Remembering "Total", Krakov&Krakov


In the early nineties Milan Jovanovic, Branimir Trosic, Brada Milutinovic has an idea to start a comic magazine called TOTAL, a magazine which could publish complete stories of our comics. "A l' epoque",at that time, as they say it in french, I've worked together with Branimir Trosic, among the others on serial called Krakov & Krakov . Our story was: Operation Gorgonae, it was publish later in Strip Pressing(#7, 2006.) But let me get back to the point. The following cover/illustration was specially done for the cover of Total, and that was the first version, later I made another one which is better. Here is the first version above(for number 2, as far as I remeber), unfortunately Total was never published.


The first episode of Krakov&Krakov was published in 1993 in Politikin Zabavnik, the authors were Milan Jovanovic and Djordje Milosavljevic.
And it was bad time for everything in our country not only comic publishers, artists and so on. Recently, on the 6th International Comics Showroom in Belgrade, in SKC-Happy Gallery, there was a comic market. where at the sales I bought that copy of Politikin Zabavnik, so here is the cover(art Milan Jovanovic, 1993.)

Above-Krakov&Krakov cover(first version of the episode Le téléphone arabe (art Milan Jovanovic, scen. Djordje Milosavljevic).

inking of "Debris"

I've started it, inking stage of Max Debris, but first strip is not very good so I had to redraw it. And then had to start the next comic strip, wasn't satisfied either with it, so redrawn first two strips again.This is the first "off"version...

Je l'ai commencé, en encrant le stade de Max Debris, mais la première bande est pas assez bonne donc j'ai dû le redessiner. Et a ensuite dû commencer la bande dessinée suivante, n'a été satisfait aucun avec cela, ainsi redessiné d'abord deux bandes de nouveau. C'est le premier de la version...

Revolution...


Naslovna, prva naslovnica koju sam radio za casopis Pressing (o kome sam pisao u ranijim postovima...)
Broj nastao nakon previranja i protestnih setnji 1996/97, pa je tako pomalo uz sugestije urednika nastao ovaj crtez, treba da predstavlja pandorinu kutiju promena koje su nas cekale, ili koje smo mi cekali godinama posle...

Til et le champignon du bonheur


Til i pecurka srece strip nastao pod uticajem Moebiusa, koga svi negde kopiraju sto u adolescenciji, sto u ranim dvadesetim, mnogima uzor...konkretno Til je radjen zajedno sa Vladom Vesovicem, tek na osnovu razgovora i jedne ideje/gega...ostalo je moglo da se sazme ili razvuce po zelji...Ovo je ilustracija istoimenog stripa. Dijaloge za strip je mnogo kasnije(2001, a strip je radjen 1993.)napisao Marko Stojanovic, i ta verzija je izasla u prvom broju Strip Pressinga sa par drugacijih kadrova...
Ono sto me takodje vezuje za ovaj crtez su i citanja Kastanedinih knjiga, price o pejotlu isl. Postojao je jos jedan rad neposredno inspirisan Don Huanom, nazalost upropascen je...

boy,man&elephant


Something a little bit older, done among dozen of images for one online illustration catalog called Foto Spring, that web site still exists. But I don't have clear information whether this drawing or any of those illustrations was ever published there.

pripreme....


Pripreme za fazu tusiranja tabli Debrisa. Album nije kompletan, nedostaje da se napise/nacrta/jos deset tabli. U medjuvremenu bi(konacno)trebalo da krenem da radim u tusu olovkiranih circa 42 table. Ovo je tek proba, radjeno na pausu, preko A3 kopija, Faber-Castellovim Pitt artist penom(zvuci profi:))

A sama"inking"faza ce vrlo brzo...
