I did this work for L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest. It was printed in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 23. This is my first try in doing illustrations. It was interesting experience for me to implement somebody’s idea in life, to understand this story as if it is my own thoughts and feelings. In my illustration according to given story I have shown that how King Tutankhamun is used as a doll without paying attention that he is alive and has his own feelings and wishes. Character above him is collective image of all the qualities of typical modern man today influenced by money, lust for power and using other people for own profit. In short I am showing the whole tragic situation of a King from the past struggling in future. While doing my artwork I was thinking of illustrating whole story without choosing some particular scene because I was impressed with the complete idea. Hope this try was successful. ) As usually, I appreciate any comments and critiques. ))

    Yuliya, I somehow happened to see PhotoMasterskaja magazine, though I cannot understand most of the text there, I understand digital art on the pages of the magazine. You are very talented artist, with beautiful style and colors and I am confused seeing that you still don't have more recognition in the art world. I am sure this will soon change. I wish you all the luck, greetings from Croatia

    Your artwork got a lot of admiration at the Writers of the Future event. You did a fantastic job and Andrea, the writer of the story, really liked it too. Well, that's important! I hope you do well and I wish you all the best for your future.
    Best, Peter
