What a long and crazy week it has been. I think my brain is wearing thin, like a wonderfully worn old t-shirt that has gone through the wash too many times and is now being held together by a fragile web of cotton and grim determination not to disintegrate. I was looking for a break and to rest my weary cortex when I came across the marvellous work of Varya Kolesnikova. Her illustrations are enchanting, and like a children’s story they have a brutal innocence to them. At a glance they are endearing, inviting and sweet, but the closer you look and the deeper you go the more of the dark side you will see. Enjoy!
