Cheap East magazine – cover

What is so unusual about “Cheap East” magazine?  It’s all about comic. I’m proud to have my illustration presented on the cover of the very first issue (“Cheap East’s” circulation per issue is 10 000 and it’s distributed for free in galleries, coffee places, bookstores and libraries ). This publication, created by Centrala, presents works of comic artist from Poland and abroad. The goal is to expand cultural horizons, to present ambitious comic projects. As Michal Słomka, leader of Centrala says: “Those who publish comics want to show the variety in comic itself and break through the stereotypical way of thinking about this medium. “Cheap East” is also going to promote the comic gallery in Poznan, due to open on 20th of April, during The Ligatura – International Comic Festival. Have a look at the promo video, it shows what is it all about. The Festival starts tomorrow!
