My friend. We know each other for more than quarter of a century, share great memories, had so much fun with our exquisite circle of friends in Moscow, how many wonderful books came to me from his hands, how much delicious homemade liqueur was consumed on our intellectual parties (Lena and Mark were in science field). I used another vintage advertising pencil and ink in furry album, I got long time ago in Home Goods, it said Kim Robertson inside on the back cover in silver letters on the fabric sticker. Kim Robertson is London based designer.
Pogacsa is sort of Hungarian biscuits. I met Erno at work few years ago. Erno and Klara gave it to me as “feel better” gift on one cold and windy night. Taste is mind blowing. I think Klara adds caraway seeds and cheese to it. I love it. I drew it with another vintage advertising pencil and inked in Moleskine.
Mail man, who often brings me pencils from all over the globe. My yard. Drawn with 80-year-old pencil and inked.
Cute houses. It is not typical design for Brooklyn, I thought its looked a little German or like in Riga, Latvia. I used couple of inks and could not resist to add my beloved red touch, even in reality umbrella was black, washed out by rain to almost white. Alex was patiently posing.
Pizza Margherita. Here ink drawing of delicious pizza Margherita, made by local pizza place, here in the mountains. And Sheridan’s layered liqueur. I used couple of inks in Moleskine sketchbook.
Autumn in Brooklyn. Ink. On the top is my list, I didn’t plan to use the whole spread, but brunches looked so interesting, so I let it be.
Umbrella. Brooklyn street. Ink and white in Moleskine. This Moleskine paper seems much deeper than my previous one.
Meal. First page in my new Moleskine, Skizzenbuch. Paper seems more yellow than in previous, Red Moleskine, more antique look. I used ink here.
This is last page in my red Moleskine, already one part of a jacket. I wanted it to be about love. It started on April 13 with dead Nikita and ends with love and hope. Pig has a little hat, canvas top from a jar with preserved fruits. Ink and white in Moleskine.
