"My work is heavily inspired by botany, architecture (which I studied in college), and literature," explains Mostov. "Many of my illustrations feature people doing everyday things or celebrating day-to-day life. I like to explore the intersection of digital and analog mediums, taking advantage of both technologies' precision and the happy accidents which occur in the real world."
