“A Pig’s Story” written by Ion Creanga and published in Romania by the Editura Casa Radio, this book is an unique combination of classical Romanian folk tale and new sequential art storytelling. The package also contains an audio disc with radio theater played by amazing Romanian actors that make the experience even more authentic. I really loved working on this project that gived me the opportunity to illustrate one of stories I often heard during my childhood years. I also felt free to explore and express my self as free and as creative as possible.

"Fly" is a short comic for a collective publication about the desire of freedom. The publication is named "UN1.0N" and it is published in Romania.
The winning 3 pages of the short comic “Cosmic Adventure” that I’ve made for a local event named “Romania 100 in benzi desenate” (Romanian 100 in Comic Pages) organized in 2018 by the History Museum in Brasov to celebrate 100 years of Romanian history.
The comic illustrates the life and adventure of the first Romanian astronaut that went into space in 1981, Dumitru Prunariu. The panels are inspired from articles and memories recounted by Mr. Prunariu himself.
I loved working on this project since this is one of my favorite subjects and because I have so much admiration and respect for people that have the courage to try and change the world like Mr. Dumitru Prunariu.
These are few pages from a graphic novel that, sadly, I never had the chance to finish. This is a story about the relation between an institutionalized boy from Romania and a foreigner, young volunteer, that evolves into a strong friendship in a harsh, corrupt environment. It's a story inspired by true facts; a story that tries to raise awareness about the chaotic situation in these places, and make people realize that they must fight to make a change.
