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 racing 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.
