Drawing kit for creation of koloboks "Kolobok Big GDK"
of Big format slowly but confidently find the admirers to whom new emotion is required in one situation or another. I cannot sit from morning to night and draw everything that visitors in letters, at the forum or on the site ask me. Because of it I've made a drawing kit "Kolobok Big GDK"
which, by the way, I promised to do for a long time but for now I couldn't find a time to complete it. Now anybody who would like to get a new kolobok of BIG-format can try to draw it.
It will be not superfluous to remind you that any drawing which you will draw by use of this kit will be allowed for use in your personal purposes only.

Kolobok site is 5 years old!
. Exactly at 9th of november 5 years ago the kolobok
's site has been created. Surely the site in distant 2004 was not the same like now. During these years the site was changed twice cardinally. But it is still the home and the place of birth of koloboks
. For these five years two new types of koloboks
saw the light. The big and mini. Somebody loved them, somebody not. But independently of the size they are staying the same koloboks
like they were five years ago. For this time koloboks
were recognized officially. The author's opinion and simple artists's opinions became important. Well, not all and not all the way, but it's a small victory though. The pleasant fact that many people associate our koloboks
solely with positive emotions. I've never thought that koloboks
will be so popular not only at the internet forums but in a letters in the instant messaging programs too. Now hard to decide where they are more popular at the websites or in programs, but collaboration with instant messaging programs has brought to us extensive popularity.About sad things
. It would not be desirable to speak in such day about sad things but after all it is necessary to mention about I do not solve yet the reason on which many gifted artists take off to paintings. Probably I will once solve this and I will return in our harmonious cheerful numbers of what jobs so were grown fond to you. But so far many of interesting galleries don’t updating and this is sad.About admirers
. I wish to say many thanks to all of you! Your comments, letters, messages at the forum give a chance to look in a new way at many things and often encourage me to get down to drawing. But you should understand the more insistently you ask to make any art for you the unwillingness to draw it is more strongly. Any gift in all sincerity (I consider your kind wishes as gift) will be accepted only if instead of ask nothing.About assistants
. I would like to express special thank to everybody who is helping and were helping to the site: to artists, translators, assistants and loyal fans. I won't name names because I'm afraid to forget somebody or to wound somebody's feelings. I speak to everybody: your support, financial aid, kind letters with warm wishes help me much to work on the site and make koloboks
. I would not cope with all the stuff well without you.About the future
. I do not build any grandiose plans for the present, though as usual. The life itself will place all in the places. I hope, I will have a rest, I will draw a heap of amusing koloboks
which all will like to you and finally all will be as before well! Besides in Internet still remains so many places where don’t know anything about koloboks
Thanks you friends! Best regards, Mantsurov (Aiwan) Ivan.

QIP Infium + KOLOBOK [Big Pack]
It is not a secret for true admirers of a QIP Infium
program that a nearest version of a program will contain expanded set of smiles
. I know that army of admirers of QIP Infium
is numerous but amount of opponents of the program and smiles proper is also sizeable. Now there is a positive moment in this news that the package will be collected on the basis of my package of series Kolobok Original [Big Pack]
which contains hundred five works. And it means that used by hundreds of thousands of people a pack from my site will be understandable for all who will use new version QIP Infium
. Besides that almost all smiles
from ICQ 6.5
will be clear in QIP Infium
since the additional set in ICQ was created on the basis of codes of the expanded pack. And many thanks to managers of AOL which have considered my advice and took codes of koloboks
which I recommended them.
And in conclusion here is sad news. I drew nothing for a long time because I’ve got a creative crisis. And I do not know how long it will last …
