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?

I recently started collecting foreign currency. There's an antique market here on Sundays and I go there once in a while and buy stuff from a guy there who has tons of money from all over. No, I have not visited all of these places. I like the art on them and the view into the culture of where they come from. It's fascinating to me.

Foreign Currency

I collect money too! Usually only from where I've been, but I've got some from Italy, Sweden & Norway from friends. I have more coins than paper, though. I was so pissed when the Euro started because it ruined this really cool part of all these cultures. I'm glad I got to Germany and France in time.

I've got a couple Russian coins, but no paper... If you see any more, would you be able to get some for me? I'll pay for it, of course!!! I love Russian things...mainly because I can read it! :-P

Yeah, sure. I'll watch for Russian money for you.
