Hello, we are the Funny Comics Show Festival from Zagreb! In our country we call ourselves Crtani Romani Show, and we like it. We are glad to be exclusive bloggers on this occasion at Body Pixel presenting you the interview we did with master Romero, the creator of unforgettable comic book characters Modesty Blaise and Axa.
This interview has been made during audience talk with Enrique Badia Romero and with significant contributions from the audience. Funny Comics Show Festival says a big THANK YOU to all! (and Deborah said to add on her behalf this: AAAAAH, this is the last interview covering CRS 2010… it was a rather exciting edition, see you next year!).
This is the second part of the interview with Aleksa Gajic. Read the first part here: Rendering spaces, drawing stories
Here is my next guest from Funny Comics Show 2010! Serbian comic book artist and animator Aleksa Gajic… Beside being a respectful international comic book artist, illustrator and video maker, Aleksa launched in 2009 his first feature-lenght animated film ‘Technotize: Edit and I‘.
Technotize has been warmly accepted by the audience and critics in the whole South East European region, not only because of shared memories, but because it showed that with passion and persistence ideas with smaller budget than you would expect can arise on the horizon.

Stan Sakai certainly owns a black belt in comic book mastery… The creator of Usagi Yojimbo – the rabbit samurai was during November one of the guests of the Funny Comics Show Festival in Zagreb. There we talked a little bit about his artworks, characters, techniques, influences and Japanese heritage…
