There is an excellent online article that Scott Thill posted at wired.com on July 8 of 2009 that spotlights the then-just-released MARVEL ART OF MARKO DJURDJEVIC. Scott manages to succinctly explain the appeal of Marko's art.
Scott was kind enough to allow me to share a couple of the Djurdjevic quotes from his article here:
“I was a huge traditionalist and digital hater until about four years ago. Now I think about it completely the other way around. The computer is a medium, just like oils, acrylics or crayons. It’s powerful, but without the artistic mind behind it, it doesn’t do anything for you.”
“I am pretty much a Marvel guy, since that was what I grew up with. I barely ever had contact with DC’s characters and I’m not too interested in them today, either. But I also don’t care as much about working on any of the excellent Marvel characters. I am as happy painting any no-name hero as I am painting the Marvel flagships. It really comes down to enjoying the process of the work itself. For me, a comic is soulful when the creators are soulful.”
