In high school and college I studied Russian, and lived in Russia as an exchange student multiple times. Those experiences have stayed with me and influenced me in many ways. I even sign my paintings with my name in Russian: XE3EP, pronounced “heh – zher” as there is no “th” sound in Russian. I love communist propaganda posters. After I finished this pencil sketch, I attempted to color it using my rudimentary digital art skills…. I’m pretty happy with the results. Instead of “Workers of the World, Unite!” it’s “Artists of the World, Unite” which we all should, I think! 🙂

Finally got my work photographed from november/december. More to come…
The words are in Russian, and from the top say:
nyet (no), ni-znai-yoo (I don’t know), da (yes)
