Jesse is a friend of mine. Also a talented cartoonist and puppeteer. Also a great guy. This is my attempt to make a portrait of him. And he will probably make his attempt to kill me because of that :)

Again, an old comic strip. The original version was made back in 1997, and it looked crappy. This slightly less crappy version is a remake from almost five years ago. The color is brand new. It's a funny story... I still like it.
Click on the picture to see the original version in Croatian, or click HERE to read the comic in English.
The inevitable questions: who are these two people? Are they real? Was that a real-life incident that actually happened? Can anybody sell me a functional teleportation system in good condition? What does the mysterious acronym BZB means? You'll find out one day. Good night...

Andy Warhol once said: "in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes". And I say, 5 minutes is enough for some people. On the following pages, I'll show you the whole lifetime of my main hero, including his obligatory 5 minutes of fame.
This story won the second prize on the annual Croatian comics-fest CRŠ (one of my three prizes on this festival so far - a record of some kind). Some people think it's my best comic ever... maybe it is, but I'd prefer to think that best is yet to come. I made it very quickly because of the tight deadline, so it took me only 10 days to finish it. Because of that, there are some rough spots and drawing mistakes that are making me bristle when I read it now. Still, it came out pretty well, under the circumstances.
Here is the original in Croatian, and don't be afraid to check it out even if you don't understand the language. Maybe I'll upload the English version next week, if I manage to successfully resolve few problems in translation. Some story elements and jokes will be inevitably lost in another language, unfortunately.
People find this story either incredibly depressing or hilarious... it depends on whose side you're on. And if you loved this one, don't miss my other suicidal comic strip. Perhaps I need to make another one, and have a real suicide trilogy in my opus :) But I don't like to draw depressing stuff (though I like to read it sometimes)...

Well, another friend is celebrating birthday!
Kali Fontecchio is a girl of many talents. She's a cartoonist, painter, photographer, movie director, singer, guitarist, actress, a swordfighter... the list is infinite. She's currently studying the dangerous ancient secrets of the rubber-hose animation.
Kali is funny and gifted, take a look at her blog and don't forget to wish her a Happy Birthday, because she's having sixty... I beg your pardon, twenty-two years today.
Here's my B-day present...
