It's been a while since someone asked me to do some animation:))) I am soooooooo happy they called me up and asked me to do something for a festival in Patras about refugees:))) They are going to present it all over the city but who cares about that... This is my first ever attempt in Flash, it's just a reeeally rough layout of the line of action.

The story is simple and anyone that has passed through Patras within the last few years will find something familiar. The rugees always stand behind the bars leading to the port watching the ships go by hopping that they will eventually find a way to board in one and head to Italy... They never do and most of the times a police officer will 'kindly' ask them to get the f.... away from there:P I am really not into politics (I'd say against it:P) but the situation these people live is unacceptable...

The festival's intention is to rise these issues so I am all for it!!!

The plot in the animation is simple: The guy watching the ships is the refugee - the guy shouting at him is the officer...watch it you'll get the point;PPPP

Anyone with good sound effects web-sites?Or pictures of the port of Patras?Anyone care to help?:PPPP

Color experimentation

Just a little experiment with color....Spot the differences:P

Χρωματικοί πειραματισμοί....Για βρείτε τις διαφορές:Ρ



Inspired from my beloved cat that died at the age of 9 due to cancer:))) I will make her famous!!!:))))

Δεν σας εχω ξεχάσει αλλά τρέχω τις τελευταίες μέρες οπότε....Λιγο Βελιγραδιώτικο άρωμα:)))


Graffiti Workshop - Balkanima 2008

In Beograd I have done something I always remember myself wanting to do but neverrrhad the courage to do it!!!! Graffiti!!!!!

The Graffiti Workshop (which proved to be a workshop only for me in the end:P) was a terrific experience and the guys helped me a lot!

R-E-S-P-E-C-T for these kinds of artists! It's not easy (at all) and the spray pressure and line needs loads and loads of practice!!!

Here I present to you my first ever attempt to 'draw' with spray on the wall (which only made it harder since I am short:P). My arm and back are still sore from this but I LOVED IT!!!!!!

Στο Βελιγράδι μου δόθηκε η ευκαιρία να κάνω κάτι που από όσο θυμάμαι τον ευατό μου ήθελα να κάνω αλλα δεν έβρισκα το κουράγιο!!! Γκράφιτι!!!

Το Εργαστήριο Γκράφιτι (που αποδείχθηκε εργαστήριο μόνο για μένα γιατι οι υπόλοιποι 'φύσαγαν' πραγματικά) ήταν μια καταπληκτική εμπειρία και τα παιδιά με βοήθησαν τόσο μα τόσο πολύ!!!

Τρέφω απόλυτο ΣΕΒΑΣΜΟ για αυτού του είδους τους καλλιτέχνες!Σας πληροφορώ ότι δεν είναι κα8όλου εύκολο και το σπρέι χρειάζεται ειδικούς χειρισμούς και δεξιοτεχνίες!

Σας παρουσιάζω και γω λοιπόν διαδικαστικά την πρώτη μου προσπάθεια να 'ζωγραφίσω' με σπρέι ( που είναι ακόμα δυσκολότερο λόγω ύψους).Ακόμα πονάει το χέρι μου και η μέση μου αλλα γουστάααααρω τρελά!!!!!
