Hungarian Comics - From 19th Century till WWIFirst of all, I'd like to say that when I heard that there will be a Graphics week, I was so happy and wanted to write and article about it since I studies Traditional Graphics for 4 years. I had History of Art classes and I had some extra classes from it. I just loved what we studied in school!
The roots of Hungarian comics reach back to the mid 19th century. Until the late 1930s Hungarian comics followed the European trends. Comic strips were generally found in newspapers and magazines, featuring works from both Hungarian and foreign artists. Since comics were so closely bound to the printed media, their creators were mostly caricature artists as well. The years preceding World War II proved to be unfavorable for comics as the mainly Jewish owned yellow press basically disappeared together with comic strips (a great exception were children’s comics).
Interesting note: The Hungarian word for comics is képregény, a combined word from ké
Hungarian Comics - Between the two WarsBetween the two wars
First issue of Hári János, with a page of Lyman Young's Tim Tyler's Luck translated as Puskás Pista
The comic strip boom of the USA had a growing effect on Hungarian newspaper publishing until the late thirties. American comics flooded all kinds of newspapers, magazines. Hári János (1936-1937), a magazine for children is considered to be the first Hungarian comic book magazine, with comic strips on every page. Walt Disney strips, Secret Agent X-9, Little Nemo in Slumberland (Kis Némó Álomországban), George McManus strips and many others marked this period.
Not as many Hungarian comics were made in this period, while – for example – Yugoslavia, the southern neighbor, claims this period to be their Golden Age.
During this period the truncated Hungary was an ally of Germany. In 1937 the Minister of Justice began restricting the great amount of pulp literature and yellow press. I

Famous Photographs: The Afghan GirlIf you run a google search on what are the top famous Photographs of all time, The Afghan Girl is sure to appear. She is truly a face from History and one that many across the globe have tried to capture within others time and time again. But what exactly has made this image and its photographer so captivating?
Source: Daily Mail/National Geographic/Steve McCurry
Eyes, they say, are the window to the soul. And capturing such a piercing and expressive look in a photograph is a highly sought after skill. The Afghan Girl exhibits suspense, suspicion and a sense of distrust at the person behind the lens, she gives off an air of maturity, a foreboding feeling - a vulnerability behind years of strength. That, is what makes her so captivating.
Sharbat Gula is her name, although few even know this rather important detail. Sh
Famous Photographs: Lunch Atop A SkyscraperWhilst the most famous photographs from across the years often feature famine, death, destruction and war, it's sometimes refreshing to catch a glimpse of one or two that don't exhibit depression, demise and conflict. Photo-journalism can work both ways to brief the viewer of an image on what it's like to step into somebody else's shoes. It can shock, bring a tear or even, by some miracle - a smile.
Lunch Atop A SkyScraper does exactly that. It provokes a smile, it features across the world in postcards, books, greeting cards and other formats and ultimately it tugs at that part of your heart that knows there can be good in the world. So what makes it famous?
The Photograph itself shows eleven working men eating lunch, sitting on a steel girder. Nothing extraordinary about that right? Wrong. Their feet are dangling 256 metres above New York City. Nobody actually knows w
Famous Photographers: What we can learnThere are things that we can learn from everybody, whether it's as they say - sitting at the feet of an elderly person - or indeed reading from a book, looking at history in photos and so on. But what, if anything, can we learn from the Famous Photographers of the past? Well, plenty.
Julie Margaret Cameron
She was a shrewd business woman, and her fame came from having the only photographs of some very famous iconic people in History. And how did she manage this? By meticulously keeping details and registering her copyright with every single Photograph she took. We can learn a lot from her actions, particularly in an age where anything can be replicated, if you have the right tools. Equally, we can also learn the value of the equipment we have around us, and how easy it is now to capture a photograph and share it with the world. Julie's time in Sri Lanka served as a testimony that without pure water and chemicals, she couldn't continue with her craft and a
A History of Photography (Mostly)Art History Photography Month has begun and where better to start than with the History of Photography! I appreciate not everything is included, but here are some key main events and features, images and happenings that have impacted Photography across the years.

This is said to be where it all began with Alhazen inventing the first pinhole camera - known as Camera Obscura. Heard the phrase before? Now you know where it originates from! Aristotle observed and noted in around 330BC the optic laws that made pinhole cameras possible and questioned why the Sun could make a circular image when it shined through a square hole.

