MFKiG (International Festival of Comic and Games)  is the biggest comic event in Poland. This edition was special because of the 25th anniversary. My memory doesn’t reach that far, but I remember the year 2002, my first time with this event when I was dragging a big black file with me, filled up with drawings. A year later I’ve published my first comic album: “Szminka” (script by Jerzy Szyłak).

Today’s MFKiG does not resemble the niche event from 2002. From two years it takes place in Atlas Arena – a city stadium in Lodz. It still contains a huge element of improvisation – but it brings more and more people, so – good for us – comic artists.

Despite of the fact that MFKiG became a full blown commercial event it is still the time for friends – other creators, publishers, crazy fans. Oh, how I appreciate this! Some of those people I only see face to face once a year and I really enjoy to talk to them. It’s fun, an inspiration and a motivational kick. A great boost for my creativity. Thanks Guys!
