Andrei Molotiu

Andrei Molotiu's blog title says it all: blot comics. But there's a much more than meets the eye (and the brain)!
Molotiu was born in 1967 in Bucharest, Romania, and moved to the United States in 1983. He lives and works as a college professor and artist in Bloomington, Indiana.

He works both with a more traditional approach and computer-assisted techniques to create his very particular strand of work, which can be powerful black-and-white embroideries of thick paint as well as flamboyant colour pieces.

"Re-drawing" is a pretty important verb in his craft.

Make sure you see as much as possible and take in everything it triggers.
You can find his work in many collective publications and seld-published stuff (which I guess is more or less accessible), but stay also tuned for the forthcoming Nautilus (issued by the Danish Fahrenheit).
