until now

until now by yelena bryksenkova
last fall i contributed these illustrations to accompany daniel kraines' essay "le canard" in the inaugural issue of until now, a magazine about coming of age created by alex citrin, who is working on an MFA in illustration practice at my alma mater, the maryland institute college of art in baltimore. i'm so impressed with the way this beautiful issue came together, and am happy to see quite a few familiar names among the 42 contributing writers and artists. you can now find copies at mcnally jackson in SoHo and atomic books in baltimore, but the list of stockists is sure to expand in the coming weeks as the magazine is officially released.

Hey Yelena, again and again I'm surprised, that such "simple" paintings can be so touching an heartwarming. Though "simple" doesn't mean that it is easy painted (I tried to draw like that - no way ;) but just without anything that distracts my attention from the story behind or the beautiful atmosphere. It's simply wonderful!
