With such a fun and lively repertoire, we thought you might like to know a little bit more about this very talented self-taught illustrator.
I am from Belgrade, Serbia. Ever since I was a kid I felt a drive to draw. I was a typical boy, loved cowboys and pirates, knights, cars and spaceships. My imagination was running wild and I had to put it all on paper.
I never studied for an illustrator – I graduated as a historian – but the need to create prevailed and I became a professional Illustrator.
Now I spend time drawing and traveling the world – if I am not at my computer, drawing, you can find me running in the woods or hiking in the mountains – my passions are art and nature.
