The Brothers Karamazov – Ivan.

Reading Dostoyevsky’s “The Brothers Karamazov” left a pretty big impression on me, so it ended up translating into a few drawings. This is one of the three brothers, Ivan.

From Wikipedia: “He is a 24-year-old rationalist, disturbed especially by the apparently senseless suffering in the world, depicted as highly intelligent. He says to Alyosha in the chapter “Rebellion” (Bk. 5, Ch. 4), “It’s not God that I don’t accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket.” From an early age, Ivan is sullen and isolated.”

    Absolutely stunning work!
    I’m not sure if this would be an appropriate thing to ask, but could I use your Karamazov drawings as visual reference for a presentation? That would be citing the sources, of course.
    And please forgive my poor English, I’m not a native..

      Hi there,

      Thanks a lot, you’re very kind! I’m flattered you’d like to use these as a visual reference.
      Please go ahead. It’d be kind of you to mention the source when you do 🙂

      Thank you!
