When Novi Kvadrat stopped, Ninoslav Kunc started a solo career as a free-lance artist. He published many comics in children's, student and adult magazines. Comics he created (both script and artwork) for Student paper were mostly political or erotic, with a sharp critical edge, so later on he was called "the father of croatian underground" (some comics were a bit "Crumbish").

One of his masterpieces is a comic called 'Sjena' (Mr. Shadow) that was published in the form of comic strips in various papers and magazines over a period of 20 years. Mostly humorous, 'Sjena' was a sort of experiment between comic and "anti-comic" work, playing even with the structure of comic strip (often destroying the elements of his own media).
