Elisabeth Kuklenyik // February 2019

Elisabeth Kuklenyik is a Chicago based comics artist, illustrator and educator. She stayed with us in the cold and icy month of February.

Elisabeth joined us to work on her comic book series My Mother of Old Bones. The story is a mixture of biographical threads and explorational journeys into Elisabeth´s Eastern European roots. As a young girl, Elisabeth got seduced by infamous mystical Slavic creature Baba Jaga and her, as she says, obsession started to evolve ever since.

While everyone else would describe this Slavic witch as a purely evil creature, Elisabeth, during her explorations discovered unbelievable virtues of this old, scary lady. During her stay with us, Elisabeth regained her creative powers and continued working on the series.
