It seems only appropriate to share artist Vladimir Zarubin’s Olympic illustrations on the eve of the 22nd Winter Games kicking off in his native Russia.  These retro new year’s postcards are believed to be from the mid-1980’s.

Wishing all athletes the best of luck with their pursuits and dreams. . .
