Dmitry Izotov

I’ve been happily following the work of Russian illustrator Dmitry Izotov via livejournal for years.

Izotov’s work can also be found on The Behance Network.

Ivan Ivanov-Vano

There’s something very magical and unique about Russian animation in general, and the work of Ivan Ivanov-Vano in particular. Inspired by classical opera, and utilizing two dimensional stop-motion animation, he created some incredibly stirring short films. He was also a big influence on (and mentor of) Yuri Norstein, another of my favorites.

I love the disturbingly brilliant work of Moscow based illustrator¬†Uno Moralez aka Stas Orlov aka Indi (I’m not actually certain which is his real name, if any of them).
