This is the blog for Matt Hollingsworth. I'm from Ojai, California. I've worked in comics for 22 years as a color artist.

This blog will largely be used to show my daily life as I live in Samobor, Croatia and as I travel around the region. Lots and lots of photos! Leave me a comment, will you?

Heh heh. Of course, as soon as I returned home, I became antsy. These things were already in the works, but I'm in the middle of confirming upcoming trips to Belgrade, Dublin and Thailand. Nice. While I have to work like a DOG for the next few months, I can squeeze in a little travel. Then the big Thailand trip will come early next year after I wrap up all of my current jobs except for Daredevil. Of course I will stay on Daredevil, but all of the other gigs are short series and they end. Which frees me up for a full month in Thailand just when winter here is at its worst.


Meanwhile, it really IS good to be home. Just wish I had a little less work at the moment. Still, that money will pay for the traveling and much will also be saved. Retirement account, baby!

We returned home from our extended vacation about eleven days ago now. We immediately settled back into life. The cats are happy we're back, though they got a bit fat while we were gone. They've calmed down and are very content now.

And of course, work is fucked. Too much of it and too much of it is late. Late artists. Oh well. Such is the nature of life. I won't have any days off for a while, I guess. I'll take part of Saturday off at least. I have to go buy a new bike. Mine was stolen while we were on the coast.

Anyway, vacation was good. Nice and relaxing. TONS of time spent on the beach, swimming, reading and relaxing. Read 8 books!

But we're glad to be home in Gajnice.
