The name Cartoonia is derived from the word »cartoon«. As you may know comics have been marginalized in most of the European countries and even forbidden in some of them. Therefore we felt a need to establish a safe, lively country, a fatherland of some sort to all cartoonists/comics artists of the world, as well as comics in general. The well-known citizens from these countries are in this essential guide of the land of comics telling stories about homelands of the other residents of the new Cartoonia land. The stories were inspired by objects and other specialties of the countries: architectural types, folk craft, archeological findings, food, cars, endemic species and cultural differences. There are & Slovene and & foreign artists involved in this lively intercultural dialogue: from Slovenia, Kaja Avberšek, Jakob Klemencic, Matej Lavrencic, Marko Kociper, Gašper Rus, Matej Stupica, Andrej Štular and Jure Engelsberger. Authors from other countries include Bendik Kaltenborn (Norway), Mateusz Skutnik(Poland), Andrea Bruno (Italy), Matei Branea (Romania), Jyrki Heikkinen (Finland) and Filipe Abranches (Portugal).
