Plastelina, by Krzysztof Ostrowski

Krzysztof Ostrowski was born in Lodz, Poland in 1976. He started studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, and has become well known as the author of independent, surrealistic comics. He is often inspired by horror, western movies (especially those by Sergio Leone) and general everyday stupidity. His work combines the modern and expressive art with strong influences of Ted McKeever and Mike Mignola. His comics, especially his popular series 'Plastelina' and 'Karaoke', are published in magazines Arena, City and many others.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
