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.
