Again I had a chance to participate in making illustrations for the new issue of the Popshot Magazine. This time I got to illustrate a wonderful and amazing story (‘Here, there & everywhere’ by Drew Tapley) about a man left alone on a deserted island.
I decided to continue a tradition started in previous issue and to pursue with a subject based on inner space of the image. And again, this issue is full of awesome authors – illustrators as well as writers. Thanks Popshot Magazine, as usual it was a great experience!

I had a great pleasure working on this illustration for Popshot Magazine, Issue 14. I was asked to illustrate a beautiful poem, entitled ‘When They Ask About My Face’ by Nancy Carol Moody. The poem talks about one’s face which can often look far more fierce than they intend to. It attempts to liken their face to various aspects of nature which could be deemed both harsh and interesting/beautiful at the same time.

The new issue is available to buy as a single issue or through a Popshot subscription. Find out more at www.popshotpopshot.com

Here’s the illustration made for Popshot Magazine, an illustrated literary magazine that publishes short stories, flash fiction, and poetry from the literary new blood.

This was featured in the Wild issue, their landmark tenth issue, which explores the wildness of nature, the wildness of human nature, and everything beyond and in-between.
The poem was written by Sean Chard and the cover was illustrated by the talented Sandra Dieckmann.
