2014 in Review: Michael Fikaris

Highlights for me have been international exchanges as an illustrator/cartoonist - finishing a new graphic novel 'Art As Life' about the question of a working class artist putting comics into the streets again as murals and posters.
Writing from Indonesia where I am in the progress of doing a large colaborative comic strip
here in Yogyakarta where the culture is MASSIVE and where I just finished a project in Duri Sumatra consisting of 100+ cartoon portraits I put onto kites and installed across a village.

Looking forward to a few exciting projects like one with old mate Sam Wallman 'Where Do I Belong?' which will involve getting stories from people in detention centres and turning them into comics.
