Based in St. Petersburg, the couple created "Morning Cup of Comics" — a digital diary they hope to one day publish as a graphic novel. The series follows Vova and Nastya and features the everyday life of a couple in a long-term relationship.
Daily honey-do's, like washing dishes, transform into playful daydreams.
The comics are fun but also an honest portrayal of two people in a deep, committed relationship.
