I would like to thank everyone for great reactions on Monkeys. Now I’m working on a new series of Black babushka dolls that’ll include black raven, wolf and bat. In the meanwhile I’ve painted this little Black Nosed Zombie, which is some kind of forerunner of the new series. As I’ve mentioned before, I really enjoy working with wood lately.

Snow Mole animation is finally online!
This is a short stop motion that I was working on with Miroslav Dajč. I was working on character & set design, while Miroslav Dajč was working on the motion & sound. It was a great challenge working on this animation. Compared to my previous work on animations this one was not only mentally, but physically challenging as well, and required long hours of filming & editing. For the set I’ve used: sugar, M&M’s, coconut and regular flour, paper, markers and color spray.
Overall, it was great experience and I’m more than happy with the result. I would also like to thank Mirko Žarković & Miloš Čubrilo for their help. I’m looking forward to working on project like this again.

I was working on some sketches that turned out pretty neat and I really liked them. One of them turned out to be my favorite, and I wanted to somehow embody that character so I made this 10cm high figurine out of polymer clay and painted it later using acrylic paint. Is it a dog? Maybe. Is it cartoonish? Definitely! His name is Blink.
I’m definitely looking forward to making more stuff like this, but on a larger scale.

Snow Mole is a new character I’ve made out of polymer clay for my new stop motion that will soon be online. As you can see, Snow Mole glows in dark, too.
For the set I’ve used: sugar, M&M’s, coconut and regular flour, paper, markers and color spray.
These are the screenshots from the animation.

Here are my monkeys! This is the series of five handmade babushka monkeys. I must say that lately I admire the texture of wood, and so I’ve painted five different monkey characters on wooden babushkas (old Russian wooden dolls). The monkeys each have a different spirit, mood and symbols.
Painting on wood is very traditional, and so are babushkas… This is just my style.

This is one of those pissed off characters from my artworks. He’s not the first, nor the last one, of course. Making toys like this is a really nice way to express my ideas in 3D. For me it’s simple and fun to create unique toys from my characters. Hopefully one day kids will play with this mad X toy… or break it.
