Silence Wanderers Graphic Novel intro

Silence Wanderers Graphic novel p00_str13-14

It was ten years ago when I first started drafting ideas for the Silence Wanderers graphic novel story. Initially I wanted to make a movie, so by 2005. I wrote a script and at that point I realized how much resources that kind of production would require: props, men, costumes and, of course, a big budget! So I started to consider a second option, an animated movie production. I did some quick calculations. Trilogy, at least 6 hours long, approximately 21 600 seconds, 260 000 frames in A2 animated standard! You see why that idea didn’t work out either.
And then it finally hit me: graphic novel is solution to my problems! It took me 18 months to illustrate 80 pages for the 1st graphic novel. The very same graphic novel was my final art project as I graduated from Academy of Fine Arts. Sorry, the pages are in Croatian language:
