Congratulations to Pan Terzis, RisoLAB Manager, for his MoCCA Excellence Award

Congratulations to RisoLAB manager and faculty member Pan Terzis for earning the MoCCA Award of Excellence!

Pan’s Risograph zine, titled ‘Megalith 6: Inside’ includes drawings created during the pandemic. The imagery is colorful but starkly geometric. Pan wanted to convey the lockdown’s ‘sci-fi domestic’ vibe.

This edition, published by Pan’s Mega Press, is 28 pages and is limited to 500 copies.
