Short Stories written by Alexandr Chayanov
Charcoal and digital illustrations by Vladimir Zimakov
As I started reading the short stories by a Russian author Alexandr Chayanov (1888 - 1937), the stories blew me away by their dark and whimsical narratives, the nature of the characters, the picturesque descriptions of early 20th century Moscow, its surroundings… The narratives are filled with mysticism and grotesque. Bellow are 6 of the illustrations for this project.
I will be adding more illustrations as I complete them. Please check back for updates.
