Choosing a cover for this pre-challenge was not easy for me. At first I wanted to choose cover from the month and year of my birth, but it seemed dull for me so I started to seek for something else. Then I looked at the cover of Nails magazine of June 1986 because it is my husband’s month and year of birth. He is my inspiration and I thought it would be great cover for me but I was unable to find something inspirational in it. After some time spent thinking I decided to start over and look through every single cover since first issue.
And here it is, I found it! So much about me – last month’s issue with the Lexi Martone’s beautiful work of St. Basil Cathedral on the cover. I decided to create my design because I’m Russian and May is the month when I came to United States so all of it is very symbolical for me.
I was several times at Red Square and every time I was amazed with the beauty of buildings on it. Never thought that I will ever be drawing this cathedral but this is a great opportunity for me to show you my skills by drawing one of the most famous historical monument of my country.
