Life is sometimes all about simple things and complicated humans. We all have twists and turns in life, ups and downs. I had my parents apartment repaired after earthquake and when you start with that kind of project it always ends up with “There is more work that has to be done“. And when that line came up I wasn’t sure my budget will survive. But it did 🙂 Bit of luck is all you need to survive.
In that time I got short on photos to make illustrations on, so I went back to make new illustrations about every day situations. Simple white background with Bo and Om and the third purple monster with no name (hopefully soon I’ll find him a name..)
These series of illustrations I’ll hold on to for a while, they are relatable and funny and I like them. Hope you find them fun too.. 🙂

This week was about monsters and friends. Friends that we are and monsters we held inside. Fear is a main obstacle, play is making most of your talent.
I’ve made series of Bo and Om with some new monsters, on photos of Croatian villages in Istria, Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Pelješac… places I’ve been last few years. I wanted to illustrate sequence of my childhood. Remember marbles? Pretend to be builder… or learning how to ride a bike. No matter where you are being a kid is about discovering world around you and developing skills.
Maybe it would be fun to make Bo and Om travel the world, like a Amelie’s garden gnome.. 🙂

It was 3 days after Christmas, earthquake again. It was like Earth farted, loudly, making a point that we are in a episode of Twilight zone. Point made, bones stiff, blood frozen, I’ve made illustration of Bo and Om waked up by earthquake.
It was an impact that brought up PTSP from March, but we all hoped that was it.. It’s last of this 2020. nightmare/shitty horror movie. Day after was massive, long, noisy, ugly earthquake near Petrinja. Christmas joy died. People lost their homes, loved ones.. Horror.
But one thing was, still is, shining in the moments of darkness, human hearts. Croatians united quickly, gave their homes to ones in need, gave help in every way imaginable.
Grinch was on steroids but Bo and Om had their way to strike back. So they did, they smashed and destroy 2020. like 2020. destroyed all the joy, freedom and security.. 🙂

As time of Christmas was close I’ve made daily illustrations. We all have our idea of Christmas spirit and how that time of year is special, so Bo and Om were my idea of Christmas spirit. Every week Bo and Om made something in advent tradition.
Every illustration was inspired by random quotes, songs and daily life in winter. Bo and Om were my extension to share magic that was kidnapped by pandemic. As numbers of ill and dead went up, my illustrations went more colorful. 🙂
