Markelov Alexander

21.08.1967

Cartoonist

He was born on August 21, 1967 in Tashkent.

In 1992 he graduated from the Tashkent-Automobile-Road Institute (incidentally, after serving two years in the army in the SCA).
But he did not go to work as an engineer, because, having published his first cartoon in the magazine “Mushtum” in 1989, he “fell ill” with this.
In 1992-99 he worked as an artist in the newspaper Pravda Vostoka, working in several other publishing houses and publishing his cartoons in various newspapers and magazines in Russia.
In 1999, having accepted Russian citizenship, he moved to Tambov.
From 2000 to 2010, he exclusively worked with the publishing house Logos Media, where he painted almost 1400 only one magazine covers, not counting several thousand different drawings.
In 1994-2000, he actively participated in cartoon contests, receiving two main prizes (in Belgium and Peru) and a dozen other differences.
