it is influenced by the esthetic of illustrations for children. I will soon make a couple more for this group.

A lot of things happened this month, both good and bad. First of all I'm an illegal immigrant in my own country, partially due my own stupidity combined with the inefficient laws and corrupt government. Besides bribes, long lines and formal bullshit, which is intolerable I'm having a great time. On my way to St. Petersburg I've stopped by in Paris for a couple of days, went to see some places of historical importance here in Russia, and am going to the capital for a couple of days. As for art: I've been trying to make consistent and finished works as opposed to just sketching stuff. A couple of series are coming along, as well as a commissioned illustration that I didn't scan/photograph (didn't come out that great anyway). Here is a series of my and my friends' conceptual portraits in the current state of our lives.
