Residency at NCCA Kronstadt, Saint Petersburg

I've spent a month in Russia on a residency program organized by the NCCA (National Center for Contemporary Art) where I have been preparing another "artistic" comic book  -  The working title is "Russian Depression" - so here are some nice photos I took!
