A new take on an old Russian cartoon I love - "Ezhik v tumane", or "Hedgehog in the Fog" (wow it rhymes in English!)
In the original story, Ezhik or Hedgehog, gets lost in the fog in the forest and the whole time tries to find his way home. My story has a new twist, Hedgehog is now in a Venetian gondola trying to find his way to shore.
First is my illustration, second is a simple animation based on the illustration, and third is my inspiration - the original cartoon. I think it's a masterpiece and I certainly don't come close...

The Pomegranate is a fruit of symbolic meaning in many different cultures. Some hold that it was the pomegranate, not the apple, which was the fruit of temptation leading to the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden.
I love everything about the poma-granate, its tart and deep ruby juice, breaking it and eating the seeds one by one, or all at once. It's chock-full of vitamins and really delicious!
