On Sunday night, I made a duck in the style of Alexandru Ciubotariu, a Romanian graffiti artist and comic book illustrator that I sort of became obsessed when I was traveling in Romania a few years back. Following my duck drawing, you can see some pictures of his work that I took while I was in Romania.
Ciubotariu does work in various styles, but what I really love are the street art characters featured in his book, Pisica Patrata. They’re cute and at the same time scary, and they all look like they’re from another world. I guess I love them in the same way I love the animation in the movie Tekkonkinkreet. It’s the stuff of dreams.
