Among the many talented people I know is my friend Fyodor, who lives in New York with his equally lovely and talented husband, Lawrence. They are illustrators and performers, working on individual projects, as well as a comic book together, Baritarian Boy. Note: Some of the content posted on their Tumblr blogs/comic, while no less delightful, is occasionally NSFW.
Fan art is not Fyodor’s general niche, but he has done a few drawings that would be relevant to our readership’s interests. With his kind permission, I’m sharing some for you here. Let’s start with some Sherlock:
“Cumberbatch locked me in a high tower of his mind palace for a thousand years.”
You should totally check out Geekquality, babies. It’s a fantastic blog dedicated to exploring social and political issues of race, gender, sexuality, feminism and ability in geek and fandom cultures. It also has Betty White, puppies, and the infamous ass-boob pose. I mean, what more do you even need?
You and your husband are lovely beyond words! I truly cannot say enough about your stunning artwork, it's an absolute inspiration every time. But just indulge my curiosity, have you ever considered going in to costume design? From everything I have seen I think you would be very, very well suited for it.
Thank you so much! A few people have asked me before about costume design. It was very much up there for me, and something I still think about now and again. I always end up feeling like I lack severely in education for it though. I am not trained and my sewing skills are quite amateurish. I get by on them when I need to design and sew costumes for performances, but even so I mostly re-purpose costumes rather than create thing from scratch.
So, I guess the short version is that I think even if I have some talent for it, I don’t have the technical skill. However, I would really like to make paper dolls…
Hi! I'm following your tumblr and just wanna be polite, introduce myself and say: Hello! ;-) I love your work and what inspire you, your really talent. Congratulations! (just give me time and I'll clic ❤ in all your post!! xD). Best wishes and greetings from southern Spain! -sorry about my english, by the way...- Rocío.
Aw, thank you so much, lovely southern Spanish follower! <3
Hi there. I always loved your art work so I ended up joining Tumblr today. I dont have a clue how it works to be honest but at least I can leave comments on your work now. You and your husband are pretty damn awesome and I'm really looking forward to seeing more stuff from you.
Oh my, thank you so much! I’ve made a Tumblr convert!
Hello! I just wanted to say that your artwork is perfectly beautiful and it's always a pleasure to see it turn up on my Dashboard. And the strangest thing happened recently: I was reading "The Master and Margarita" (Mikhail Bulgakov) and I suddenly realized that I kept seeing scenes illustrated in your art style. It was odd at first...but then it seemed...rather fitting. Peculiar stories aside, I'll look forward to seeing more of your artwork in the future!
Thank you! Aw, I remember when I decided I was old enough to read Master and Margarita at 11. Clearly, I was a self-assured pompous snob from birth.
Hey babies, I just wanted to give a heads up that at the moment my day job is a nightmare and I am swamped with commissions. The former is shit, the latter is a good problem to have. But it means that at the moment, I cannot take on any more commissions. I have e-mailed all the peeps who have inquired about commissions yesterday, so you guys should be good to go. I’ll be working on your pictures over the next month. After that (in February), I’ll be taking care of my husband post-surgery. So I’ll most likely not open them back up till end of February.
TL;DR: Commissions are currently closed, and will be open again at the end of February. I will make a post when they are open again. Kisses!
