Comic Workshop with Anna Haifisch

Comic Workshop with Anna Haifisch

Anna Haifisch conquered the world with her web comic The Artist on Vice.com. Meanwhile the stories are also printed and available as books in many different languages. The comic is a satirical portrait of the fine art world, very colorfully told with slightly depressed animals.
In May Anna Haifisch will come to Goethe-Institute Riga to teach a comic workshop in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of Latvia and the other Baltic states. How can you celebrate such an event with fun and charming comics? You'll only find out if you take part! And for sure you'll learn a bunch more tricks to create comics!
