I Feel It Starts Again
"I Feel It Starts Again is a story about flower dreams, written and drawn during the isolation in Saint Petersburg. I watched days and months go by and fantasized about being a flower, enjoying sun, wind and rain. It was some sort of meditation during the process of adjusting to new reality and accepting my new life - and the most transcendent experience I ever had while making comics."
I'm a self-taught cartoonist from Siberia, educator, small press publisher and a founder of local indie comics festival. I was born in 1988 in a small village. My mom is a professional basketball player and coach. When I was 12 I almost got kicked out from school for distributing my comics about our teachers being dumb. I love flowers so much!
This zine is a part of three mini-comics produced by the residents of first installment of Pumpkin's Remote Residency, which ran between April and June 2020. Each artist worked independently to produce their own book.
Net revenue is split 50% between the Chi-Nations Youth Council and a fund to run Pumpkin's Residency again in the winter.
