Lucie Arnoux, from France, doesn’t just draw comics on paper: she also does them as vast murals, theatre backdrops and fantasy RPGs.

Vojtěch Mašek, from the Czech Republic, was a visiting artist-in-residence at LICAF 2019, during which he sketched out a graphic novel ‘Raymond’ about the town of Kendal.

Václav Šlajch, from the Czech Republic, is an electrical engineer, a book illustrator and Head of Media at the University of West Bohemia. You would have thought that might keep him busy, but he’s also a pioneering and award-winning comics writer and artist.

Andrea Settimo, from Italy, is the co-creator of ‘The Corner’, a graphic novel focused on anarchists, gangsters, broken ideals, impossible promises, betrayals, sex and terrorism.
