hello arctic circle

on my mind this week: kolymá, the port city magadan, and the cold and lonesome vastness of the russian far east. although i am not entirely sure what he has to do with it, the rooster in a sweater says "goodbye."

figure drawing from my sketchbook, text is a passage from m. bulgakov's master and maragarita. i am in sunny (wind, green grass, dandelions) ohio, on my newly grandfather-fixed bicycle, with my summer music (listen!). it feels like an optimistic soviet film from the 1960s, the kind that can make anyone want to live in the ussr.
