The Festival of Comics from Poznań, 2019

This year I had the honor of being invited by the Romanian Cultural Institute from Warsaw, along with some of my talented Romanian colleagues to exhibit my work and take part in the Comic Festival “Free Comic Book Day” of Poznań. The artist community from Poznań was amazing, making us feel so welcome and comfortable, introducing us in their culture and local events. Special thanks to Justyna Cichońska for showing us the city and all the interesting stories about Poznań and Poland history and traditions. And also, thanks a lot for all the efforts, to Aleksander Gniot and the team. And of course, lots of thanks to the Romanian Cultural Institute from Warsaw, since it really was an amazing experience for me and my colleagues and friends, Adrian Barbu and Gabriel Rusu.

Romania 100 in Benzi Desenate

In October last year (2018) a new comic manifestation started happening in Brasov. While Romania was celebrating 100 years of history in classical ways, the Brasov History Museum decided to come with a different approach to this event by organizing a contest, a historical comic illustrated contest. Romanian comic artists allover Romania were very happy to illustrate historical events, me included.

So, because I’m fascinated with the stars, the Universe, astronauts and all the new and amazing things that get discovered related to our environment and surroundings, , I’ve chosen the subject of “Dumitru Prunariu, the first Romanian astronaut that went in to space”. Turned out this was such an inspiring subject for me and made my work so easy and so fun.

I found out with joy that I’m one of the winners of this contest.

This is throw back… Saturday? Yeah, I think so.
In 2014 I’ve had the big oportunity to attend Comic Con NY, one of the biggest of his sort, with the intention to lounch my first graphic novel “Mishka and the Sea Devil”. And that’s what we did, along with Action Lab Ent and Romanian Cultural Institute that made my experience even more unforgettable.

So, here are some sweet memories:

Mishka and the Sea Devil

My first publication is "Mishka and the Sea Devil" a graphic novel full of adventures that was published by Action Lab Ent. and released at Comic Con NY, at 15th of October, 2014.  My first project is an unique experiment that explores 11 different graphic styles. This idea came up at one point in the development of the book and kept me motivated and fresh during almost 6 years of exploration and hard work in which Mishka (the main character of the book) continued evolving and growing becoming stronger and ready to fight the Sea Devil!
