Happy holidays!

Yeah, it's a tough times. I know.
I've done my share of drinking and eating, now I just wanna sit in peace behind my drawing board. Before some serious work, here's little something I did as an inner joke. Yes, it's rushed, but that's why I love it! : )

Shapes of things to come

Well, I got back last night. It was fun and worth the travel.
After sleeping too long, spend most of the day at the drawing table.
Should be fun, once the fucking flu and pain in the back vanish.

Off to see the wizard

Bob and me are going to Novi Sad today. We'll be back on Sunday. Be good boys and girls and maybe we'll bring you presents! : )

Skiing season

An illustration for Croatian magazine. This time Mrva helped me out (read: did all the work) with coloring.

Monday, December 15, 2008


Just a simple, quick drawing ...

Saturday, December 13, 2008


I've never heard this word before, but web dictionary say so ... : )
Again, coloured by Tonci.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008


By Tonci, of course ... : )

Unfinished sympathy

Eddy and me, some ten or twelve years ago. No pencils, no shame, no apologies ...>:)

Does it really matter?

I have a new favourite Croatian band! "A zar je to važno" have been around for a while, but they've finally released their first album, which I don't take out of my CD player.
Except when I take it with me to bug my friends with it. :)
Oh, yeah, and here's unrelated doodle I did last night, brainless.

Saturday, November 15, 2008


I'm not sure how you people outside of ex-Yugoslavia see our letters with tickmarks (is this the right word?) , but this is announcement about Croatian edition anyway. It's a compilation of my short (and earlier) works published by Darko Macan.
Dakle, šezdesetak strana stripa (plus moj nadahnuti predgovor) za 29 ćuna možete kupiti ovih dana na Interliberu i CRŠ-u, a ubuduće u svim viđenijim strip dućanima u Zagrebu.
Navalite, dok se nije rasprodalo, pa poslije (kad se rasproda) preprodajte po astronomskoj cijeni!

Illustrations for "Klik" magazine are finished, with Tonci's colors, of course! Just a couple of more illos for the schoolbook to finish and I'm ready to enjoy in this year's Crtani Romani Šou ! : )

Great escape

It's been almost a year and a half since the last time I worked for Croatian magazine "Klik". After the whole dry-brush inking I did on Chas I had to try out how it would work on this type of illustrations. The result is somewhere between the old style and Chas look. I'll know if I'm happy with it after Tonci colors it. For now, I'm only sure the rat is from some completely different story. :)

Baron M

A sketch for that schoolbook. Unfortunately, he'll appear just as small figure along some texts, so this portrait won't be published.

Monday, November 3, 2008


Something for that schoolbook I'm working on that turned out nice. Simple drawings (they'll be small when printed) with nice colors by Tonči.

Deep in the woods

Found this drawing today while searching for unused piece of paper. It was done couple of years ago. Started as something else, but ended up as trying out different textures. By the end of it (lower right corner) I've lost patience. I'm such a quitter! >:)

Something different

Ahhhhh, it's been awhile.
Not doing much drawing lately. I took some schoolbook to illustrate, because I thought it's gonna be fun to draw something completely different from Chas.
And it is - different, I mean. Fun? Sometimes. But most of the time I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. I don't have a style developed for such purpose, so it's kinda hit and miss situation.
I'll probably get into it soon. As soon as I'll be doing the last illustration in the book! : )

Tomislav trailer

It was brought to my attention (thanks, Božo) that somebody made a trailer for a comic about Tomislav, the first Croatian king, I did last year with Darko and Tonči. Good work, boys! I wish I knew about it earlier.

Quick nude

Well, not really nude.

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh ...
I can't describe how much I'm enjoying my time off! Having long coffee breaks, sorting out files and papers (recycling, recycling), replying long-postponed e-mails, visiting friends and even partying deep into the night.
I'm still avoiding digging into the mountain of bills and legal papers I have to take care of, but I already started doodling and sketching without obligations.
Some night ago I was over at Mrva's and Bob's place. As always, it was lot of fun and we listened to Mance (among others). So, I tried to to draw him from the memory. First drawing is nowhere near to what it should be. Couldn't shake off my routine. The second one was closer, but despite my clear memory of his distinctive features, I couldn't get it right. So we did a quick Google check and the third one fell in the place just right.
Made me happy! : )

The end

JC : So if we're done with all that, can you start your bloody cab up and take me home ...
Chas : Happy to oblige John ...

What's the first thing you notice when you're chasing deadlines?
You really don't need those pencils detailed. >:)

That's the sound of days flying by ...
Fed-ex guy rang on my door couple of days ago, bringing comps of Chas #2. It's already on the shelves of comic-shops all around USA.

And #4 is already announced.

I'm so screwed.

A promise

More than a month ago I've promised to show new process of doing the pages. Well, guess what - it sucks! At least for me. I did most of the fun part in layout, penciling became tracing, and final result is frustrating because I've lost all the freshness I had at first stage.

Money shot

It will look much cooler after Matt does his magic over it ... : )

Monday, July 28, 2008


Well, the winners are, in fact, Brian K. Vaughan, Pia Guerra and Jose Marzan Jr. This weekend at San Diego Comic-Con "Y - The Last Man" won Eisner Awards for best continuing series and best penciller/ inker team! Congratulations, folks! : )

Some warm-up sketches before inking ...

Oh, the horror !!!

As some of you know, in early '90's I've been working for German publisher on short horror stories, but most of you never really saw those pages. I've never hide the fact that it was a complete hack-job and that 90% of it was awful crap. Some of you might think I'm exaggerating, but here are the facts; I wasn't really skilled at the time, I never did my best working on them (if I had any enthusiasm, it would vanish after first page), we weren't allowed to use lots of blacks, draw blood and spilled entrails and - on top of it all - they would color it like this ...

The rumor was that some nuns in monastery were hired to do the colors. It was never confirmed, but by the looks of it I guess it could be true! >:)

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

I GOT IT ! ! ! !

Yes, the comps of first issue of Chas mini finally arrived today!
If you get a chance to read it, let me know if you liked it.
And if you didn't, well OK, do tell, but choose your words carefully ... : )
Sorry for the bad quality of pic. Batteries are empty and I couldn't wait for them to recharge.

More Chas

Whoa, third issue is already announced !!! You can see the cover if you go there, and I'll give you some bits and pieces here ...
