From 2004-2006 he took a break from comics to go work on visual effects in Los Angeles, working on 7 films including Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Surf’s Up, Serenity and Superman Returns at Stan Winston Digital, Rhythm and Hues and Sony Pictures Imageworks. He worked mostly as a texture painter but also did some lighting and effects animation.
In 2006, he returned to comics work with the series The Eternals with Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr., quickly followed by a return to Daredevil, which he’d had to leave when he started working on movies. That same year, he left Santa Monica and moved to Croatia and has lived here ever since. He live’s in a small town called Samobor with his lovely wife Branka, amazing son Liam and his “annoying” cat Jusu.
