A lifelong dream with a geeky twist.
I wanted to do comics since forever. Comics were my first passion – the very thing that pushed me into visual arts. Spider-Man was my hero, and Robert Crumb my model.

Very soon, I realised that making comics was hard – very hard – and that the dream of making a living out of it was naif – very naif. So I sorta stopped drawing comics.

I didn't stop drawing though. I graduated in media studies. I became a visual artist. I found a full time job as digital designer. But somewhere inside, there was still that thing pushing.

I wanted to publish a comic series. And I finally had an idea.

NASIN NASA is a series based on many of my lifelong passions: urban rollerskating, fictional languages, bubbly organic visuals, indie-style comic aesthetics... and things with a weird geeky twist.

Here's the twist: It is a silent comic – and at the same time it is not. It is to be enjoyed in its form of purely visual storytelling, ignoring the alien-language-balloons, but what appears to be a sort of fake maya script is actually a real existing language: the philosophical, minimalist constructed language toki pona, written in a hieroglyphic system called sitelen sitelen. You don't need to, but If you are a geek enough, you can read it.

I am publishing the series on Webtoon and Tapas, uploading a new episode every two months. I also launched a Patreon site that works like a subscription service for the printed version. And oh, yeah: "Nasin Nasa" means "The Weird Way(s)" in toki pona.

I hope you enjoy reading it.
