Picture stories for everyone


7th day of Festival was dedicated to one of the most interesting forms of art - comics. Two comics-artists and organizers of KomMissiya Festival - Khikhus and Nastya Galashina - were talking about their project "Respect", which bring into the picture problems of racial, ethnic and sex discrimination and other social problems.
Participants could learn several things about how to make good comics by yourself, and you don't need incredible drawing skills for that, the most important thing is your wish to share your thoughts or a story. Hihus and Nastya also spoke about history of comics and different styles of comics.
During workshop participants also could draw their own comics and share it with others. Hihus and Nastya presented "Respect" comics project, which you all can find at: respect.com.mx. Project's growing up, and we hope, that maybe some of our today's workshop participants will join "Respect"'s team someday too.
