Fashion illustrations described by Kettunen as "direct, energetic, spontaneous and intuitive representations."
He states that "by capturing only the essence, they are expressions of moments, experiences and feelings such as short interactions with live models, drawing backstage at fashion shows or capturing the show at concerts or the theater. Inspired by the current popular culture, I draw mostly human figures, but in an abstracted and expressive manner by using techniques of fine arts such as in (Neo) Expressionism."

Russian-born Vania Zouravliov was inspired from an early age by influences as diverse as The Bible, Dante’s Divine Comedy, early Disney animation and North American Indians. Something of a child prodigy in his homeland, he was championed by many influential classical musicians including Ashkenazi, Spivakov and Menuhin. He even had television programs made about him and was introduced to famous communist artists, godfathers of social realism, who told him that his work was from the Devil.
By the age of 13, Vania Zouravliov was exhibiting internationally, visited Canterbury several times as well as Paris, Colmar and Berlin. He subsequently studied in the UK, and during this time began creating illustrations for The Scotsman and comics for Fantagraphics and Dark Horse in the US.
