IF: Pioneer

I haven't been posting for a long long time. But now I feel an "urge" again.


I also come from former USSR, where "pioneers" were a common tradition. Kids had to join this organization around 9-10 years old until 14 years old. There was nothing wrong with this organization, kids were doing nice things to those in need (yes, doing these "good deeds" were forced by the rules, but there is nothing wrong with that. I think. Kids grew up learning how to help people, clean up, be active in social life... )

There are few great books written about them. Here is sample of the book I found on ebay. It was one of my favorite books when I was a child. I was a pioneer too, and I grew up a good person!

Anyways, I decided not to draw anything related to soviet pioneers. I just like kitties and snow :)


  1. Oh wow - your story reminds me of Girl Scouts when I was younger. Great story, and cute illustration!

  2. This is TOO cute! And so like cats. Well done!

  3. Wonderful picture and wonderful story. I was also pioneer when I was a child in former Czechoslovakia ;-)

  4. Lovely picture and an interesting story. I hadn't realised that there were so many 'pioneers' in the world

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is such a sweet image! It reminds me of the five kitties who live next door to me!

  6. Great story and terrific work! Your kitty is so cute!
