EVS is coming to end.

2nd January, end of my EVS project, is unstoppably coming. Some melancholic feeling of ending I had already two months ago during opening of exhibiton TU-BITI. This exhibition was about reflection of my stay in Slovenia. Therefore, it was done from perspective of action that is already finished and now is just reflected - thirty photographs that captured my stay in Maribor and travelling across whole country. Fortunately, this recapitulation was a little bit too early. My EVS was prolonged for one more month so there were still another two months. So, quite a lot of time. And moreover, these last last two months were so busy (in good sense) that I didn't have any time for melancholic feelings anymore.

Full of optimism and enthusiasm, we set in our Pizda group end of November as date of publishing new Pizda, number 4. Of course, after while it was totally obvious that meet this deadline will be impossible for us. Result: just one week for drawing illustrations. Moreover, creativity crisis came in this worst time. How to draw refugee crisis and don't be similar to all those previous caricatures that had been already drawn by someone else? How to draw satirical joke about postmodern nihilism if I am postmodern nihilist a little bit too? Fortunately, some muse finally came. Therefore, some my pictures in new Pizda! 4 you can find. (A little bit of promotion: We printed 200 copies of them so there are still some in Infopeka. I recommend to pick one. It's inspirational reading).

As New Year is coming, my next big task for this time was making calendar for upcoming year. But this shouldn't be any ordinary calendar. This calendar is for ZIZ, theatre group that is fascinated by breasts. Therefore, demanding mission was waiting foor me. 10 people and 12 different poses for each month. That means, 120 photographs of breasts. Really strange EVS experience :-)

Everything is finished now. Celebration of new Pizda successfully happened. Photos for ZIZ calendar are taken and calendar itself is printed in printing office right now. Therefore, now I can just enjoy a few last days. Meeting with friends, visiting favourite places like Piramida, eating delicious čevapčiči in Baščaršija, ...
