My name is Alisa Didkovsky, and I am a 24-year-old Ukrainian immigrant living in America. I am a big music lover and listen to almost anything from rock to punk, hip-hop to folk music, and music is usually what inspired my illustration and comic projects. Besides music, my own family, culture, friends, and even languages are constantly giving me new ideas.
You will find in my portfolio many works, most of which are part of one project – Aj Řomale thaj Šavale. This is a comic project I am working on about a Roma family, their life – the happy times with weddings and children, as well as the difficult times dealing with discrimination. I have done, and continue to do, research on culture and tradition, and I have made many a wonderful friend, who help and support me. This story, once it is complete, will be for Roma and non-Roma alike – to show something positive, real, and entertain as well as educate.
Other projects and illustrations in my portfolio are part of my webcomic Horny Tails or an upcoming comic The Neon King – the latter is still a bit of a mystery and is still brewing.
