Irena Jukić-Pranjić


*1973 in Bjelovar/Croatia. Studied at the Art Academy and Zagreb University (Art History). Teacher and mem­ber of the Croatian Society for Visual Arts. As a preschool­er she was fas­ci­nat­ed by the Tom & Jerry com­ic strip. In her comics, the sto­ries often present stereo­typ­i­cal char­ac­ters, yet take new, unex­pect­ed twists. She illus­trates children’s mag­a­zines. In 2010 she edit­ed the dis­tin­guished anthol­o­gy Ženski strip na Balkanu (Balkan Women in Comics). She lives in Bjelovar.
