Shavrin Ivan. What do we know about him? Not much. We will start with the fact that he writes this about himself in the third person and he will have to "suck out of his finger" (Russian proverb) all his regalia. 

Let's start. He began his crazy career with the French collections DOGGYBAGS for the ANKAMA publishing house, with the stories "UNLUCKY" and "GLAZGO". In the same place he created the project "JANITOR" based on the script of the popular author Bartosz Sztybor. Thanks to his sense of composition, Ivan created layouts for several Disney comics and books for the projects "Tangled" and "Frozen". Not far from that, he drew a story for "Toy Story 4" from DARK HORSE. Ivan is the main (or not) Russian author of covers for Marvel - Guardians of the Galaxy, Cosmic Ghost Rider, X Factor, Devil's Reign: The Superior Four and many others. Also, Ivan is the author of covers for Boom Studios, Titan Comics (Bloodbourne series), Label 619... And now he's working on a unique STARWARD series for Heavy Metal, based on a script by a person who does not need an introduction - Steve Orlando! Also, Ivan, in addition to comics, is a member of the animators of the AXIS Studios team, the author of cards for Magic the Gathering and is constantly looking for new facets of his talent. Only forward!
