For the 6th time, Berlin will see a festival of illustration art, called “Illustrative”.
From the 31st of August until the 8th of September, 2013, numerous leading illustrators, graphic artists and collectives from all over the world will be shown in a central exhibition in the heart of Berlin. The range is from the established illustration art to the latest generation of young artist; from painting, drawing, installations, papercraft, book art and animation. This year’s focus will be on Polish artists especially.
I can recommend the Illustrative as an inspiring place to see some really good graphical work and meet interesting people. Read more →

In 2001 I was witness to one of the most impressive projects, a whole house as a screen, using single windows with lamps behind as digits! Blinkenlights took place the first time in Berlin at Alexanderplatz, watch a video documentary:

Furry aliens, cut off arms, explosions, a couple laying in the grass – Kazka is a comic with strong pictures and a dark story without words. To me, it seems somewhat familiar, maybe because it reminds me of Jean Giraud and although I am not super excited I kind of like it.
