The first time I met Lika Volkova, she called the big stripe cat I lived with, “a fiiiiiiiish” with her Ukranian accent. She said the cat’s fur pattern reminded her of a fish. For some reason, I always remember that first meeting. Above is a picture of her recently at her studio and below is a picture of her from almost 10 years ago. Lika is an amazing artist/designer, you can see some of her clothing designs here.
