  • Prologue: Albert's story

    This short story comes from Linhart Robert's book "L' ETABLI". Actually, it is the result of the combination of two separate stories of the book (relating to two separate individuals).

Current Projects

Current Projects

Recently, after the publication of my comic album "Windy Nights" (Kapsimi, oct. 2018) and the completion of "We want Everything" (and in search of a way to publish it) I work on several projects:

  • Gathering material/ ideas and taking notes for a new comic about Leonardo da Vinci (perhaps relative to my older comic "Journey in the sky")
  • Translating in english my comic "The Death of William George Allum". Each translated page is published firstly on my Patreon page. When I complete them I will publish them also here.
  • Caricatures (along with realistic portraits) as studies in drawing and digital coloring.
  • Sorting out of older scripts and texts
  • Taking notes and thoughts about an animation (possibly) based on my comic "The Death of William George Allum".

Caricatures

Caricatures

Back in late '00s and early '10s I used to make some caricatures mostly inspired by political situations, especially here in Greece. Some of them were used to illustrate animated works while others were standalone sketches. Recently I started again making some works that could be described as caricatures only this time my inspiration came by other fields like literature and art. As I want to continue with this activity (at least as long as I have spare time between my comic works) I decided to create a separate section to present all these works together.

Windy Nights

Kapsimi publication company, Oct. 2018

It's dangerous to travel in the night -especially when it's windy. But for some it's even more dangerous...  For some the moon is always red and the air smells like blood. And yet they survive. Because they have to. Because they are determined...
