Konstantin hails from Russia, and according to his DA account (http://jackaloope.deviantart.com/), his favorite cartoon character in Pete Puma. I feel this is relevant information.
So, one great thing about international artists is that they have a completely different itinerary often for their work – they are inspired by a whole group of artists that we haven’t heard of (and vise versa). Not talking about “masters” per se, but general talent pools shift from area to area. Therefore, these works are fresh and new and explore grounds I haven’t seen here in the US – hitting every key value of art spot on while still having tons of fun.
