Victor Melamed . Russian Character Illustrator

December 3, 2011

Victor Melamed is a Russian illustator who also teaches in Moscow and contributes to the Russian Rolling Stone and New Yorker Magazines.

He regularly writes for an illustration site you can view through google translate here.

He seems to capture not only the faces of the stars he illustrates but their characters too.

I knew who most of these guys were before I even saw their names beneath.  How many did you spot ? And for any of you in the Manchester area today (that’s UK folks), I’m doing a Craft Fair at Pownall Green Primary School on Bramhall Lane South, Stockport, SK72EB. Between 11am and 2pm, please pop in and say hello.
