The international cartoon contest named in honour of Rudiy Panko

The international cartoon contest named in honour of Rudiy Panko
(a beekeeper from a farm near Dikanka)

Each kind author will react : “What’s this? A contest named in honour of a beekeeper? They threw an internatinoal contest for the sake of a beekeeper? Thank God! They haven’t plucked enough geese and they haven’t wasted enough rags for paper yet! A few people of different ranks made their fingers inky!”

We are not going to argue with such a kind author. We will only remark that…

– in 2009 it will be 200 years since the birthday of N.V.Gogol, who made Rudiy Panko famous,

– In addition, since the times of Rudiy Panko we do not have such a brilliant narrator, who can describe all human wonders and fears,

– even N.V.Gogol himself wouldn’t turn down a proposal to paint some caricatures of modern people and those that suck up to those in charge, if you don’t mind us saying so,

– we ask you not to confuse our beekeeper with another famous beekeeper (ours is from Dikanka, and that man is from another place).

So we have such an egg-flip (gogol-mogol), ladies and gentlemen!

The theme of the contest is “Gogol-mogol (egg-flip) 2009”

N.V.Gogol himself will help you to know which stories, wonders and fears you should paint:

“The soil is great! And the harvest was always wonderful; but in the bewitched place there was never anything good. They sow the seeds correctly, but something incomprehensible grew: maybe a watermelon or maybe not, maybe a pumpkin or maybe not, may be a cucumber or maybe not…the devil only knows!

For the kind authors we will explain – you should paint our modern life, but don’t forget N.V.Gogol – his characters stay alive even nowadays!
