Alem Ćurin (1953) studied graphic arts at the Academy of Fine Arts, but he abandoned his studies to pursue comic art. Having experienced disappointment due to failure in commercial comics, because of which he had given up education, he turned to painting and sculpture, but never completely abandoned comics. In 1980s his comic strips were occasionally published in youth magazines. In 1991 he became a designer in the Croatian National Theatre in Split. At the same time he started working for Profile, a feuilleton to Nedjeljna Dalmacija, as illustrator and art director. Between 1993 and 2008 he worked as illustrator for Feral Tribune. He is a co-founder or the culture newspaper Torpedo and co-author of Utorkaške zbirke kratkih priča. He received a Grand-prix at Belgrade International Comics Festival 2008.
