COMICS, ANIMATION, FILM
A vivid connection: comics and animation as a context for understanding the work of Nedeljko Dragić and Krešimir Zimonić
Some of the most prominent authors of the Zagreb School of Animation were (or still are) equally active in the field of animation as in the field of caricature and comics. The co-dependency of interrelations of these two fields in terms of aesthetics, mindset and semiotics is being examined on the example of Nedeljko Dragić and Krešimir Zimonić. The history of comic strips and caricature is brought into relation with animated film and with the emergence of modernist animation in particular. Moreover, a special emphasis is placed on the influence of the incursion of specific aesthetic movements, known as comic books schools, on the Croatian comics scene.
