  • Dr Jekyll on a business trip in Croatia
    Dr Jekyll on a business trip in CroatiaPoster for Vizkultura, noted Croatian on-line platform for visual culture & art. The illustration reveals a fanciful case that occurred on the Croatian coast. Dr Jekyll, a well-known character from the iconic Gothic novella “Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson came to Croatia on a summer holiday.

  • Bring the joy
    Bring the joyAccording to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the necessities of a single human being are defined throughout several categories: physiological needs (food, water, warmth, rest), safety needs (home, security, employment), belongingness and love needs (intimate relationships, family and friends), esteem needs (feeling of accomplishment) and self-actualization (achieving one’s full potential, including creative activities).

  • I ♥ ZG
    I ♥ ZGGrowing up in the suburbs of Koprivnica, watching movies such as The Warriors and Hoop Dreams, gazing at movie scenes with views of New York and Chicago, I developed a fascination for big cities. For a 4-year-old kid, New York and Chicago were hard to reach so on a local level Zagreb took their role. In early days there was TV-series Smogovci, later on Cibona and heritage of Dražen Petrović, from discovering Croatian new-wave music, Mirko Ilić´s comics and illustrations to work of artists such a
