Snowman returns

01momday basicHere’s the Snowman again, and this time he’s going to celebrate the Mother’s Day. But who is snoman’s mother? That’s a little trouble.¬† But he will work this out, no doubt. New book in the end of April.


Flower Picture For Dogs


This was a little break in daily routine. There were two reasons to paint this watercolor: 1. I like to paint flowers, 2. I have joined a Facebook charity action. It’s about abandoned black Russian terriers. We have two, male and female, so we definitely won’t adopt next one – this could lead to a fight. They are wonderful animals, but they are BIG and not so very peaceful by nature. They need space and attention. But at least I can list a picture for them. So, these flowers can be bought here:

Shayla’s new story


A new book’s arrived to my drawing desk, one more Rainbow Pals story. Crazy and colorful, like all stories by Shayla. The Pals are going to celebrate¬† Halloween. Yes, a bit early for this, but I’m rather glad we have started now. Won’t be easy. Many characters, many actions, many locations. As a matter of fact these little guys are into new madness in new place on each page. This is only first spread and I already feel a bit tired.

Witchcraft for Beginners


This is my first free time drawing in 2018, because there was simply no free time before. I have once drawn a girl practising spells on her cat in ink. This was for Inktober, a year or two ago. The idea somehow stayed with me. This time I have tried gouache paints.

Snowman Paul Plays Chess


Snowman Paul and his young friends are getting relaxed after their last trip to the Winter Olympics. Me to! I have made no trip like this, I hate winter sports, but I was finishing this book in really Olympic style. This is last page, and the rest is here:

New Olympic book


I have finished painting a week ago, and it’s already published as an e-book! Brand new Snowman Paul story. Snowman is getting ready for Winter Olympics again. No doubt winter sports are of great interest to snowmen.



This is going to be Christmas present for a great fan of Moomins. My usual set: watercolor, gouache and color pencils.

The Queen’s Ice Puzzle


This is Andersen illustration for Nicky. Watercolor, black ink and white gouache.

Puss In Boots


This is a test: what can be done with ink and gouache together. Ink comes in two kinds: bottled and Kuretake markers.
