KUŠ! Comic Zine Workshop
KUŠ! Comic zine workshop, lead by artist Oskars Pavlovskis and co-founder of kuš! David Schilter, will be a collaborative comic drawing experience welcoming participants of any age and skill level. During the three day workshop we will work together with other participants. You will have the opportunity to take part in a journey through the process of drawing, printing and assembling a unique self-published comic magazine (Zine).
kuš! (speak koosh!) is a comics art anthology from Latvia founded 2007 in Riga. Every issue contains comics from international and Latvian artists to a certain theme which changes every issue. The aims of kuš! are to popularize comics in a country where this medium is practically non-existent and promoting Latvian comics abroad.
kuš! doesn’t just publish comics on paper, but also organizes exhibitions, workshops, comics jams and other comics related events besides traveling to international festivals to spread the Latvian comics fever.
Oskars Pavlovskis is an artist from Riga, Latvia. Drawing comics is just one of the things Oskar does. While professionally working as a computer graphic artist, he is still looking around and enjoys working in different media – making short animations, illustrations, sculpting and 3D computer graphics. Oskars Pavlovskis has participated in various groups and exhibitions and his work has been published in international and local illustration and comic magazines.
