Hi to all!
Today we got something special for you. This post is devoted to the remarkable Russian cartoon MARTINKO (1987) which was written and directed by Eduard Nazarov. It is the classic now and Mr.Nazarov become one of the most dear and favorite modern directors in Russia. The cartoon is available on DVD edition of Masters of Russian Animation 4 and it is possible to download it in MOV format from here for the purpose of preview :-). But we must warn you. The English subtitles are not very good and sadly do not transfer all colors of the Old Russian speech.
So this is the art work for MARTINKO and all these drawings were done by Eduard Nazarov himself.

All art material was presented by Vladimir Nikitin
