People very rarely ask me «what this work of yours means?». It’s a good thing, because I don’t know what the work of mine they liked means for them. Often I have no idea, what it means even for myself. I just like to follow the process of creation, without knowing in advance what turns will it take and where will it stop… It can start really from anything and to go anywhere. I’ll show you.
a long story with cool illustrations of one creative process

The last month I just keep drawing dogs and more dogs.
Maybe it has something to do with our recently adopted friend Tobik. Tobik is so black, that when he moves in the middle of the night, it seems like a darkness itself is moving. And since I have black sofas, every time somebody else sits on Tobik by mistake and then we jump on, scared by his insulted shriek.
I didn’t plan to adopt a dog, but he was crying in the middle of the night near our house and I couldn’t sleep. I found him a good people who wanted to take him, but my daughter Michelle sworn, that she will take a good care of him and clean after him. Interesting, that I believed that, even though I had a dog when I was a child and I also promised my mom I’d take care of him, so I knew how would it be for real.
So here we are, me and Tobik, him sleeping near me and in between his sleep ruining the house and my shoes in particular, and me, drawing more and more dogs…

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:

part of strange «button» graffiti, which fits really good into the textile neighbourhood where I found it. I was so excited by the texture, that have forgotten to take a picture of the whole thing.

My daughter Michelle is a perfect company for drawing in a cafe. First of all, she is a very patient model.

I just saw beautiful works of Ukrainian folk-primitivist artist, Maria Prymachenko. Maria lived all her life in a village not far from Chernobyl. Her art makes me think of African folk art, scary children stories, Russian Lubbock and drawings of Japanese artist Kazumasa Nagai. And in art this is what I love the most, the associations that start to run in your head and finally transform into inspiration.
