that's for one inflight magazine, an article was about sports and unhonest ways of getting olympic medals.

another experiment with multichannel coloring technique in photoshop. it makes it easy to make new colors, mixing the 2 or 3 you have chosen for the premises. I have to tweak with multichannel more, because I've also explored that it's possible to change the lines' colors as well, although I couldn't use it here that much.

'm having a lot of pictures from our three wonderful days in Venice. This is a very inspiring place indeed! We got lucky with the weather, and all the channels' banks were available for sketching! This was really great, keeping in mind that the weather in Moscow was freezing when we were leaving... A small piece of summer in this long winter was amazing! And even more, I was lucky enough to bump into Stefano Vitale, both a possibly the only illustrator in the area and a brilliant person. A really, really wonderful experience!

frosty weather, evening

so, this is not Moscow for now, I made this sketch when we sat in a cafe in Munich waiting for a train that would take us to the airport to go back home (put colors in photoshop later). Sorry, this is a little bit Kurt Vonnegut way of telling the stories, but that's how our trip to Italy ended. It was a silent and freezing night. We just came on a train from Rome where we were sketchcrawling all the previous day, and now it was time to relax and make a good drawing of the moment.
I'll insert other pictures from our travel here too, I just need time to fix them a bit, because they got bit damaged through all this roads.

sketchcrawl in Roma

well, yeah, I did it! Haven't met anyone of other sketchcrawlers though. I happened to be in Roma just in time for the SketchCrawl #20 and visited some of the locations listed on the map. The sketchcrawl schedule was until 4pm, but as soon as the day wasn't over by that time I made some drawings after that, too.
