So idk how much you know about Yugoslavia (or my followers know), so i’ll try and give it as much context as possible. Like I said both sides of my family are from former Yugoslavia.
So Yugoslavia was a country since about the 1920′s all the way until it’s dissolution in the 1990′s. A majority of the time, the president of the country was Tito, and once he died more tensions flared up until the dissolution of the country.
This is a pretty good map of present-day Yugoslavia. Essentially the country broke up into Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Montenegro & Kosovo. But all these present-day countries have their own ethnicities, like Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks/Muslims(wiki is telling me muslims), Slovens, Macedonians, Montenegrins, etc. This is important because during Yugoslavia these ethnic groups would often live in other regions(like Serbs living in Bosnia).
It’s also important to distinguish because nowadays there are still some variety of ethnicity in the countries (like Serbs in Croatia). Also some present-day sports players will go back and represent the country of their parents(Asmir Begović & Seed Kolasniac are good examples), even if born in say what is present-day Serbia, because their a Croat, will represent Croatia etc.
Both of my parents are originally from Bosnia, but Bosnia had a lot of an ethnic mist-mash and the effects are still present today.
So due to a lot of Serbs living in a region of Bosnia, there is a region basically “for them”(not really but you see what I mean). The part in pink is called Republika Srpska, which would translate to “Serbian Republic”, in this region, there are a lot more Serbs than the rest of the country and less Mosques than the rest of the country.
My parents are both Bosnian Serbs and they grew up in the Blue region, where theres a bit more ethnic diversity(at least today). Of course, once the war started, well they started moving around, my mom lived in a sea-side city in Montenegro but eventually they both were in Serbia. A year before I was born, my parents both left Yugoslavia as refugees and came to Canada where I am born & raised.
The Eleventh Hour so far has my favorite storytelling from Griffin! So here’s a pseudo-movie poster ehuehueue
Had to do another illustration for our Fantasy Illust class and our prof gave me the go signal to draw TAZ again as long as I found good face refs for them. B^) I based Magnus, Taako and Merle on John Spainhour, Paul Boche, and Brian Cox respectively!

You’re sitting in the theatre. Everything is perfect. It’s accurate, it’s visually stunning, everyone is on point. It’s a perfect adaption. The title flies on screen.
