In 1998 I have found my first job in the company Animation Magic Inc. The¬†position¬†had a romantic name: “2D Artist.” We¬†were making¬†computer games for an American corporation Sierra and ‚Äč‚Äčracing simulators for another corporation Nascar. In Animation Magic Chinese artists from¬† Boston office have taught us¬†to use Photoshop, Illustrator¬†and Wacoom¬†tablet, and, inspired by¬†that magnificent discovery,¬†in 1999 I¬†made these pictures. Partly I drew them for the “Library of Illustrations,” partly for myself.
In 2000, in my home town, Gelendzhik, was opened my¬†first exhibition, “In Memory of Seagull”, at Central Exhibition Hall.
