I am a self-taught artist, designer and illustrator from Croatia. My work includes traditional and digital drawing and painting, photo editing, graphic and web design, jewelry design, mask making and other crafts.

I’ve been professionally working as a web designer for over 9 years. I’m also freelancing as a book illustrator, and have received awards for my illustration work.
I write tutorials and ebooks, teach creative workshops and organize events.

Month Of Fairies - 30 day art challenge by nelchee
Month Of Fairies - 30 day art challenge
For the entire month of November I've been drawing a fairy a day and posting it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #MonthOfFairies.
It coincided with the "Art Every Day Month" challenge, which I totally didn't plan, but it was a nice coincidence.

Here is an overview of all 30 sketches & digital pieces I did.
Most of them are done in traditional techniques (watercolor, ballpoint pen, ink, colored pencils, gouache, pastels, paper cutting), and a few pieces are digital.

A larger view of a couple of works is available here:

Growing Pains

:star: T-shirts, bags & more! :star:



Personal photography, watercolor, Adobe Photoshop + digital painting with Wacom Intuos3

Another work from my November "Month Of Fairies" challenge. I got the idea months before, and I took this opportunity to finally create it.

Metamorphosis is a recurring theme in my work.

I've been through a lot of growing pains on my own in the past year, especially in regards to starting my own business and shifting things around how I want to live.

I did this in one afternoon, but I want to keep working on it and refine some details before I put it in my portfolio.
Critique welcome!

Fairy Queen by nelchee
Fairy Queen

Watercolor on 23x30cm watercolor paper

The Fairy Queen appeared for me on day 1 of my "Month of Fairies" challenge.

I wanted to create something simple, but when the Queen came, I had no choice but to try my best to portray her the way I saw her in my mind.

It's probably not an accident that the two trees surround her in a similar way to the two columns on the Tarot card of The High Priestess.

Rikon 2014 poster by nelchee
Rikon 2014 poster
Most of you here know me as an artist (which is my passion), but I'm working as a freelance graphic designer & illustrator :)
For the past few months I was only doing commission work, and I wanted to share bits of my "day job" with you.
Who knows, maybe you'll want to hire me, or recommend me to your friends! :lol:

Rikon is a Sci-Fi, fantasy & horror convention held annually in Rijeka, Croatia since 1997.

The illustration is a photoshopped photo of the city of Rijeka (photographed by me), and I added a bunch of greenery and futuristic architecture to project what Rijeka might look like in 200 years.

I handled the entire visual identity and promotion for this event, including illustration, graphic design of posters and fliers,  web design, classic PR and social media.
