Drazen began his illustration career when his 7th grade teacher asked him to draw posters of the Norse legends Thor and Loki for his classroom. In exchange, Drazen received a book on aliens and one by Edgar Allen Poe. From there, he created posters and album covers for local bands which led to other illustration assignments on videos, magazines, and TV commercials. Drazen jumped into the world of television animation and has since helped to develop, design, and storyboard numerous successful cartoons including The Neverending Story, Rupert the Bear, Franklin the Turtle, and George Shrinks, among many others.
Drazen Kozjan lives in Ontario, Ontario with his family, including Igor the cat, and Monty the rabbit. For more information, please visit http://www.drazenkozjan.com/
