Pek, the Traveller Flea 1

Pek, the Traveller Flea, is a comic made among several European schools.

We developed "Pek, the Traveller Flea 1" in March, April and May 2010.

We will make "Pek, the Traveller Flea 2", a bigger comic, next school year.


not just a copy

Posted by: Maria Sourgiadaki

Today, I received a package from Spain.

When I opened it, I stayed speechless for a while, awed, overwhelmed by the joy of holding in my hands the real copies of Pek's magazine. It was such a different feeling, compared with seeing the result of our work on a pc's screen!

Creation is a divine gift, a power to transform an abstract idea into something real.

How many people got involved in this task How many hours invested How many steps, how many parts connected into a chain of creative events? .....

  • ...from the time when Pek was firstly conceived as a thought, till it was planned as a project,
  • ....till students from different places in Europe, started holding a pencil and they were transforming a blank, white sheet of paper into a comic template
  • ...till some other students were choosing colors to "dress" the black-and-white trips of Pek
  • ...when Marcos was arranging the printing of the magazine

...till we finally got this copy in our hands!

What I am holding in my hands, is not just a copy. It's the miracle of imagination and etwinning collaboration.
