Good animation – a story made of colors – is distinguished by the authors’ ability to use those colors. The biggest mistake is the idea that color psychology is regular and follows a certain number of archetypes. Red is blood. Black is death. White is purity.

In the USA an artist drawing comics is called cartoonist, which already brings the creation of comics and animation closer. The lecture will tell about Persepolis (2000 – 2003), a graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi, which is part of the canon of contemporary authored comics. Persepolis is an autobiographic coming of age story of Satrapi himself, which starts against the background of Iranian revolution, brings the country to isolation and the character to complicated life between Iran and France, society and family, state and personality.
