Two young artists from Greece, Spiros Nobilakis and Eugenia Koumaki, created a graphic novel comic to show the interconnectedness of our world and how one small action can have disastrous consequences. The comic is called "Butterfly Effect" and can be viewed after our brief interview with Spiros and Eugenia.
What inspired you to create this graphic novel-type comic?
Nobilakis: Immigration has been an important topic in Europe during the past years. While traveling around, I noticed the lack of empathy most people showed toward Syrian refugees. A lot of these Syrian refugees used to belong to a thriving middle-class only a few years ago and could have never imagined their current situation. I wanted to have people around the world see that and make them understand that exactly the same thing could happen to them—to any one of us.
