Salonul de BD de la Brașov || The Comic Strips Salon in Brașov

bd-centenar-brasov-4-7-octombrie

Salonul de Bandă Desenată de la Brașov, la care am participat în urmă cu puțin timp, a fost una dintre cele mai plăcute și îmbucurătoare experiențe ale acestui an! Deși nu m-am numărat printre cei cinci câștigători ai acestei ediții, la invitația organizatorilor am participat la eveniment pentru a vorbi despre munca mea. Cu această ocazie am sărbătorit anul Centenarului în spirit artistic și am cunoscut mica noastră comunitate, arta BD care se produce în România și direcția ei de dezvoltare.

Și totul a început cu o minunată călătorie cu trenul de la București la Brașov, într-o zi frumoasă de început de octombrie 🙂

The Comic Strips Salon in Brașov that I attended earlier this month, was one of the most pleasant and heart-warming experiences that I have lived this year! Although I wasn’t chosen among the five winners of this year’s edition, the organizers kindly invited me to attend in order to speak about my work. This was an opportunity for me to celebrate the Centenary together with all the other artists and to meet and connect with them in order to strengthen our little community.

And it all started with a lovely journey by train from Bucharest to Brașov, on a beautiful early October day 🙂

So much to learn from history…

For  a few weeks now I’ve been working on the development phase of a graphic novel based on true historical events (deportation of Romanian families to Siberia after Soviet occupation in WWII) all narrated from the perspective of an old woman who was a little girl back then. I decided to choose this subject after I got completely BLOWN AWAY by her extraordinary story.  As much as young people dislike history and as fed up as some other people are with soviet stereotypes overly used by Hollywood, this story is such a breath of fresh air because it is personal, it is unbiased and it speaks so clearly of the power of the human spirit when  guided by true faith… and of the unequaled moral beauty and strength of our grandfathers’ generation. This is definitely a story that has to, needs to be known …

I’m not sure when my novel is going to be finished… but IT WILL BE so help me God! >.<
