In 1965-1970 I was studying physics at the University of Novosibirsk. My first cartoon was published in 1970.
After the University I was working as engineer in different cities in USSR until 1980. In 1979 I got a prize at the Gabrovo
international exhibition, Bulgaria. After this I become freelance cartoonist. I and my family emigrated to the United States
1990. My first drawing in USA was published April 1990 in the NYTimes Book Review. I am working for Editorial section: The New York Times, Newsday, The National Law Journal, Courrier International.
