Why did you participate in LUX:plorations?
“I sometimes feel that Luxembourg isn’t using its full comic potential. So whenever I hear about a comic project, I gladly join in!”
What did you like most about LUX:plorations?
“The best thing was working together with so many interesting and nice people, that were always tolerant whenever I didn’t understand something.”
What was the biggest challenge for you?
“The biggest challenge was probably to get everything done in time. Everyone had a full schedule but still fully committed to the project. So sometimes we wrote mails and drew comics way after midnight in order to produce the result everyone aspired for.”