La LineaThis is one of the most influential and iconic animated series ever made in my opinion. La Linea (The Line) is a classic Italian animated series by Osvaldo Cavandoli. The animation follows the character, Mr. Linea, who is drawn by a single line. Even if you don't know La Linea, some of you may recognise the voice actor as the original voice of Pingu the penguin. The language he speaks is based on Italian (Milanese dialect) but spoken in a way that essentially is gibberish!
Due to it's 'lack of language' this became an international hit, which I think is one of the best essences of film making. Having the power to cross borders without a language barrier is a fantastic skill to have!
But why do I think this is one series we should all know about?
Mr. Linea is always presented with obstacles, drawn in by the animator. Sometimes he'll succeed, sometimes he'll fail. So for example perhaps he's trying to reach something high up, so he complains to the animator. The animator draws a flight o
William KentridgeWilliam Kentridge is a South African born filmmaker, sculptor and artist. His works are full of narrative that is influenced by politics and his studies in theatre. He generally works in traditional media such as charcoal and pastels. Some of his most memorable works were between the years of 1989 and 1996, which were a series of animations as viewed through the eyes of three different running characters.
During this period of time his works talked about the politics, social issues such as race and class, and injustice in South Africa at the time. Whilst his works are often about his views about what is going on, sometimes there are autobiographical elements in it as he has included his own image in his work.
The way he treats his materials also adds to the messages he is trying to get across. Rubbing out charcoal lines, drawing over it, but of course charcoal never cleans off completely so you can get a sense of the passing of time, decay and memory in his film.
"In the same w
Eadweard MuybridgeSo Eadweard Muybridge, why should all animators know his name? He is an English photographer who moved over to America. So what is a photographer doing in our Film, Animation and Flash month?
Well his photography is really quite unique for the time, he set up multiple cameras for his shots in order to capture motion in the form of stop-action photography. He was also known for creating the zoopraxiscope, which plays a series of images in order to create the illusion of motion, in other words very early animation work! These series of images were on disc that were spun and projected, so the images loop in sequence. Kind of like your first generation animated gifs!
His photography work and his zoopraxiscope helped people to study in detail how things move. From the way people walk, jumping, running through to horses galloping. And as a tutor once said to me, if you can animate a horse, you can animate anything. These images surprised many people, such as when a horse runs, there is a pha
Kyle Cooper - Revolutionizing title sequencesTitle sequences are to movies what appetizers are to food. Often underrated, they are not unimportant. A good title sequence leaves a good first impression of the film, and makes the watcher want to see more. Good title sequences can be found throughout history of film, and some have even left a profound impression on their franchise. One example of this is the James Bond series, where in the first film, "Dr. No" (1962) many of the iconic aspects of the James Bond movies were established in the first few minutes; the gun barrel sequence and the music in particular.
There is one man in particular who took the art of title sequences to a whole new, insane level. That man is Kyle Cooper.
In the movie "Se7en", we are confronted with a serial killer who murders his victims in a way that reflects the sins they have committed in their lives. What seperates Se7en from many other horror movies is the source of these murders: normally we see one disturbed ind

This month we will be looking at just some of these through a series of articles written by members of the literature community. These articles are snippets of the great history this proud art form has to boast.
We are inviting everyone, not just “writers” to come and get involved with this month! Maybe you will uncover a subject you knew nothing about but found deeply interesting, or feel
PetalsThe grass tickled between her toes as her father toiled away with the roses by the letterbox. She watched his fingers weave between the thorns to pat the soil around each bush, humming to some John Lennon song she couldn't put a name to. Despite the sun just tipping the horizon, she saw sweat prickling his brow and his eyes squinting against the light. The fine lines on his face were suddenly accentuated by shadow, and for a moment, she swelled with wonder.
'Maria, come here,' he said, waving her over. 'You're not going to learn anything sitting all the way over there.'
Excitement sparked her limbs into motion, and she crawled over to sit next to him, careful to tuck her skirt beneath her thighs to avoid the dirt.
He picked up a pair of clippers from beside him. 'Now, you need to snipe back these diseased parts here and there from the base of the plant. It helps it grow better.'
Snipping off two pieces of wood with ease, he deposited them in Maria's outstretched hand. Their rough textu
Dreams of realityA pair of eyes;
Open and stare through the lights,
Into the darkness of doom.
And yet they smile,
Yet they smile.
A drop of tear;
Seeps through the garden of death;
Falls to the mortal soil.
Dreams and desires will blend again,
To render the roses alive.
I am floating through a vision.
Like ripples, floating through the pond of life.
Can reality be so real?
Let me drown again,
Into the silence of familiar noise.
As I wander through the lanes of reason and passion.
The flame of hope burns bright,
Drenched in the colors of freedom.
So let my dreams unravel my soul,
As darkness fades away;
And let mortality draw me closer to destiny.
As these pair of eyes,
Open to stare through the lights again.
Is this reality?
Can reality be so real?
Time passes by, as the eyes keep staring;
Staring at the distant lights;
Staring beyond the distant skies.
What do they see?
What do they long?
What do they desire?
Then the skies will break down;
White lightning striking the dreamy clouds.
Moments will tur
