peregrinusexpectavi asked you: “Hello (and happy birthday)! I hope that’s not too weird coming from a total stranger, I just wanted to say thank you for making shch wonderful art! And since you’re taking requests I think we could all do with some Ivan and Fedor Basmanov c:”
(Also, there was an issue with re-blogging the previous request doodle post, so let’s see if posting them this way is better for those who may want to?)
cosmonautically asked: I've been browsing your art and it's positively ravishing! Have you ever drawn anything directly inspired by Death in Venice? I'd be curious to see how you'd interpret Tadzio or Aschenbach. Robin the Boy Wonder might also be interesting. (As a side note, I always get excited when I encounter people that have heard of Another Country! It's one of my favorites!)
My interpretation of Tadzio is pretty much exactly the same as Visconti’s, because his Death in Venice film is flawless.
w-one-of-us asked: Hello~ Requesting SS officers, perhaps, or French Kings, or Bolsheviks, or something Agatha Christie...?
oz-lion asked: If you're still doing requests: a Ragtime pianist, OR a Congolese Sape (since I am now obsessed). <3
These are getting progressively worse, I’m sorry. My ass is tired and hot. Also, this was really hard, because holy shit Congolese sapeurs are so fucking badass I can’t even. But I really liked the other suggestion, too, so
And finally, I AM IGNORING THE REST OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS. YOU AWFUL CHILD. AND I WILL SIT HERE AND JUDGE YOU.

I love pilots. So much. Here’s a Soviet WWII pilot, and I have drawn pilots of both wars here, here, here, here and here.
odilonredon asked: Request: Sexy NKVD agent, because hardly anyone tries that.
NKVD have some disturbingly sexy uniforms. This sketch is meh, but I tried!
How do gun??
duskandshiver said: Have you ever drawn Marlene Dietrich? (I assume you have… I guess I should ask, have you posted it?)
Oddly enough, no. So there we are. God, she’s hot.
enantodromia asked: Requests, hmm? (I was waiting for you to do another one of these. =D)
Now then... seeing as my fetish is 1950's Chinese women in qi pao dresses, lacquered heels, satin gloves, elaborate hair styles and decked in jewellery who smoke cigarettes... well, if you've seen movies like Lust Caution or Wong Kar Wai's work (In the mood for love, 2046) you'll see what I mean.
Otherwise, I'd love to see if oriental characters suit your style. :) Perhaps some voluptuous concubine, or a Rachel-Brice-style oriental dancer?
I love 2046! And I have actually been wanting to draw something inspired by vintage posters of Chinese beauties.

Why not both! And his name is probably Milo.
