Anonymous said: Hi, I'm probably being an idiot but am looking at this on a smartphone and can't see if you sell prints. I have fallen in love with the 7 Deadly Sins cats and would love to get some for my home. Is this a thing?

No you are not! ^_^
Unfortunately, at the moment the deadly sins set is available for online collection only. However the plan is to add ‘buy prints’ option to NeonMob’s platform at some point in the future. Thanks!

Some time ago I was approached by Neonmob -  a collectible digital art platform where anyone can discover new art and grow personal collections of limited-edition content created by artists from around the world.

I created an art set for the platform, which was a great commission as I was given all the creative freedom I needed to have fun.

The idea of Deadly Sins has been floating inside my head for a while, but instead of creating something dark and gloomy I decided to add an epic ingredient to the concoction - cats. This helped me create some artwork that was both dark and humorous (my favourite type). Also we thought that changing the rules never hurt anybody, and added an extra piece illustrating the eight sin! Yes, I definitely made it up myself.

I am only publishing 50% of the collection, the full set can be collected here!
And here’s a little fun interview I did.

Thanks for watching ^_^

I took part in a lovely cover design brief organized by Computer Arts, which I personally consider one of the best graphic design mags here in UK.
The cover design brief was themed around “NEW TALENT” - the issue was dedicated mostly to recently graduated media students, fresh and talented crowd. 

I created and submitted two artworks to this contest, and neither of them won!
But CA team liked my contribution and were so nice about it they printed it full size on two freakin’ pages, and I must say that’s just awesome. More than happy with that.

Follow me on facebook and instagram, more stuff comin’ soon!

It was the 30th anniversary of Tetris a couple of weeks ago.
Below is a little illustrated tribute I created to celebrate the date!
Hope you like it.

Hi everyone!

I have been working on this project for a while - it had been good fun as I truly love drawing characters.

I had to create 30 character designs based on 15 personality types for a humorous test that tells you who you really are! You pass it and get a description of your inner self alongside an illustrated character portrait done by me. 

And here are some links - follow for arty updates!

If you ever wondered how I look like in real life - here’s a short ‘behind the scenes’ film showing the process of time lapse video making and origami drawing under pressure ^_^

ArtLoop from Tomila Akhmadieva on Vimeo.

Hi guys!

Hope you have a second to check out this arty little video made by myself and a talented aspiring photographer Tomila Akhmadieva, assisted by Kate Rubinovich.

You’ll see my hands “unmaking” the origami and “undrawing” its little portrait, which is a take on the “what came first” saying, only here we have origami and a piece of paper instead of classical chicken-egg situation. We called it ‘ARTLOOP’, as the idea is that the process can be looped an infinite number of times (in theory, of course).

May I remind you that this is pretty much a first video attempt for both of us - we still need time and practice to grow this weak little seed into a decent video production plant!

Thank you ^_^

Hi guys,Here’s a quick doodle to cheer you up on this glorious day, and also ask:What screen recording software would you recommend?Something that’s free (does that even exist?) and records the screen for more than 10 seconds (like numerous trials).Thinking of finally recording the process of digital painting after a number of requests, so any help would be appreciated (by sending me an ‘ask’).Thank you!^_^

My first attempt at some sort of stereoscopy. Its not 100% success, not at all.But there’s something about it that I like, thought I’d share with you.
