Welcome to my
creative world!
I'm Andrew Tarusov, an artist and illustrator originally from Russia, now proudly calling Berlin my home. Throughout my career, I've had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with esteemed names such as Playboy, Disney, 20th Century Fox, and Penthouse.

My artistic style draws inspiration from the timeless allure of pin-up art, vintage aesthetics, and the ever-evolving landscape of pop culture. I take great pleasure in breathing new life into beloved characters, whether it's transforming Disney princesses into captivating pin-up icons or crafting engaging comic narratives that transport readers to immersive worlds.

Beyond illustration, I have a genuine passion for erotic art and its ability to convey the beauty of human sensuality. In addition, I am an avid connoisseur of movies, with a particular affinity for horror films. Exploring the art of storytelling in various genres fuels my creativity and allows me to connect with diverse audiences.

My artistic journey has been enriched by my love for indie music, the captivating allure of burlesque performances, the mesmerizing world of anime and manga, and the thrill of travel. Having spent five incredible years in Los Angeles, I've been fortunate to immerse myself in different cultures and gain a broader perspective.

I invite you to join me on this exciting artistic adventure, where my portfolio reflects the fusion of classic aesthetics, contemporary creativity, and a passion for all things cinematic and captivating. Thank you for being a part of my creative journey!
