Stripnjak on ComiXconnection group exhibition (Sarajevo, BiH)

This was during the Stripiti Comic Festival in Sarajevo (Umjetnička galerija BiH). We missed the opening (we were on the road, see previous post) but Ella and I saw exhibition few days ago. ComiXconnection is a travel exhibition/explorer of local alternative comics scenes around the Balkans. They travel, collect, exhibit. Everything active right now in Balkans indie/alternative comics (press, festivals, artists) is on this exhibition. Don't miss it in your town!
Find more about project here.
Big thanks to Beate from ComiXconnection and Filip and Emir from Stripiti festival who made this possible.

Ella and I took some photos:

Each artist had these aluminum "about me" tablets.
Hmmm... my first comics exhibition.

I had wonderful time at this event. I spoke about Stripnjak Comics releases, comics in general and some craziness.

Mladen Oljaca - Illustrations (Modesty Comics 2015)

"If the illustration is without spirit, which is given by the author, it remains merely just to do the job, mechanically transferring words into lines and shapes, filling the gaps on the page. The author of this book of illustrations is certainly not someone who just does the job."
(Ilija Bakić,writer, from the introduction of this book)

Available to buy as an e-book (PDF) in ENGLISH/Serbian.
