Drawings of faces by Kanzaki Junji

In the past, I bought quite a few original drawings of manga pages. Somehow, I bought more of the originals of Ai to Fukushuu no Banka (Eternal song of love and revenge) Crime Yakuza story drawn by Kanzaki Junji.

Partly, I like how he draws faces, giving them so much space on the pages, and in the same time, leaving the faces quite empty but still effective. 

Here, here and here are the links to the posts of my previous acquisitions.

"10th Festival Miroslav Krleža" poster and billboard design

Miroslav Krleža (1893-1981) is the most celebrated Croatian writer. For the 10th Festival Miroslav Krleža, in Zagreb, I was asked to create a poster and billboard design.

I decided to draw Miroslav Krleža’s profile wearing his very characteristic hat. Because one of his most famous novels is titled Zastave (The Flags) I made his profile out of all incarnations of Croatian flags during his lifetime.
