The first three pages from my new sketchbook. I’ll focus on animal studies this semester, both real and imaginary. My next story will have a mysterious creature for sure.

My illustrations from Ilustratour 2014 workshop “Illustrative Quintessence” with Vitali Konstantinov. The first three pieces illustrate a funny sentence created while playing “Exquisite corpse”. The next one is a scene from “Bluebeard” folktale. I also had a chance to illustrate six basic emotions, make an abstract portrait, intuitive comic and a nonfiction illustration.
I created these illustrations during Ilustratour workshop “Every Picture Tells a Story” with Susanne Berner. The goal was to create strong graphic images of objects that have special meaning to each participant. To achieve this, I mixed different media, such as ink, crayons, coloured paper and pastel.
Ghostliness is a challenging thing to portray, as was making vignettes for my “Winter Ghost” picturebook. You can see the progression, the top ones being the final illustrations, created with soft pastels on tracing paper. I’m going to take a break from this project now as I have some new stories to work on.
