OMAGIU 8 NANO
Omagiu is the first urban-style and contemporary art magazine in Romania. It's HUGE! Each issue is over 200 pages, all in colour.
This is how they describe themselves:
"'Omagiu' aims to be a platform dedicated to the creative industries, gathering together the most influential contemporary artists, architects, designers and musicians from the new generations. The magazine is a fusion of several types of publications, promising to be a trustworthy guide in the aesthetic jungle of the nowadays consumerist society, but also a collectable item, which will debate and analyse the vast contents of the urban culture in Romania and abroad. ‘Omagiu’ offers links to sites on the www which illustrate the changes produced in the conceptualising of the contemporary artistic act. ‘Omagiu’ will always be one step ahead of the trends, by observing and promoting innovative cultural areas."
Issue 8 is their "Nano" issue, dealing with all things tiny: technology, science, feelings, objects, and comics! You can find four of my comics in Omagiu 8, in full colour! All four comics are family friendly and quite delicious (as you can see below).
