Why did you make this work:
Andersen was one of my favourite writers since childhood. In 2017 i made an exhibition of russian illustrators "The reflection of H.C.Andersen" in the gallery of printing arts(Moscow) and decided to make Andersen's portrait. For me he is a real symbol of children's literature! I would like to gift this portrait to Hans Andersen's museum in Odense(Denmark), the place he was born.

How was the illustration used:
I would like this portrait to be a book cover for Andersen's fairytales and stories, to be a poster of any children's or H.C. Andersen's events.

How did you make this work:
I made this work in color Lithography technique (printing from the stone)
