In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Riga, kuš! looked over the shoulders of ten comic artists based in Riga and Berlin. Each artist was asked to draw a "drawing person" and the result is captured in time-lapse films.
While each artist was filmed for about an hour, the videos are only 90 seconds each. So now you can see
yourself very quickly how some of the best German and Latvian comics artists (Aisha Franz, Anna Vaivare, Ernests Kļaviņš, Ingrīda
Pičukāne, Jakob Hinrichs, Mārtiņš Zutis, Mawil, Oliver Grajewski, Oskars
Pavlovskis and Sophia Martineck) create their art!
