More on subject of Russian illustrators

This Medium article by Roman Muradov will guide you through Russian illustrators you might never have heard about.

"Russianness is an acquired taste, like licorice or the voice of Michael Silverblatt. I used to take great pains to avoid it, but now my expatty bitterness is finally giving in to something more patient, a deep affection for the individual, in part divorced from the country, in part tied to it closer than ever. The ten artists listed below are all excellent, regardless of the degree of Russianness their work may exhibit (some of them are not Russian at all, “Russian-speaking” is perhaps more accurate). This is not an attempt at a comprehensive list, it’s just a few names off the top of my head, mostly friends & contemporaries whose work I believe deserves wider appreciation".
