I’m proud to announce that my plans for 2014 in the field of comic art had just shaped deliciously. Basically, my hands are full.

I’ll be working on two comic albums. One of them, “Anastasia” is written by Magdalena Lankosz, polish journalist (Gazeta Wyborcza, Wysokie Obcasy) with a passion for good stories. “Anastasia” has a dark, strong and moody plot, it takes place in Old Hollywood and depicts it’s demons. I love the story, it will let me to explore fully my darker side and play with more expressive approach towards the comic art.

Second one is “Robotz”, written by Phill Hall, writer, editor for the British comics magazine Comics International, creator of the comics magazine Borderline. He has worked for DC Comics, Marvel UK, and a number of small independent publishers in both the UK and US. “Robotz” is a tale of sadness and hope in a future world where humanity’s legacy is being maintained by the unlikeliest of sources. It will be published by Borderline Press, a newly started graphic novel publishing company form UK. Both of those projects will be finished in 2014.

And this is not all. I have two other scripts I’m working on (without the clear deadline, but I do consider closing them in the nearest future): a longer, sad and painfully touching story about a domestic violence, “Kwaśne jabłko”, written by Jerzy Szyłak, one of the most hardcore and intriguing Polish comic scriptwriters. And a shorter story, written by Tomas Prokoupek, writer and editor of comic magazine “Aargh!” from Czech Republic.

Words can not express how excited (and a bit scared) I am.
Ok, mostly excited. It’s a blast!
