Remember I told you about a set of drawings I am doing for my friend?

Here is another one! This is an illustration of a beautiful moment that Oksana had deeply cemented in her memory and that meant so much to her and to her family.

The girl in red coat is Oksana's older daughter . She came with her Dad to the hospital where her Mum was getting ready to give birth to the twins. She even showed me a picture of this moment!

You see, in Russia you are not allowed to visit mum's to be in hospital. You can only stand outside and peek through the window!

I was so glad to illustrate this moment... This drawing will remind the whole family of a very special and magical occasion, and when the twins are older, they can see how much they were wanted and expected!!!


  1. your illustrations are wonderful, Elina! Love all of them, your style is so remarkable :)
    i'm sure that family is delighted to get such lovely drawing which imprinted such an important moment of their life.

    1. Oh thank you very much!!! This is such a lovely comment! It made my day!

  2. Elina, beautiful and touching as the hole story! Best wishes to this loving family :-) Love all the cats and dog and even mice. Makes me smile :-))
