You can't kill Michael Malloy

I’ve heard of Michael Malloy for the first time in a song by Primus. It’s an instrumental only 25 seconds long off their first album, Frizzle Fry. Some time passed until my best man got interested in the meaning behind the strange title – You can’t kill Michael Malloy. We came across a very interesting story that indeed happened in New York during the Great Depression in the US in the 1930s. The story centered on an Irish immigrant, an ex-fire fighter who at the time was a homeless alcoholic and a regular in a speakeasy. Speakeasies were very popular, as they were makeshift establishments for selling alcohol.  One such place was run by a Tony Marino. The Tony Marino gang was later dubbed the Insurance mob; if you follow the link you can find the complete story. I think it’s worthy of your attention. I was fascinated by the event, but absolutely disgusted by the depth of the dark side of humanity. For a long time I’d been toying with the idea of turning this story into some sort of a strip or illustrated story. This work is dedicated to the sacrifice of Michael Malloy and similar cases. The illustrations were completed in 2013. Unfortunately, I haven’t done the text adaptation. Any help in that respect is more than welcome.

Cheers

30/30 for YAC '17

...and again :) my small drawings for this years YAC event...





Amejzing storis (Amazing stories)


Priča o Amoru/Kupidonu i Faunu prvenstveno... Sama radnja stripa je podredjena glavnim likovima, i  njihovim karakterima, ponašanjima i odnosu prema drugima. Kroz njihove likove obradjene su male svakodnevne osobe i interesovanja, problemi, razmišljanja... Uživajte :) 
Fanzin u papirnom izdanju se pojavio Decembra 2016.




















30/30 for YAC '16

Septembra 2016 sam se prihvatio učešća u akciji 30/30 koju je inicirao Youth Art Collective, Monterey CA. Umetnički centar namenjen edukaciji mladih koji uspešno vode Meg Biddle i Marcia Perry. Sam naziv akcije kaže 30 crteža za 30 dana (za svaki dana po jedan). Ovde su neke od njih a odlika im je prvenstveno brza izrada. Ovakve akcije su odlične za radnu naviku /naročito za lenjivca kao što sam ja :)

Jednostranična poetika

Uhvaćena misao može biti razonoda autoru i prijatno provedeno vreme u crtanju a ponekad može biti shvaćeno i prihvaćeno od strane slučajnog prolaznika ili konzumenta (u ovom slušaju konzument stripa). U svakom slučaju, jednostranična strip forma dobro dođe. Može da zabavi a i ako ne uspe u tome nije oduzela previše vremena.
