New book by Nikos Lakopoulos

I am really happy that I have created the cover illustration of "Το Μαγικό Ταξίδι Των Λέξεων", (The magical travel with words) by the good friend, writer and journalist Nikos Lakopoulos. This is a fantastic book that explores the sounds and meanings of words between different languages and civilizations.

Taxes 4 the church

The great financial problem of Greece is a very serious aspect which has managed to change million people's lives by the salaries reduction and the government's new announcements. Although there in no doubt about the seriousness of the situation, there are people and organizations that have managed to escape from the taxes. One of these organizations is the Greek Orthodox Church which has huge fortune and does not pay taxes. This picture was created for an article that I have written about the denial of the Greek Church to pay the taxes in such a difficult situation for the country...!

"Hands" project in Thessaloniki Cheap Photo

Cheap art is an international art movement that brings several art forms closer to a wider public, declaring that art is for everybody, not just for the wealthy minority.
In the exhibitions of Cheap Art, everybody is able to buy great works of art in extremely low prices.
This year, the Photographic Centre Of Thessaloniki organizes a Cheap Photo Exhibition in TETTIX gallery in the centre of the city. The visitors of the exhibition will be able to buy original photos by well known photographers just for 65 euros. I am glad to be part of the Cheap Photo Exhibition with 6 photos from my "Hands" project. Here are 2 of my photos that will be presented (for first time) in Cheap Photo.

Blood Donation Poster

Blood Donation is a major aspect. Donating blood is probably the most important thing you could offer to another human being.
I have co-operated in the past with the students of the Blood Donation Team from the University of Crete in co-operation with the "Agia Sofia" Pediatric Hospital of Athens. I had created an illustration for the blood donation project for one of their previous meetings which I have also presented here in Slipcase.
I am really glad that we had the oportunity to work together once more. During this project, I have tried to avoid using dark colors and shocking images. I thought it would be much better to illustrate a happy and optimistic view of blood donation.

The blood donation took place in Rethymno. I designed a grafitty-style city of Rethymno and a digital illustrated paper boat as a symbol of hope. The blood donation went really good and I am glad to create illustrations for such great purposes.

I have recently illustrated a book about mathematics. The writer, is a pre-school advisor, mathematician and a really talented writer. This is one of the experimental illustrations. Finally, we have chosen a different illustration style. The book is in publishing process and will be released soon. I will post some of the final illustrations and additional information about the writer as soon as the book is in the stores.

The last "Nymphs" photo

"Nymphs" was a photographic project created especially for the exhibitions of Cocun Urban Art. This one is probably the last photo from the "Nymphs" project.
This project is going to be finished soon, probably by designing a limited edition book with texts and photos. This picture is a little bit different than the others. It' s the view of my good friend's village house, digitally altered.
Edited in July 2009.


These are the mushrooms that I recently have designed for the invitation of the christening celebration of the lovely little princess Kalliopi. The celebration after the ceremony had a red mushroom theme, so I had fun time designing several kinds of mushrooms.

Toyhead series

I have designed this pictures in 2009. These were part of a project which was created for a restaurant wall in Athens.
Finally, we thought that some classical portraits, would be much better for that particular space. I loved this "toyhead" vintage series and I am finally planning to mount then on a small corridor wall of my office in Crete.

I haven't yet decided about the frame type, but I think I am going to solve this problem soon. When I finally mount them, I will probably post a pic.

Cult or Kitsch? Neither! Just ultra durable cucumbers...

Creating an illustration for a cucumber advertising poster is not the most usual project that could happen to a designer. This is an illustration for Valentine F1, an ultra strong and durable type of cucumbers.
This is a fast and simple illustration for demonstrating reasons.
Finally this illustration is not the chosen one, but I think its kind of... cult so i decided to post it here.

Blood Donation

This is an arwork, created for a blood donation meeting. It is actually a photo montage, mixed with one of my simple line-art "pantrifi" drawings. I think it was really important for me to express an optimistic view. Donating blood is giving life. Donating is a shiny and optimistic act, and this is the message that his poster should pass on.

Yesterday I was working on some illustrations for a web project. I designed some traditional cretan cartoon characters for a project that have recently started by an important personality of the international scientific community. The project is related to the development of unexploited mountainous areas. It is an interesting project with many important participants. I guess we are going to have further co-operation for really good purposes.

This is not a work in process. It's the book cover illustration of a recently published book. The book, is a philosophic novel, a story about religions, written by my good friend Thodoris Riginiotis. The symbols-key was his idea and I tried to illustrate it according to his way of thinking, which I think is close to my way of illustrating! lol.
Anyway, I think that we both like the final result ...

* The name of the book is "The most well - hidden secret in the world"
