Ivica Stevanovic is an artist from Serbia. All I can say is that he's a mad genius of the surreal....and I like it. I like it a lot. In this gallery, we'll tour his unusual world.

In addition to his amazing images in graphic novels, he has also worked on numerous chiildren's books as well as covers for various publishers. I first came across his amazing images while working on the Steampunk Reloaded anthology with my husband, Jeff VanderMeer. I am lucky enough to be married to a man who shares my artistic aesthetic. Jeff is the one who introduced me to Ivica's work.

This is Babylon City. Stevanovic uses images from famous paintings and makes them his own. A similar technique used by Scott Eagle who I profiled over the holidays.

Days of the Beast - another from Graphocalypse. It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland... and other stuff. A bit of Frida Kahlo in there, too. Creepy because I feel like I know that guy with the crooked teeth (I think I went to high school with him...)
