"Sery taught me how to walk the woods, how to roll my first cigarette. When Lukomorie closed its doors to travelers and trade, he stayed behind to watch the village borders. We met at a crossroads on Kupala night. That should have been my first sign of warning -- or the fact that someone has stapled his mouth shut."

A little nervous and a little excited to start unveiling this project now about half a year in the making. I'll be exploring a draft of a story set in a high fantasy world and drawing heavily from Slavic and Russian tales as influences using story beats, illustration, and character designs. I am also trying to find a way to combine more of my traditional work with digital painting, so a lot of these will be a little exploratory : )
