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.

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.

"Rikon" is a sci-fi and fantasy convention held annually in Rijeka, Croatia. The first convention was held back in 1997.
For all these years Rikon didn't have a logo, nor any kind of branding strategy in place.
I designed a logo and the entire branding for this event.

You can see my process from start to finish on my blog!

Mjesec fantastike (translation: Fantasy month) is a month-long festival dedicated to fantasy, science fiction, science and art. Some events in the program are aimed at school-aged children, while others are mainly for young adults.

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

Hello, Mother by nelchee
Hello, Mother
Acrylic on canvas, 30x40cm

I normally don't write explanations of my paintings, because I want to allow the viewers to form their own impressions, deep from their own soul and consciousness, not contaminated by my intentions.

But I know this painting will be controversial, so I feel the need to address this.

I don't view motherhood as something romantic and noble. I view motherhood as hard, thankless work, both physically and emotionally.
Motherhood is bound to cause some kind of disappointment sooner or later, especially when you realize that someone you gave life to, and tried so hard to raise as you thought was best, grew up into precisely the kind of person you wanted them not to be.

(to continue reading my short essay about this painting, visit my website)

Thank you for watching!
