Home page and Eliseev creativity Skobelev, humor and satire (in particular, a caricature). And children's books, which they apply – is so-called "funny books". Munchausen himself in their pictures – never losing heart, cheerful, energetic, and often daring, but at the same time extremely frivolous and funny man. Funny his little skinny figure, it long crimson nose, dashing mustache, famous for pigtail. Nothing but smiles and laughter, can not call it "harsh", "arrogant" look, "unassailable rigor, ability to maintain imperturbable calm, even" grace " under the most extraordinary circumstances. Very funny and all of the events depicted by artists. Freed from the leash "best shot" Baron horse in front of the amazed audience playfully jumping from the top of the church right to his owner. "Intimidating" fare-comic scene Munchausen by Winter Petersburg in a sleigh harnessed with them a huge wolf: almost fell from his seat driver a passing carriage, scared sitting in her people stood in horror at the rearing horse.

And yet higher above them soared (not too much fear there?) Mighty steed presided over by a Bronze Horseman. Menacing and comical at the same time the culprit of all this commotion – a wolf, a huge, wide open mouth, he fiercely and At the same time, a little sly one eye looking sideways toward the audience.

Adventure and humor in their drawings inseparable. So, we have considered examples allow us to draw conclusions about what kind of relationship and interaction exist between the book of literature and illustration, between image and word.

Illustrations are reinforce one or another part of the literary narrative. They give readers a chance to look at the events and heroes of the book from the perspective of the artist. But the text for its part affects the perception of readers of illustrations. Therefore, while reading the story, some images of heroes Dora perceived as a much more comic, funny, than they really are, and some illustrations Skobelev and Eliseev by comparing them with the text reveals the essence of fairy-tale fantasy. This is so complex and delicate process of mutual influence, mutual influence, mutual complement and enrich the content of the text and graphic design. Committed original synthesis – that is, the compound complementarity, mutual literature and graphics, the synthesis of images and words.
