| WHY LADYBIRDS EAT PEOPLE?! |


"WHY LADYBIRDS EAT PEOPLE?!" is complex illustrated book/ graphic novel strongly focused on figurative narration, 
strongly inspire by human race  and our lives - passions, sins, habits, emotions, situations, states of soul and mind. 
It reveals to the viewer many weird characters that crawled out of dark corners of daily life. I'ts bizzarre and grotesque 
in a way but on the other side very metaphorical and symbolical with large dose of naked truth involved. I tried to find the balance between irony and criticism, keeping whole thing on surreal and narrative ground, where major part of characters simply reflect us – modern society in all its shapes and forms. Yet the only place where we are truly revealed as who we are is from the inside.

 If you examine this work closely, you might come to the realization that all the creatures are really kind of self portraits, set in fantastical landscapes of an imaginary world which echoes its own…a bitter, yet sweetly coated prescription for modern life.” 
This book was created during 2 years of my (MFA studies) Master project on Academy of Arts Novi Sad/ department of graphic design 
and illustration. It consists of more then 100 double pages fully illustrated. 

Art direction, character design, lllustrations, typography, concept, and graphic design fully created by Valentina Brostean.
Written by Zeljko Katanic.
