Irina Troitskaya

April 2, 2007

Russian illustrator and journaler Irina Troitskaya says she was:

…born and raised in Izhevsk, Russia - city of dead ends, sad electronic music and Finno-Ugric cultural roots.

I had to look that last reference up in Wikipedia, and it refers to Russian people living near Finland. I think. However she got her sense of style is fine with us. Her quirky and sweet, yet dark, images remind me of fairy tales, the Brothers Grimm and the shapes of tree branches on a windy day. And also a walk through any big city.

She is an illustrator by day, artist by night, and kindly shares her illustrated journals with the world. There’s a lot to choose from and I promise to post more.
