    Overview   Process  

    Measuring the gifts and determining three optimal sizes.

    Thinking up the patterns, drafting.

    This “mother-of-pearl inlay” hides the skull & crossbones and hammer & sickle among birds and butterflies.

    This sketch contains encoded word “хуй”—a cult Russian “four-letterer”—screaming to be set in imperial style.

    The berries and insects fashioned out of Russian coins in all denominations.

    Sketching the “trashed” theme.

    Drawing it out in vector.

    Dipping a hook and fishing bobber in the fish pond.

    Topping the crown off with a special vehicle siren.

    A processing computer’s glitch.

    Coloring in.

    The Russian Hieroglyph pattern has an excessive white space. Filling it in by placing a fruit compote and badminton shuttle.

    Art director: Need to embed the studio’s logo.

    Incorporating the logo into the motif.

    Illustrator: This’s probably too much, right?
