Pecás Petya

Zoltán Balog is a Hungarian graphic artist, illustrator and multimedia developer. Balog studied to become a graphic artist at the Számalk art school, where the Mihály Munkácsy Award-winning contemporary artist Csaba Pál was his teacher. His first illustrations and caricatures were published in the Hungarian newspaper Nepszava in 1992. Through graphic artist Pinter Peter he got in touch with comics artist Attila Fazekas, who gave Balog a lot of useful advise to further develop his graphic skills. His first comic stories were published in Fazekas' comics paper Botond in the 1990s. Throughout the years, he was worked as a team with Fazekas on many occasions. His funny cartoons also appeared on the Telesport news, which was broadcasted on Magyar Televízió TV in 1994. He has regularly worked with scriptwriter Ferenc Kiss on adaptations of literary classics, and with humorist Tamás Wéber on comical stories.
