For several months, I have been delighted and moved by the short graphic stories produced by artists and author Dasha Ziborova. Once a month, she produces a graphic story about a part of her life, something that spurred her thoughts, or a fiction…usually one that is moving and funny at the same time!
To check out her stories for yourself, go to her page on RealTimeInInk. There you can get a glimpse of the kind of artwork she produces. You can also follow the link embedded in the page to sign up for the subscription yourself.
Here’s how she describes her work:
Real Time In Ink is a series of graphic stories by artist and author Dasha Ziborova. It covers a broad range of topics from people, places, parenting, art, music, cats, food, travel, to occasional politics and scary crazy Russians.
Dasha Ziborova is a graphic novelist, picture book illustrator and a muralist. She was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and came to New York in 1991. Since then Dasha illustrated five children’s picture books including the award-winning Crispin the Terrible published by Callaway Editions, and In English, of Course and The Numbers Dance by Gingerbread House. She is currently working on developing short graphic stories about New York and it’s inhabitants.
