A friend of mine, Arsen Tomsky, initiated the new project called Yakutia’s Wild Life. It is the series of black-and-white comic strips about living in the coldest Siberian region. Done in English and in the way of positive jokes.

Sorry, friends. Can’t stop recording videos and taking pictures of the current extreme cold weather in Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk.
