My e-mail is: and the homepage is:

What type of tools or media do you use?

Anything that'll do the job. If I'm about to make some mature, high-detailed concepts, I'll probably go with pencil on paper. That way, I can achieve the greatest amount of detail. But if I need to conceptualise various versions of the same character, I'll probably go all digital. For Moodboards or illustrations, I always go digital, from beginning to end.

Where is the place you would like to work or be an Intern if you had a choice?

I guess I found it: I'm hired at NC Soft Europe in Brighton ( UK ) as Senior Concept Designer.

Who do you think are the top character designers out there?

Simon Bisley, no doubt. None can combine caricature and violence like him. And those wonderfull colors, yami... Besides Biz, definitely James Hewlet. I mean, the man is a legend. Tank Girl, Gorillaz... Beat that.

What are some of your favorite character designs which you have seen?

Teletubbies. Really. It's a design that was / is adored by kids all around the globe. And that means something. Besides that, I dig every single sketch made by Calum Alexander Watt, known as "Salaryman".
And even though it's not really a humanoid character, the "EVE02" from Neon Genesis Evangelion makes my heart go bonga-wonga.

What is your most favorite subject to draw? And why?

I guess it would be the Post-Apocalypse. Ever since I left my bosnian homelands in fire and ashes, I feel like a piece of a post-apocalyptic society myself. So that could be an aspect of my personality that comes through in my designs.

What inspired you to become an Artist?

Since I grew up in a artistic family, it didn't appeal to me at all until I went to art school in Sarajewo. Then, all of a sudden, it just came over me and I drew 12 hours a day. Then, the war came and I had a break of about ten years. I became a visual effects artist and film director after a while. But after drawing a storyboard for one of my videos, flames turned on. I then discovered with it's amazing designers and decided to let all go and get back to drawing and painting. That was about two years ago. Now I'm drawing for one of the biggest video game companies in the world.

What are some of your favorite website links that would be relevant to this Blog?

Needless to say, it's surely Specially the "Sketchbook" section; scary! There are also CG Channel and CG Society as the main bookmarks for anyone involved in this business.
