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.

You will find more illustartions I made at different times

"...I've got friends in low places..."

I've got a neighbour. He is a very nice guy, a truck driver in the Port of Vancouver. It's always my pleasure to draw a Happy-Birthday funny picture for another friend of mine.

Pose!.. Pose!.. Snap!

Well, there is another art-reflection. Actually, things are not going so crazy. It's just a jokingly fixed observation.

Naked Art is a must

The last summer I used to draw and send these sketches as Good Morning refreshments to our sleepy animators. Hey !

one more...

This one was a Friday Morning Gal

Walking down the street,

I do love be watching people and their different faces, natures etc.. That guy on the left side, I saw him near Burrard Skytrain Station. He just passed by me. It was an early morning, he was sullen a bit and had his fixed stare and overhanging brows. I made this drawing from memory. Then, I made this cartoonish character (below) based on him.

Another characters are: a granny from a bus station and an old gentleman from Melville Str.

Here,.. some characters from Skytrain, streets and the studio as well.

I was working on posing for this character. So you've got a fart-jet here. This happens when you get tired with your routine :)

Hi everybody :)

How about some doodles. There you go...

This page with girlish creatures, I was inspiried with my daughters. They are so nice and funny, so curious and energetic. I'd like to work more on these characters. An alien appeared on the page for some reasons. Oh, you know,.. aliens, they're everywhere.

I have my lil' son who inspires me every single day. So I do life drawings as well as some sketches from memory and imagination.

Ok, finally!

I'm gonna make my second attempt of blogging. The first one is failed because I've been super busy since April and had no chance to keep it updated. Now that, things are getting better and I have a little spare time, I'd rather be posting some of my sketches and some art-reflections. Well, there you go :)

Let's start with this one.

Fortunately, there're a lot of interesting and nice people around me.

Hey Alison! You look a bit serious here, but you're very nice anyway :)

Here is another cool dude :) He's shooting a pile of hand drawn FX-frames per sec, playing the guitar, wearing stylish shirts and driving a shabby cabriolet. So he definitely ROCKs!
This is Kat. I'm gonna show you a couple sketches about her. I'd say: "...gothic girls are all in black, serious as heart attack..." Ok, she is always in black and she's adorable. Hey Kat, you do like this word, don't ya? ;)

Well, who's next? Aha... Atilla!

I tell you guys, it seems you can meet a dog (even a few) in every studio.

People at the studio...

This pal is actually smaller than his pencil. Sometimes you can find him wearing a red spider man's hat. So he's kinda Spider Man... or Spider Sized Man, as his girlfriend says. But his name is Ragnar. And I can tell you, RAGNAR-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-Rocks! Yeah! :))

Walter,.. Is there any position of an Animator-BodyGuard available? Let him know :)
And Kat once again.
