Lubov Nalogina: from Russia with love

Animalarium is happy to feature the work of one more very lovable emerging Russian artist after Irina Troitskaya, Natasha Fadeeva and Victor Dubrovksy. Lubov Nalogina aka Takiyaje is a young illustrator who lives near Moscow. Around the web she is mostly celebrated for her delightful, slightly melancholic and very stilish handmade dolls, but quite naturally I fancy more the quirky sweetness of her animal creations. From her interview with Emerald Boy, I discovered that Luvob loves to read children's books, listens to French chansons from the 30s and 40s, Bjork and Beirut (chapeau!), collects vintage dolls and bears, and is "obsessed with deers,beetles and horses as well".

Everything about Lubov puts a smile on my face!
