RESPONSIBILITIES IN THE PROJECT
Visual conception and art-content quality.
I am an aesthete and perfectionist. I want our readers to get a lot of pleasure from the “illustration” that accompanies the text: photos, picts, schemes, and videos.
My “plan of the world mancipation” is modest: I hope so, a high-quality visual content will make parents happy and it will develop good kid’s preferences.
I can also add that I control the stories to be drawn in each fairy tale in the same style.
I am also responsible for the look of our brand and site navigation.
I listen to blues, jazz, etno. These styles from my point of view are “not superficial”, they have background and history. I like instrumental compositions as well. Literary preferences are fiction, classics. Not long ago I became keen on fiction and philosophy books.
I like to travel, “meditate” with a fishing rod (the excitement is as in casino but more useful), visit music festivals called “open-air”. There is some particular atmosphere of freedom there. My interesting experience is taking part in volunteer’s projects.When I have some free time I ski and skate, ride a bicycle. The main passion I have is drawing. Maybe the disposition toward drawing has played the main role when choosing a career.
From childhood I have dreamed to draw as much as my soul wishes, staying along on the river bank with an easel and a palette. And as I can’t let myself do it for financial reason I have become a designer. My disposition towards drawing is satisfied and at the same time I earn more than an artist.
WHOM DID YOU DREAM YOU WANTED TO BECOME WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD
As many boys I was fascinated by the sky. I was gluing elements of the planes’ models and desperately wanted to become a test-pilot.
Once I was flying with parents for holidays and the captain let me stay in the cockpit during the whole flight. Still I remember those feelings: calm concentrations of the crew and my inside rejoicing. The dream came true! I was as a pilot! I almost steered the plane!
I was sure at that moment that it was not the last flight but it happened that I was fond of reading a lot and it influenced the sharpness of my eyesight. And what kind of a pilot could I be with bad eyesight? I had to concentrate on the second equivalent liking – drawing.
FAVOURITE CHILDREN’S TALES/STORIES
I liked books about traveling and adventures. I was keen on science fiction too (Jules Verne, Rafael Sabatini, Jack London, and Kurt Vonnegut).
WHAT WAS YOUR FONDEST MEMORY OF CHILDHOOD
I excitedly read magazines “Modelist-constructor”, “The youth engineering” and I was fond of elemented engineering models. Evidently it influenced the fact that after school I chose the faculty of industrial design, where I could combine two favorite things: engineering and drawing.
I was also keen on linocut (for you, respectful visitor, not to open the Wikipedia, I will tell that it is engraving on the linoleum). I was fond of modeling and fencing as well.
