Many of these projects happened while I was “productively procrastinating” (i.e., not writing!) and most of them are pretty nerdy (i.e., have some sort of connection to Russian culture).
|I really, really like Russian avant-garde art from the 1910s and 20s, so one winter break during grad school I made this set of constructivist-inspired throw pillows.|
|There are some phrases that I’ve heard or seen so often in Russia that I just haven’t seen anywhere else. They’re usually negative in some way, and the hazy glow of nostalgia and a deliberately literal interpretation makes them – to me at any rate – hilarious. So I put my favorites on t-shirts.|
