3 days in Paris


One feels inclined to say that the intention that man should be “happy” is not included in the plan of “Creation.”

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.

During my visit in Prague, in between beers, bridges and beautiful doll buildings, my friend and me we visited AMoYa to see some works of young czech artists.

Prague Toy Museum


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:

back from Bruxelles

Came back from Bruxelles where I’ve visited my friend Karin who lives there. Some photos:

I keep asking myself: why, why am I hate so much being back from abroad? I liked my life pretty much before I left. So why all I see for the few first hours is one big uncontrolled mess? The only comforting point is that I already know from the «previous chapters»: the time will pass by, and I’ll like everything back. Even though the mess will stay.

pictoplasma 2009

recently I came back from Berlin, I went there with a colleague-designer Ian to a Pictoplasma conference «Prepare for Pictopia», and also to meet my friend Karin. The even was very interesting and good organized, but unfortunately I’ve discovered that many of great illustrators and artists are not very good speakers, some are not even able to make 5 minutes presentation without their public falling asleep.

Visit to Moscow


Recently my friend Karin (who lives in Berlin) and I met in Moscow. Last time I’ve been to Moscow I was twelve, and could only remember a very tasty ice-cream I ate on Exhibition Grounds, and that my cousin Sasha, whose room I occupied during that visit, had a very cool kind of calculator, which could generate mathematical exercises as a game. This time I had definitely more memories. This city is beautiful, sexy, intriguing, but also cruel, clinical and very cold in every respect.

Stamp for Karin

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.
