How to start a personal art collection

Hey everyone. This is another lifestyle post and the topic is collecting art. Being honest I’ve never thought of it before till few days ago when I’ve found out about invaluable.com (guys who connect collectors and artists). Within the post you will find my thoughts on how I would start a collection myself.

My Ecobricking experience

Hey guys! This post is not very much related to art but it is about something that both bothers me and has a solution. Plastic waste. We now live on Bali and there is so much plastic around… In our neighbourhood locals do not collect plastic garbage for recycling. Instead they burn it right in front of their houses. Check out the post to find out what I’m doing in these circumstances.

Kundalini Meditation Snake Spirit t-shirt design

Hey everyone! Today I’d like to show you my Kundalini Meditation Snake Spirit t-shirt design. Being honest I’ve almost no idea about Kundalini Yoga, but this snake came out of nowhere and I’ve realised that it might have some reference to Kundalini theme.

Psychedelic Yggdrasil the Tree of Life T-shirt Design

Hey guys! Today I’d like to present you my psychedelic vision of the World Tree Yggdrasil (also known as Tree of life). There is a wyrm (dragon) chewing the roots of the tree, a wise eagle on top of the tree and a squirrel Ratatoskr that brings the curses from the dragon to the eagle and back again. What a sophisticated way of communicating!

Trip to Gili Air Burning Island 2016

Several days ago we’ve come back from Burning Island 2016 (do not confuse with Burning Man haha). The party took place on Gili Air – a small island in Indonesia about 2 hours boat trip from Bali. Really cool experience I should say :) Within the post are some pictures my wife took. Enjoy!

Fatal Fart – vegan t-shirt design

This one is dedicated to global warming problems. Specially to the animal food stock which is the main cause of gas emissions. Those of you who have not seen Cowspiracy please take some time to do that. If people don’t want to cut their meat, dairy and eggs intake for the sake of animals they should do it for their own safety.

My Shutterstock portfolio analytics

Hey guys! Several months ago I’ve written a post about my freelance sources income. Today I’m going to take a closer look at microstock part of it. Being honest making illustrations for microstocks was never my primary goal. Within this post I’ll share some of my insights with you

How much time does it take to make an illustration

Hey guys! Today I’d like to talk a bit about my regular workflow. As you know, my primary occupation is making psychedelic illustrations. When a customer comes to me and describes what he or she is looking for I reply with schedule and a budget. The budget differs from one illustration to another and it is usually something between $150 and $300. But the schedule is usually the same ’cause I prefer to set realistic but not very relaxed goals.

New March 2016 Customer

Hey guys! I’m looking for new customers again! Usually new customers come by themselves every one or two months and sometime I’m so busy with my current projects that I can not pick up new ones. This month tends to be less busy so here is the deal: if you’d like me to make one illustration for you for free, please send me an email with all the details to verner.andrei@gmail.com.

JetLag festival psychedelic poster

Jetlag Poster

Hey everyone! Today I’d like to show you the recent psychedelic poster I did for JetLag festival. It’s a yearly festival on the East Coast of the USA. The festival consists of so many artistic activities that the team has to set up 5 stages that are functioning simultaneously. This is basically what I was trying to show with my poster – four smaller floating islands with different colours and shapes representing four smaller stages and the main stage in the middle that has parts of each of the four plus something special of its own.

A short review on Venus Project movie “The Choice is Ours”

Hey guys! A couple of days ago I’ve got an email from Kickstarter telling me that the Venus project’s movie “The Choice is Ours” was released. Being honest I’ve forgotten I was participating in this campaign so it was a pleasant surprise for me. So this post is going to be some sort of a review of the movie.

Psychedelic wall paintings in our new house on Bali

Hey guys! Today I’m going to show you some photos from a house we are now renting on Bali. We are located 25 minutes ride north from Ubud in village with only few expats living around. It is a very silent place comparing to Ubud and to the southern parts of Bali of course. The house itself was built by some Canadian guy and it has very little in common with local architecture. The first floor is an octagonal prism and the second floor is an octagonal pyramid. Almost every wall is painted with many Hindu and one Buddhist themes.

Happy Psychedelic New Year!

Hey guys! I’m sorry I have not updated for a while. Me and my wife have moved to Bali from Montenegro about a month and a half ago. First we’ve been living at our friends place – amazing Santa Mandala with almost no internet and now we’ve moved to a new place – another crazy location, much smaller but still very interesting. I’ll take some pictures next week and I’ll show ’em to you. Dive into the post to see some New Year art!
