Owls and crows

The brief was to create a series of illustrations for the book of Russian medieval literature. Illustrations should present the subject in a new and unexpected way, but keeping the right balance between old and new, historical and contemporary.

As a response to that series of Illustrations have been created, which are presented to your attention. Illustrations were done digitally, but trying imitate the woodcut techniques, associated with medieval book illustrations. Illustrations are not using the style of the middle ages illustrations, but are echoing and interpreting it in a much more contemporary way
