Merry Xmas & Crappy New Year

My official Christmas card for this year:


An early, embryonic version of the same drawing:

A Xmas card from the vault... one of my favorites, with new colors and some subtle improvements:

If you're a Grinch in heart, this one's for you:


In the end, here's a Lucky Rabbit and Miserable Mouse. It's a birthday gift for Tara:

Seasons Greetings and best wishes for 2012 from me and miss AntRat (my collaborator and partner in these artistic crimes).

Fat Bastard

Garfield and his pals - a birthday gift for a little cousin who adores this fat lazy orange bastard :)
I tried to be faithful to the original look of main characters (perhaps this could pass as an official cover for a Garfield comic book), while still doing them in my style, with enough of my own idiosyncrasies and odd bits.

Skadi x2

A double portion of Skadi fan art!
Actually, I'm cheating... these are two versions of (nearly) the same drawing, and they're both interesting in a different way. The first one has full and detailed backgrounds, plus an extra character. I'd perhaps give a slight nod of preference to the other version with Skadi alone, because I like the way the character stands out on a simple and less cluttered background. Plus, the lack of her sidekick Diseasoid might imply that she's actually eating his meat :)

An art-trade/commission from a friend and fan at deviantART.
This drawing went through various changes and permutations (though the main idea remained the same since the beginning). Here's the final version:

Just a quick drawing, straight from memory, without a reference. It was made for a Looney Tunes themed art jam at deviantART. A different version of this drawing can be seen here.

A Radio Picture

on Thursday, June 02, 2011
Here's a commission for RyeBread Radio, a Chicago-based Performing Arts radio show. A show host, Akeem Lawanson has contacted me recently upon a recommendation from one of their listeners, to do a caricature illustration of all three RyeBread Radio members. And the final result is...



Version 2:


These are funny guys, and I enjoyed doing this illustration very much. If you want to find more about RyeBread Radio and listen to their shows, check these two links:

And speaking of commissions... here's a brand new music video / short film by Ivan Perić and me. We've been asked to make a video for song "Aerial Assasins" by Grof Bakula feat. Da Commission.
First, here's the shorter 4-minute version for TV broadcast:



And this is the whole epic 10-minute monster, with special intro (the music used for the first half is "Kult of Red Pyramid: Half-life"):



If you have fast internet connection, I recommend you to watch both videos in HD quality. The shooting and editing of this video was really enjoyable experience (though occasionally a little bit frustrating), and it was a good training for our next feature length project. Also, during the last month, our feature film from 2010 called "The Place Where The Last Man Died" received a nomination for the best foreign film at Swansea Bay Film Festival. It was also screened at SFeraKon, Croatia's annual Science Fiction festival.

Beside the sorry subject matter, this is a mix of traditional inking and digital color. If you want to see how the "traditional" part of the picture looks like (before all the Photoshop color and trickery was added), take a look here.

From now on, you can also follow me on Tumblr. I'm going to post there some sketches, works in progress, finished artwork (often in some alternate versions compared to the blog updates), stills from my new movie projects, etc. It's still under construction, but already worth checking out.

Revenge Of The Easter Egg

on Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Here's some kind of sequel (or evil twin) to my Easter drawing from the last year. This time, the roles have been reversed, with peculiar and amusing results:

Many thanks to wonderful Miss AntRat for her sharp eye and great advice... and for bringing some brighter colors into my artistic world :)


Regarding the news about "The Place Where The Last Man Died" - the film has been successfully shown on several festivals in Croatia and around the world, with more screenings to come soon. Also, a very good and perceptive review (in English) was published three weeks ago on the popular Strange Kids Club website:
Trailer Terrors: The Place Where the Last Man Died (2010).

When You're Strange

on Monday, January 31, 2011
Hello there! Anybody still watching this blog? I guess it's a right time for the monthly update:

Strange Kid

Looks like some belated Halloween drawing, but that's an ILL-ustration I created for the Strange Kid Anthology, a collection of horror-themed short comics and artwork. This exciting project is initiated by Rondal Scott III, the curator of Strange Kids Club website and creator of Strange Kid character. This book will contain contributions from numerous cool artists (myself included), and it should be out for sale in mid-March so don't miss it. And in the meantime go ahead and visit the Strange Kids Club website: http://www.strangekidsclub.com/

Now some news about "The Place Where The Last Man Died". The film has been selected into the competition program at Swansea Bay Film Festival in UK, and it is going to be screened there in May (the exact date and time is not known at the moment). I'll keep you updated about this, and all the next screenings at the festivals around the world. And here's the cast and main crew of the film, unmasked:

The Dream Division

We recently formed together a small production company called "Dream Division". The fact that we took our first official group photo on a sinking ship doesn't have any symbolic meaning (except that it looks cool). You'll see and hear more from us...

But for now, Strange Kid wants to have the final word:
