Self-published comic exhibition “The Thing You Always Wanted To Do”

There are plenty of things we postpone for different reasons. Reasons always are strong, hardly breakable, but jet there is hope! 9 young artists from Dresden, Budapest, and Rome met in Riga and for one day did the thing they always wanted to.

They took their experience as inspiration for a self-published comic book, drew through days and nights, and here they are – nine outstanding handbound comic books with covers printed in lithography.

Comic books are done as a part of EU4Art Alliance program in the Graphics department of the Art Academy of Latvia. Young artists during the intensive two-week workshop from 28th of March to 8th of April were led by Patrīcija Māra Vilsone, Rūta Briede, Mārtiņš Dziļums, and Sanita Skalbe.
