I would like to thank Moscow graphic artist Natalia Vasilyeva (have a look at her illustration blog) who made this very nice drawing of me. Natalia is well known on Instagram under the nick @navasy. Read the great write-up with Natalia’s illustrations is posted on AnnaRuska or simply visit Natalia’s own blog. I love Natalia’s style, she paints in Faber Castell Pastel and Watercolor pencils. Each painting is done on white paper and can take up to 12 hours. Very impressive!
Here is a sampler of Natalia Vasilyeva’s paintings:
