|About the Illustrator: Natasha Tabatchikova
Natasha is a talented artist and illustrator. She is 36 years old. Natasha lives in Novosibirsk. Natasha has been drawing since her very childhood. After having finished school in 1992, she went up to the Novosibirsk Pedagogical University to the faculty of Art and Graphic with the painting, drawing and etching specialization. In 1997 Natasha graduated from the University, but it was difficult to find a proper job right on her new profession and Natasha started to work in an advertising company as a computer graphic designer.
After having become quite experienced in computer design, Natasha began to cooperate with the company producing cards and the packaging for confectionery. After that Natasha became a freelance artist and got a large project - illustrating “the Chronicles of Narnia,” the project lasted almost the year.
Meanwhile one of Natasha’s friends sent her portfolio to Artemy Lebedev Studio http://www.artlebedev.ru/ – the largest creative studio in Russia. Although the studio is situated in Moscow, they liked Natasha’s works and invited her to join their company as an illustrator and later as a storyboard artist. Natasha worked there for 4 years.
After Lebedev’s studio, Natasha joined a newly established creative agency - the BangBang studio http://www.bangbangstudio.ru/ who are mainly engaged in storyboarding and illustrating. At present Natasha is continuing to work for the BangBang as well as trying to realize herself as an independent freelance artist.
