One of the milestones of the career of an illustrator is to find an agent. As lots of illustrators know, it's so hard to find one! Of course you can trade without an agent as well and some illustrators manage it very well. But I find it quite helpful to have someone to look at my contracts, negotiate better fees and also find publishing work through their network.

One of my followers on Instagram happens to be Aida, artist hunter for Camaloon.com. She asked me to send them some of my illustrations to make vinyl wall stickers. And I did! I always wondered how my artwork would look on walls. And apparently it looks wonderful.

I just came back from New-York where I went to work with a group of writers on the preschool TV show I'm writing for in the moment. Luckily I had some free time as well and saw many inspiring things around. Including pretty to-do/dreams/shopping lists in the Paper Source which is one of the best independent stationery shops in the city. I decided to do some myself: cat-list and bear-list! You can download them for free here! And the b/w version is available here.

Very often I hear people saying: "It looks like it's so easy and quick for you to draw your characters. And i can spend hours and still not be able to finish my drawing!" Even if my creations do look simple, it actually doesn't mean i do them so quickly. It's quite common when you feel discouraged, because it takes so much longer then you imagined to draw something. But wait, i will show you something. Let's have a look at that hedgehog!

Our countryhouse was full of big spiders with long long legs. They frightened me a lot, these silent visitors from the basement. Once i was sitting in the living room, reading the last chapter of Anna Karenina for the school, when i felt somebody is watching me. I looked around and didn't see anyone, but as soon as i opened the book again, i felt somebody tap me on the shoulder.
