Illustration for a Russian fairytale where Vlad and Lev first confront the Great Bear and provoke him into charging the Tsar's palace.
I love immersing myself in the story and drawing the pictures that I see in my imagination. In this instance, I put myself in the place of the man meeting the great bear until I could almost hear the crunch of the snow and feel the freshness of the forest air. That is why I love illustration - it's a way of bringing my imagination to life and sharing it with others.
