Sometimes I make games and toys for my girls. I like to give them some «tools with no rules» and to see what kind of games they create themselves. A few days ago we collected together little stones on the beach, and I painted on them faces, houses, fruits, flowers, etc. It took me two evenings. Today, while we were in a coffee shop I presented the girls a tin jar with these stones:
First, they spread them on the table, to observe all the pieces:
then distributed the stones into a different groups:

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:

I have to count once, how many sketchbooks do I already have, because people keep asking me. I answer «a lot». I guess, around 25-30. Every sketchbook is really different, some are old are from the art academy, some — from travel, from work, and they contain all the interesting things I can find and stick or draw. I carry my sketchbook everywhere with me and really feel it is kind of my «home», my private space, where I can hide while drawing. So, I invite you to see my inspiration, sketches and the way of thinking.
many-many sketchbook pages

I made this sketch for a stone stamp for my dear friend Karin, who came from Germany to meet me in China. Karin liked it. The artisan who curved, was a bit stressed when he saw that we want not a usual «Your name in English and Chinese, ready in 5 minutes!», but finally, did a great job.

I made a cover for my mobile phone with a face of one of my characters, printed on fabric. The red chicken was given to me as a birthday present, I like it a lot. I also like to take pictures of myself with stupid toys and serious face, it somehow reminds me my pictures…
