Ivan Sivak & Woody

I was born in 1985 in Zagreb, Croatia. In 2004 after graduating from High school of Applied Arts, Graphics department, I attended Academy of Fine Arts also in Zagreb. I studied on department of Animated film and New Media. In 2011 I graduated as an author of graphic novel “Silence Wanderers”, under mentor ship of late prof. Ivan Ladislav Galeta, of which I am honored to say so. Since 2013 I am a member of Croatian Association of Artists.

Professionally I am an illustrator, concept artist and a 2D animator, but because of my curious nature I have also gained experience as a comics artist, graphic designer, concept artist, caricaturist and a painter. Besides that, don’t be too surprised if you hear my name in unexpected places because as I said, I am a wanderer and I would need more than 400 years of this life to dive into everything that I am interested in. To get a glimpse on what I do, please visit my portfolio, or read my web comic Silence Wanderers. Anyways, I am happy that you are here and I wish you a pleasant stay. ~ Ivan
