last weekend I started working on a illustration of X-men characters on the beach. The idea was to present the characters from the series in a non-comic environment and in a bit more realistic style. I colored it... well, I'm still coloring it with pencil colors (crayons).
There's a comic book festival in Makarska, Croatia called Mafest and this year one of the guests is C. B. Cebulski who is an editor at Marvel. Yes, The Marvel.
It is a great opportunity to show my work and maybe even strike a work deal. Since it's The Marvel we're talking about here, I'm going to keep my hopes in check and I'll show him a drawing of a character that is most likely to appeal to Marvel editor.
I'll make a photo of the t-shirts one of these days.
Amnesia won an award for book design
The Association of Publishers and Booksellers of Bosnia and Herzegovina awarded Amnesia as the best graphic design of a book printed in 2009.
It is such a great honor to win this award for my first comic. I won an award for the comic before and now I win for the book. I'm just so amazed that people even notice the work I make, yet award it.
What makes the ceremony even greater is the fact that the same award was given to a rival designer, and a mighty good one, Aleksandra Nina Knezevic. It is a huge motivation to compete with creative competition she is.
Here is the photo of the two of us at the ceremony.
Final batch of comics
And here is the 3rd batch of comics made at, and about, my workplace.
