2011, pen and ink
illustration for “Tale” by N. Onchukov

.. the duck spread its wings, the lake flew and set down on the dry forest..

the whole story in Russian:


Бывал да живал, на босу ногу топор надевал, трои лыжи за пояс затыкал; пошел возле лыка гору драть. Увидел: озеро на утке сидит; высек я три палки, перву бросил — недобросил, втору бросил — перебросил, третью бросил — попал. Утка встрепенулась, а озеро полетело, да на сухой лес село, ну и сказки конец.

Николай Ончуков

In my works I would like to show an emotional perception of a glimpse of a life span, its mood and atmosphere. It can be an emotional splash or a total quietness and melancholy, when the wind has abated and all around has stood.
