Interview with Zdenko Basic, part 1: Scopes of lucidity in illustration and animation

October 19, 2010

For a very long time I’m planning to detain for an interview Zdenko Basic… practically from the beginning of my blogging… Somehow other topics and other people entered into life of this digital creature called Body Pixel…

During this year’s edition of Animafest – World Festival of Animated Film, Zdenko was detained in the quarters of the festival and examined about his crime: illustration and animation.

Dunno when it happened exactly that I got attached with their, as critics like to say, ‘brut’ art aesthetics… I think it’s connected with my passion for printed fanzines and magazines… read more …
