Julia Valeyeva

Since childhood I have loved two things: drawing and making up fairy tales. And by the time I was a junior, the conflict between the two got really intense—I couldn’t decide what career to choose as my desires to become a jounalist and an artist were equally strong.

It was Mom who dismissed my doubts by sending me to study to the institute of mining. A graduate geologist, I worked in the industry only for a week and then fled to a newspaper, where I spent 7 years performing, with great enthusiasm, the tasks of a journalist, a copywriter, an editor and a creative director.

And then I felt an urge to draw again, and I let myself do it. And I don’t have a single regret I did.
