New Skillshare class

Happy to announce our new Skillshare class Commercial illustration: Creating a City Postcard with Gouache and Photoshop. Here is a small introduction video, and the full class you can find on Skillshare.  Thanks so much for your wonderful feedback, it's very encouraging!

n this class I'll take you through my step-by-step process to create a commercial illustration for a Berlin postcard.

We’ll combine two worlds of physical and digital to create a soulful authentic product, like using traditional gouache paint to add an artistic feel to our work. The technique combines hand-drawn textures with Photoshop resulting in a wonderful print-ready postcard that can be used as merchandise or as a gift.

By the end of this class you’ll learn some important principles of commercial illustration and incorporate them in your own work. Both advanced and beginner creatives can benefit from this class!

Skillshare class

Skillshare class is finally live! I'm very excited to announce "Inks: 5 Effects to add a dramatic impact to your illustration" workshop!

Ever wondered how just a simple brush stroke can catch the viewer's attention and cause a huge emotional reaction?

In this class I’ll show you my 5 favorite inking tips and tricks which can add a dramatic effect to your illustration, design or any artwork. Many of them I use in my works. By the end of this class you will know how easily and quickly with some inks strokes you can lead the viewer's eye and bring any image to live.

Beauty is all around us, and and I'm very excited to show interpretation of it in this particular way!

New Visions Exhibition

I'm proud to take part in "New Visions" exhibit held by Society of Illustrators, New York

The Society is proud to showcase a selection of work from our Illustrator-S members representing artists of diverse and unique talent under the age of 32 who have chosen to support our mission early in their careers.

Society of illustrators, New York. Anna Sokolova. New Visions

Since its inception in 1901, the Society, through its many distinguished members, has sought to promote the art of illustration. A prime requisite of membership is the active participation by each individual, and of the organization as a whole, to give voice to the spirit and being of the Society. 

Our members support the Society's mission of promoting the art of illustration by appreciating its history and evolving nature through exhibitions, lectures and education.

Artists are inducted into the Society membership based on their body of work.  Each Illustrator-S member has been accepted because of their tremendous talent and artistic skill, and these young members have begun to take on an active role in the community. We are proud to display a collection of pieces by our future leaders of the industry. "

Выставка одной картины: FUTURUM II Анна Соколова

Скоро скоро в Центре Искусства и Музыки библиотеки им. Маяковского на Невском 20 откроется выставка FUTURUM II с моим психоделическим космонавтом:)


Exhibition poster. "One painting exhibition: FUTURUM II" by Anna Sokolova

Центр искусства и музыки библиотеки Маяковского, НТЦ Микроэлектроники РАН и ООО «Ленц» представляют проект «Выставка одной картины».

Данный цикл выставок позволит взглянуть на известных и любимых художников в новом свете в прямом смысле – т.е. в новом освещении. НТЦ Микроэлектроники РАН и ООО «Ленц» предоставляют Центру уникальный осветительный прибор.

Интеллектуальный светильник создан на основе принципа динамического RGB-цветосмешения и управляется компьютерной программой. Новые технологии RGB-светодиодного освещения позволяют менять цветовую температуру при освещении различных полотен, обеспечивая «индивидуальную» настройку для наилучшего восприятия цветовой палитры конкретной картины.

Проект станет экспериментальной площадкой для работы с принципиально новым освещением. Центр видит свою основную задачу в данном проекте в разработке оптимальных критериев и методики освещения, которые помогут создавать комфортную световую среду для произведения искусства. Проект можно назвать интерактивным, поскольку для создания методики необходимо активное участие зрителей.
