Yesterday was the International Anti-Drug day so the Romanian Harm Reduction Network decided to celebrate by publishing a flash back of the war on drugs. Find out more on http://supportdontpunish.org/ and Breaking the taboo. Romania is currently facing an HIV epidemic and an almost complete lack of funding for harm reduction methods.
took almost 2 months in the making, this little experiment. In February and March 2014, I went for some winding walks around the Krems region, during an Artist in Residence program. The project's outcome: several comics in varying formats, 3d figurines (out of wax, wood, porcelain, paper) and linocut prints, all bound together in a limited edition booklet.
the months of February and March drifted by like an early breeze of spring. Was the first time I got the chance to be an artist in residence. Been trying to digest what the experiment has meant for me but I guess I'll only be able to draw the line in a couple of years. Saw a lot of exhibits, made a comic booklet, several figurines and a lot of sketches. Above is a micro-summary. Here's also a list of some creative individuals who shared the experience and their stories with me: ❑ Andrea Kalinová,✈ Monika Vrancová, ☄Miako Klein, ✄ Zsolt Molnar & Adam Dallos, ≡Bonnie Jones≡, ✒ László Darvasi and ✑ Joanna Bator.
Back in November 2013 I started working on a comic based on the Allied Troops' take over of Prague in 1968. Back in November 2013 I started working on a comic based on the Allied Troops' invasion of Prague in 1968.
The comic was interrupted, however the story moved on and developed under the crafty hands of manga master Akira. The comic book will be released this Wednesday, check the event here .

Had an exhibition at Röda, sold a few comics and panicked way too much. All in all 'twas a jolly good time.
