Dear friends and artists,
I've decided to create a Facebook Professional account to promote your awesome Tributes to Valentina to promote Fantagraphics Crepax collection.
Don't judge me wrong, I love you all a lot and I sincerely apreciate all your support with some of my ideas, but I need to split in my mind what's Professional and what's personal in order to gain more focus in the work that I do, be it curating exhibitions, book collections, interviews, presentation videos, prefaces to books or book presentations.
I'll organize the tributes by artist in alphabetical order and put each artist in bold to be easier for you to see your tributes and where they were exhibited along your quotes about the character Valentina and your Biography aswell.
Many thanks to all of you for all your work and hope that you continue to support some of my ideas.
Special thanks to Gary Groth, Caterina Crepax and my muse and source of inspiration, my kitty Ilvie that was stolen from my sight recently.
Alexandra March - "I wanted to show to the side of Valentina as a trend setter, and someone who was not only observed or exploited as a clearly sensual fictional figure, but exerted enough of her own power to influence styles of real-life people."
I am a russian-born artist and designer living in Barcelona. I have been working in the arts in one way or another for most of my life. My interest and subsequently my projects are in the visual arts in general - illustration for books, painting, ceramics and design in its widest sense - from printed media to fashion. I feel very lucky to be able to express myself creatively and having the opportunity to do so as my 'work' in life.
