Check out the funded project and learn more about the book:
Born in Bulgaria in 1972, Kalvachev moved to the US in his 20s to begin a career in the entertainment industry that led him to work on almost every major children IP from Micky Mouse Clubhouse and Blue’s Clues, to Spiderman and The Incredibles.
With more than 20 years of experience, Kalvachev considers himself a “visual storyteller.” His career has taken him across the globe and extended his range from art production, graphic novel creator, graphic designer, UIX designer, chief creative officer and freelancer with notable clients such as Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, DC Comics, Hasbro, Nickelodeon and many more.
Kalvachev is the recipient of the Best Downloadable Game of the Year Award, several Betsy Awards (for education products), the Bologna Children’s Game Award and more. He was also nominated for two Eisner awards for his cover and color work on the comic book series Blue Estate. He has had several solo exhibitions and taken part of many group shows around the world.
Viktor Kalvachev is mostly known for his graphic novels PHERONE and Blue Estate, as well as his work on comic book titles such as Batman Beyond, Men of War, B.P.R.D. and DMZ. His latest art book INSPIRE was successfully funded through Kickstarter and made its debut at SDCC 2018.
Kalvachev has his M.F.A. degree from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Some artwork may be paid for in installments. Please for details.
