Priester - 1 FEBRUARY 2011 ABOUT THE ARTIST My name is Vjekoslav Ranec. I live and work in Zagreb, Croatia. I was born on 28 January 1981. I completed Business High School in 1999. At that time I had never formally studied art,  but drawing and building scale models were my favorite hobbies. After high school, I still did not know what I was going to do with my life. So I enrolled at the Faculty (College) of Graphic Science at the University of Zagreb. I graduated last year. Today I work as an Illustrator, Graphic Designer, Graphic Editor, and Project Manager. I have used Xara from when it was Corel Xara (it was installed on my first computer, which my father bought for me (used) when I was just a child). That was probably somewhere in the mid 90s. I found Xara a very useful tool many years later—before The Faculty of Graphic Science—when I had taken a few graphic design classes in a small school where I worked later for some time. The school had Xara on a few computers. I have been using Xara X since that time. I have finally upgraded to Xara Designer Pro 6 and I am very excited to try out the new version.
