Illustrator of the Week: Marko Djurdjevic and Adi Granov

June 16, 2010

Since I missed last week, this week’s posting will feature two artists of similar style. The last posting in this series looked at Yoshitaka Amano, an artist who gained a fair amount of his notoriety for concept art. The next two artists also began as concept artists. They specialize in digital medium, using computer programs and tablets to produce their work. I’m not the biggest fan of digitally produced art but these two artists are masters of their craft and they deserve recognition for their talent.

This week’s artists/illustrators are Marko Djurdjevic and Adi Granov

Marko Djurdjevic – A Brief Bio

Marko Djurdjevic is a German national producing illustrations primarily for Marvel. Marko is completely self-taught and began work as a professional illustrator when he was 17. As a child he was unaware that artists used photo-referencing to produce work and assumed they worked only from their imagination. Because of this assumption, he taught himself to draw without the use of photo-referencing. Early in his career he posted his artwork on an online art community called conceptart.org. Here he gained recognition and this eventually led to his success as an artist.

Marko produces all of his work from his imagination. He primarily works with a computer and tablet because it is an easy way to speed up the process.
