Thanks for dropping by this page filled with a lot of fan-art and not much originality, where the art style is rather messy (we call it sketchy because that makes it cool) and the backgrounds are starting to become a common occurrence. Expect Nordics, fanservice and some terrible handwriting.

Hello all, hope you had a great holiday! Thanks as always for the support, it really does help the motivation kick in. Here's a general FAQ of my art & upcoming plans:
- I'm sticking with monthly uploads, since it's been working well the past year or so.
- Future raffles will likely happen, watch this space!
Will you ever upload your comics to Tumblr?
No. I'd love to, but they're long and DA is much kinder to my comics. I put a lot of effort into them so it's more rewarding to have them stay here where people can leave feedback.
The maivalkov blog will remain a glorious pit of mixed fandom hell and continue to be updated.
In the meantime however, I have created a second blog purely for Haikyuu! art, which can be found here (points if you can guess what the username means).
In this blog you can make art requests related to that fandom only, so no nordic requests etc will be accepted.
- So I don't draw the same thing constantly. I have been drawing Nordics since 2011/2012, so it's fair to say you guys have enough content for now. XD
- To develop new styles I can use here
- To permit art requests for once, but to a smaller fanbase so I won't be overloaded with work
Why no Nordic art blog?
- There are too many of you, and just one of me. Opening requests could be hell.
- DA works just fine at keeping all the nordic related art in one place.
Does this mean no more Nordic art?
Hell noooooo. I love them all too much to stop anytime soon.
What about requests here?
Highly unlikely to ever happen, BUT I will be releasing polls every now and then so you can vote on new content for comics and such, as I have done in the past with the OC poll, please look out for them!
Basically if you see a poll saying 'pick a nordic' it's most definite that the winner will be the focus of the next artwork. As such, you still get a say in my work. XD
That's all for now, if anyone has questions, please leave them below!
I know the new blog doesn't focus on everyone's love, but it'd be great to see the same level of support elsewhere, please consider checking it out.
Also blog is a tad naked, so request away!
