OK, this is not actually a report about the Festival, it's about how I had fun with friends. Some of those pics took Mrva (the cool ones), some Bob, some me (the crappy ones).
The three of us travelled to Split in a sleeping car. Bob lulled us to sleep reading Kurt Vonnegut. Damir Žitko and his brother drove us from there to Baška Voda (near Makarska), where we stayed in luxurious hotel. BIG, BIG, BIG THANKS to Dado and Dado, who organized our stay and the whole festival.
Bob and me.
Damir Žitko and Talaja, 'The Bible Boyz'!!!
Makarska is beautiful, with mountain Biokovo ascending in the background too big too catch on one photo.
Art Cafe, where the whole thing took place.
Book Cafe; great coffee, lots of books, cuban cigars and Joy Division playing from the inside!
Alfredo Castelli, the writer and Lucio Filippucci, one of the artsits on Martin Mystere were this year's special guests. Hrmmmm ... Castelli's not here on the picture. The one in the middle is Filippucci, there's Dado and Dado on his left.
Giulia Brusco and Matt Hollingsworth were another foreign guests. Kinda, since Matt lives in Zagreb now. Besides being great colorists, they're both fantastic people that win you over in a minute!
I have to admit I missed most of the program, but did a lot of drinking with friends. Some of them caught on camera...
Bob, Matt and Talaja.
Esad and Talaja.
Diego, man of eight languages, Nara and Giulia in the background and Talaja's shoulder.
Iztok Sitar, still sober orrrrr.... not so drunk, yet.
Slaven, measuring the height of the corn.
Bob, Esad, Misch and Talaja.
Talaja and Boc.
I don't know who's that!!??!
We weren't drinking all the time. During the day I was gathering my strength for the night and tried to push some food down my throat, chilling with the crew.
Dekara, doing his routine. Notice Denis Farina lookalike behind him.
Dushman, two-dimensional man!
Sandman, trying to ignore the flag.
Frano Petruša and Bob.
Macan, always doodling.
" I'm gonna kill somebody! Knife? Or fork?"
"Waiter, check please! We should leave."
More soon, in the meantime, much, much more photos from Mafest on http://forum.stripovi.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=25763

I'm packing my things and leaving tonight for Makarska where Mafest is held from 18th to 20th of May. It's gonna be lots of fun and maybe I'll post some photos while I'm there. If not, there'll be extensive report when I'm back. The drawing I'm posting here is done for the charity auction that's gonna be held there on Saturday, aiming to help a kid that needs an operation.
