Merry Christmas Everybody!

Well, well, well :)
Happy times!
We've been working on a brand new cartoon show "George of The Jungle". So I'm posting these Christmas cards which based on some studio's characters (George of The Jungle crew).
Kevin of The Jungle -- he is the Producer of the show. WooooHooooo!

Lindsay Tree of The Jungle -- yes, she is tall and nice. So why don't we let her wear on this Christmass Tree outfit? Welcome Lindsay :)

Dana of The Jungle -- he is one of supervisers. Look brutal, but.. really cool guy.

There you go :)

Happy Birthday, Sasha!

I've got friends over there in Russia. And, yes, sometimes I feel the miss of them. I hope they do the same :) Anyways...
There's one of them who is a GREAT graphic designer and really cool guy, and this is his Birthday today! I want to wish him all the best and... Hm.. He is in Siberia actually. What can I do for him being on opposite side of the Earth. Hey, Being Boris Artist, I can draw. Yeah! Fortunatelly, we have the Internet, Blogger etc.. So all we are still can feel kind of heart connection every little moment. There you go.

Sasha! Happy Birthday to you! :)
Саша! С днем Рождения тебя! :)

Well, this is not a new one...

So long! Ok guys, I'd just like to post it here if you haven't seen this Russian fairy tales book cover before. I made it many years ago and this is one of my favorite.
Actually, I had done another one cover for this book, at first, but the publisher told me something like: "'s Ok, looks good, BUT could you Boris, please, draw something else for us? Maybe better. Just a little better". I was feeling really bad then and I'd been thinking what can I draw "better". Eh?!
A day later, suddenly, I woke up at about 4:00AM with an idea booming in my mind. I made a rough sketch and fell asleep in peace and happiness.
I woke up a few hours later and started drawing immediately. Working non stop within about 12 hours with my pencil, brush and pen; water colors and black ink -- I had this book cover been done, it's face and back sides. Frankly to say, compare to the first version, this second one is much better. Thank you, dear Publisher! :) By the way, he was happy with this cover.
