One of the most recognizable images — and a source of endless memes — is the “Evolution Silhouette” depicting a step-by-step rise from our primate ancestors. I play with the silhouettes in my “Viva la Evolución!” series of cartoons to poke fun at social media, politics, religion, and human behavior. I try to give a fresh and humorous treatment and a new level of meaning to a classic image.

I was born and raised in Russia where I became intimately familiar with the absurd. At age 16, I published my first cartoon in the humor magazine Krokodil (“Crocodile”). My passion for drawing and visual storytelling led me to become an animator and film director.

In 2007, I moved to California, where I work as a director, storyboard artist, character designer, and illustrator.

Check out my Pushpins Animations on YouTube: short, absurd, sometimes foul-mouthed cartoons.
