The Person in the Case

The Person in the Case

I had a task to draw illustrations for the favorite book. I was inspired by book of Russian writer Chekhov “The person in the case” and choose it as an illustration subject. This is a story about Belikov – teacher of a Greece language in school. He is so paranoid and scared by everything in his life, that he even can’t marry a girl who he loves because he is afraid that something bad is going to happened from it.
My attempts to find an interesting character brought me to following illustrations.
