personal piece

Pod’ezd (also know as padik) is an entrance hall of any apartment building and a permament part of any city-dwelling Russian’s reality, be it in the present or past. These places vary in size, color and decorations, however, they always have character however run-down they might be.

In this illustration, I lovingly tried to recreate an overall structure and feel of the padik in the building where I used to live when I was small.
