Poster

제24회 부천국제만화축제 2021. 9. 4.토 - 12.일 한국만화박물관 & 유튜브

The 24th Bucheon International Comics Festival poster by comic artist Sim Woo-do, who won the Grand Prize at the Bucheon International Comics Festival Award last year for his work “Udukeoni,” expresses the festival’s theme “New Normal, New Connection.”
The poster features smartphone as the most symbolic object in modern society today and expresses smartphone communication between people in buildings. Inside the image of the smartphone, windows metaphor people living inside buildings; and within the frame, people are engaged in communication—direct or indirect—in their own ways.
s It represents communication in the new normal era during which people maintain social distancing and communicate in various ways.
