Briefly about this project and current open calls
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





Stripnjak is an independent small-press project dedicated to visual perversions; a merciless and brutal, yet honest presentation of empty truths easily swallowed by the sheer ignorance of modern life, the obvious surrealism embracing our daily surroundings, and various other general weirdness.

Our headquarters are in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Bergen (Norway).

Stripnjak will focus on four graphic/comics actions:

graphic books (graphic albums, strip collections and illustration/art books)
minicomics & zines (comics/graphic zines and mini-comics)
stripe zvukan edition (comics & sound multimedia releases)
exhibitions (comics and graphic narrative art and abstract comics, zine promotions and occasionally sound shows)

Submissions
Generally we are looking for original, out of any scene comics, abstract comics, poetry comics or any weird narrative graphics. Nudity, sex or "provocative" stuff are welcomed as long as they are not banal hate propaganda.
