Use a pencil as a magic wand

Karina Eibatova is an illustrator and fine-artist born in St.Petersburg, Russia. She lives a nomadic lifestyle and works as a freelancer, currently she is based in Tokyo. 

Karina has been fortunate enough to make her living solely from  her artworks and she shares the creative process and reveal some of her favorite tips on Skillshare.  

The artist specializes in:

  • drawing
  • painting
  • illustration
  • murals
  • video
  • typography

Her portfolio reveals a versatile artist equally adept at colorful surrealist explorations as well as more traditional approaches. Karina's work is connected to the notions of nature, peace and love. Influenced by Earth and space, she delicately transforms floral motives into her own surreal, psychedelic scenes, rebelling against the remorseless actions of society and the continual destruction of the environment.
