Husband-and-wife team Andrej Dugin and Olga Dugina combine the style of classic Russian illustration with the grotesque fantasies of Bosch and Bruegel in a series of children’s books, including a collaboration with Madonna.

Originally from Russia, the couple now live in Stuttgart. You can find more about them on their website.
