“Average Vacation” is a collection of my last year Asia/Mediterranean vacations memories, averaged and simplified. While I mostly inspired there by nature and creatures, the inner meanings are about love, karma, recursion, individualism etc.

MISC is a small series of self-initiated projects started as a way of sharing more unfinished ideas. I wanted to focus on coherently bringing together images from personal research, unfinished pieces and occasional old pitch material and trying to curate them towards a certain direction. Many of the images mirror current interests that span a wide range of fields including strong referencing of still-life photography, set design, fashion objects and art directed florals. I’d say no two images are the same or share the same process ( which is kind of the point), as the imagery can either start life as a highly involved 3D rendering or a very basic 3D setup, with high amounts of retouch involved to get the image to feel a certain way. Be sure to check out the MISC projects as well as others on my portfolio page, thanks!

Smokey Slicing Liquid Keyframes
This piece is a personal exploration aiming to combine different motion design disciplines into one looping video. Photoreal 3D materials, liquid and smoke simulations, 2D graphics and frame by frame hand-drawn effects are integrated through snappy animation and free-flowing transitions.
The tools used are Maxon Cinema 4D, Jawset Turbulence FD, Real Flow, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects. The audio design is produced from hand-picked sound effects and drumploops.

I wanted to share an emotion – the feeling of an incredible fear of a blank page and the eternal struggle with procrastination. We all face this problem and I wanted to explore it from my unique perspective.
We don’t notice the fight going on inside the person trying to come up with something. Well, he is sitting or standing, staring at one point like a psychopath. In popular culture, a thinking person is constantly running around the room. He moves stuff, waves his hands, makes quick notes on paper. It’s pretty boring to look at a glassy-eyed body sitting in the corner of a room, but that’s how it works in real life. The most exciting ideas come up in silence. So I decided to act as a guide to the inner world of people that try to come up with an idea. It took me 45 seconds.
