I just finished new one-page comic and here are some pictures of whole process. These are two central panels sample in: 1. pencils (photo with bad camera) - 2. almost finished inking (photo wbc :)) - 3. final inking (scanned) - 4. final with digital color and my watercolor scanned-tones.
60 pages long. Written in Bosnian. The comic is about obsessions, weird love, art, comics, vine, cheese, drugs, sex and seagulls!
Short storyline: Alcoholic, fucked up ex-proffesional comic artist returns to his small idyllic hometown drawing portraits for tourists on the street.

This was during the Stripiti Comic Festival in Sarajevo (Umjetnička galerija BiH). We missed the opening (we were on the road, see previous post) but Ella and I saw exhibition few days ago. ComiXconnection is a travel exhibition/explorer of local alternative comics scenes around the Balkans. They travel, collect, exhibit. Everything active right now in Balkans indie/alternative comics (press, festivals, artists) is on this exhibition. Don't miss it in your town!
Find more about project here.
Big thanks to Beate from ComiXconnection and Filip and Emir from Stripiti festival who made this possible.
