Last week I was doing a new little project a photo illustration. As I was finished with hate towards 2020. I tried to make something new. I had an idea long ago, to make illustration on a photo. Fist one that I’ve made was the one I’ve put in “About me” – where Bo and Om are cleaning my glasses. I’ve continued to make more photo illustrations.
Inspiration was everyday life and play. But it didn’t kick as I’ve expected. I think this series of illustration are not communicating to people as well as for example Advent ones. Maybe photo illustration is harder than it seams. What do you think?
I am making one more series right now, with a cohesive theme and maybe it will be better than first one. We’ll see. ‘Til than, click here to see photo illustrations. 🙂
After I finished illustration workshops, I went to stop motion workshop.
Stop motion animation workshop was so fun and difficult. People think stop motion animation is easy, animation in general is all about good plan, organization, small details and effects. As workshop went on, I’ve learned so much.. but lack of practice made me eager to work harder. Our teacher Luka Vucić, bless him, showed his work, all props and puppets, tips and tricks. So we got the idea what to make for our final work.
In the end of workshop I’ve made stop motion animation about how God made Earth. Idea was that God sneezed and his snot hit the planet.. and voila Earth was made.

Few years back I’ve went to art workshops at Atelje na br.1. I’ve started with illustration workshop. It lasted for two month, we made illustrations in every possible media, and had freedom to make whatever we wanted. In the end of workshop we had to make our final work.
I had these two characters Eyed girl and Hairy potato and wanted to make a scene. Teacher gave me an idea to make diorama or space to look like theatre. So I’ve decided to make diorama in a shoebox. To make it a bit interesting I’ve put small led lamp inside. 🙂
I went to other workshops and made Ludo game and coloring book for kids and parents as my final work. It was a lot of fun making small personal projects. I’ve learned how to plan and make projects to last and have a story. 🙂

In the end of March earthquake shook things up in Zagreb, made a mess. Buildings in center of Zagreb were damaged quite badly and for most people homes and security was gone in a heartbeat. No need to go in full details about the feelings and atmosphere in minds of all of us who experience that day.
It was April, pandemic was still like alien invasion, I was behind closed doors still scared. In that time I was finished with series of Quarantine illustrations and trying to find new project to make time bearable till summer.
My dear friends liked illustrations of veggies and fruit and some old ones I have showed them, asked me to make them printed T-shirts. They choose illustrations and I started to convert them to digital form. After few weeks I’ve made everything prepared for print.
I found nice print studio that have good quality T-shirts and made arrangements. So in a month I have finished project T-shirts and survived another month in this new (dis)order. 🙂
