you get accustomed and the change hits, and it hurts. you  learn to live your new life and you can't even recall what it was like before. Life's a wheel and comes full circle.

Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There’s magic in that. It’s in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.

Oksana Badrak

Oksana Badrak is an extremely talented illustrator and concept artist from Moscow, Russia. She creates dreamy pop/kitsch imagery using mixed-media – this approach consists of a rich combination of digital technology with meticulously hand painted elements. The resulting surreal imagery presents a fantastical visual experience made from various amalgamations of graphic fiction and tightly rendered reality. Her work’s inspired from everything from Asian supermarkets to the Southern California desert. This creates a very distinctive style; it fuses an enticing and balanced landscape of pop-culture icons with organic world depictions.
