Tell us a little bit about yourself


I knew how to use a pen before I knew how to speak. I destroyed a lot of wallpaper, books, and my dad’s drafting stuff as a kid. By this year, I’d spent exactly half of my life in the United States. I’m originally from Ukraine. I have a background in graphic design and I draw because it’s fun.


What is the inspiration behind your work?


Nature, science, neurology, microscope photos of minerals, human nature, pondering my own mortality and the meaning of life.


What do you think is the artist's role in society?


To make life richer and more interesting, and sometimes to make people stop and think, "What would my life be without Thom Yorke? Or Haruki Murakami? Moderat?"


What superpower would you want and why?


I want a bottomless bank account because money solves all of life’s problems. Ok, not really. Teleporting would be nice, too.


Favorite drink?


I like a good beer, or sometimes New Amsterdam with a big wedge of lemon.
