As part of the “Rise of the Graphic Novel” panel discussion at the Commonwealth Club on Monday, April 25, 2010, the Commonwealth Club organized a cartooning contest for local artists. The winner of the contest, Roman Muradov, will have his artwork featured on the Cartoon Art Museum’s website.
Roman Muradov is an llustrator, writer and comic artist. Muradov creates short tragicomic absurd stories in different styles from tales of a lonely bear whose only friend is his brain cancer to morphine-powered hallucinations of a Hitler-slaying fish landlord. Muradov is color-blind and sees the world in a weird and beautiful way.
Muradov has lived most of his life in cold Moscow, Russia, and is currently residing in warm San Francisco, CA.
