Here’s a commission for Dustin Harbin, who asked for something Russian. I didn’t feel like drawing bears, booze and homophobia, so I did a thing inspired by Petersburg, the highly demented modernist novel by Andrei Bely that has passages like this:
"The factory hooter wasn’t hooting, the wind was absent; and speechless was the dog." (quick crap translation by yours truly)
Of all the Russian books I’ve read this one most thoroughly seems to capture the Russianness of Russia, its language, patterns and colors while moving the story in the most fantastically hysterical fashion. As far as I’ve heard it’s actually more accessible in English, though I can’t imagine how its wordplay and rhythm can be translated.
I also drew 10-15 other commissions (sending next week), but I can’t be bothered to scan them. Good night.
