Specializing in book art, Sveta Dorosheva illustrates characters and worlds inspired by fairy tales, folklore and mythologies. She is also fascinated with Medieval emblemata and bizarre-grotesque imagery, and that tends to transpire to her many of her drawings. The images included within post are part of a new series titled “Allegorical Miniatures,” which were inked by hand in a A5 notebook.
