Ilya Kazakov

Илья в первую голову талантливый иллюстратор. Кажется и семи ста картинок представленных в портфолио не хватит, чтобы обозреть весь талант автора. А во вторую голову, Илья автор небольших, но уникальных проектов, к примеру Creatizm.

Talented Russian illustrator Ilya Kazakov shows enormous amount of graphic and illustration on his site.
