Rus - short story


Rus's short graphic novel, Limited Shelf Life (Omejen rok trajanja), is inspired by the eponymous novel by Vinko Möderndorfer. He uses thick brushstrokes, innovative framing, daring perspective and a masterly use of black-and-white contrasts which further enhance the already morbid, suicidal atmosphere. This provides a naturalistic rendition of the narrative and demonstrates his draughtsmanship. His lightly stylised figures always follow correct proportions, in total harmony with the contrasting architectural background which carries the same importance as the protagonists themselves. The latter is at times merely crudely suggested, with a complex brush stroke or as a black silhouette - whatever is required by the composition of the page. (Iztok Sitar, comics author, historian and critic)
