Russian Artist Conquers the Internet With His Dark Humor

Anton Gudim is a Moscow-based illustrator better known as gudim_public on Instagram. With his dark humor, the Russian artist has attracted an audience of over 742 thousand Instagram followers. He is an IT engineer by day, while drawing has been his main hobby for more than 5 years.

“I love coming up with ideas, turning them into illustrations and sharing the results with my audience,” the artist shared on Patreon. “My normal week is 5 days of A4 work at the office, making observations and taking notes in my spare time, and then drawing during evenings.”

Gudim dreams about becoming an independent full-time artist.

“I have recently started taking steps towards making my dream come true, as I’ve held the first exhibition of my works in Moscow,” he added. “At the moment I’m planning to take the exhibition on the road to other cities, both within Russia and abroad.”
