"My Place Under the Sun" Logo

The organization Moje mjesto pod suncem (My Place Under the Sun) originated in Rijeka, Croatia. Their program's primary goal is to provide children below the poverty line with activities that will enable them to grow and develop based on their abilities rather than on the severe social context surrounding them. They offer these kids quality extra-institutional education in the hope that it will boost their self-esteem and self-reflection, and help them realize their full potential.

When I was asked to volunteer my services and create a logo for My Place Under the Sun, I decided to create something child friendly and also something empowering, thats why I created this recognizable image of child as super hero.

Anti-Coronavirus posters

Today on 20th street between 5th and 6th avenues, I was surprised to see, still untouched, the Anti-Coronavirus poster posters I designed and posted more than 6 months ago.

I was one of the artists invited by Poster House and Print magazine to do Anti-Coronavirus poster.

NYC Street Version of the Anti-Coronavirus poster

That was enough for me I wanted the poster/message to appear on less official ad spaces and that way could get attention of more of the community in NYC. I paid to print and distribute poster on Manhattan Bronx and Queens.You will see in the link even David Byrne put my poster on his instagram with a comment.

Mighty Thor

Some time ago, I came across the original comics page from Mighty Thor by John Buscema from 1979. Despite the relatively low price, I didn’t buy it. There was nothing special or unique on that page for me.

But recently, I came across the original sketch of that same page, and whatever the finished page didn’t have, fluidity, dynamic, energy, this sketch had it. And now, this one is mine.

Joe Kubert "Winnie Winkle" Part 2


I just acquired another Joe Kubert & the Joe Kubert School Winnie Winkle daily original strip from 1981.
Joe Kubert and his influential school of comics artistry took charge of the pioneering soap-opera feature Winnie Winkle to fulfill an objective for "my students [to] gain experience and make a couple of bucks", as Kubert told The Comics Journal in 1994, adding this: "I suddenly found myself doing the whole strip by myself. So I just dropped it."
I acquired this comic exclusively because of the last frame, it is so Joe Kubert.
