autobio comic - 09 Aug 2011 - A tragicomical tribute to Amy Winehouse drawn on 12 Aug 2009

A tragicomical tribute to Amy Winehouse.
It just dawned upon me that I hadn't uploaded anything in yonks, so fittingly I thought I'd submit this autobio comic that I drew exactly 2 years ago after passing through the lanes of Exarchia.

Tuesday, 13 April 2010


Hiya!
This year's Comicdom Con Athens has already come up, so I guess, as always, I'll be @ Jemma Press' booth at the lobby of the Greek-American Union (Ellinoamerikaniki Enosi)Massalias 22, Athens, signing away for all you desperate fanboys...

I will be presenting/signing my new (?) comicbook, the reprint of the out-of-print, awarded "Giant-Size Fascists #1" , its sequel "Giant-Size Fascists ConMix Extravaganza" , the "AUTODIVINE" EP, which I illustrated and performed on.

These are the days and hours that I'll be there:
Friday 16 April 20:00-22:00
Saturday 17 April 20:00-22:00
Sunday 18 April 18:00-20:00

Also, I will be attending the panel "Comparative anatomy in historical Comicbook Tissue" comparative-anatomy-in-historical-comic-book-tissue which means that me and a bunch of other fine comicartists will be drawing live infront of a crowd inspired by some of the original art pieces (from the history of comics) that will be exhibited at the Comicon Con.
This will take place on Saturday 17th April @19:00 (at the Theatre of the Greek-Hellenic Union).

On another note, I've also taken part with a 4page autobio comics story about my mate Vicky in the comicbook/artbook anthology "At the Drive-Ink", which features stories/illustrated lyrics from comicbook artists and other artistes influenced by the legendary greek garage band "The Last Drive".. That will be also presented officially at the Comicdom Con (at the publisher's booth, "TILT, which'll be right next to Jemma's booth-- so, if you go there, drop by to say hi!)

See you at the Con,

Con!

an old autobio comic


autobio comic done on the 21st January 2005..
ever since then, the restaurant that we ate in, "Food Company", has moved from, uber-kitsch/posh area, Kolonaki to dirt ridden, yet more relaxed area, Exarchia (thank goodness), yet our friend Dimitris Lalas still works there..
highly recommended (and cheap as hell)!

ever since then, I've realised that doing comics in Greece will never, ever, help you earn a buck, so I got a daytime job and yet I still always, but always, wake up late for work..

I pretty much despise video games, and besides my mobile phones' and the Game Gear's, I hardly play any at all..
they're a total waste of time & creativity, at least to me..
but I could be wrong..
(oh, a few years ago I played Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas at a cousin's house, and, OK, it just rules... so I'm probably just worried that I'll get hooked or something)

before settling with our current bass player, Vicky, my band, autodivine, was looking for a bass player and we'd tried a few guys out..
Helm, a fellow comicbook artist, didn't exactly want to join a 24/7 band but was fun to be around, when he wasn't all that serious..
Vasilis Ntzounis is my songwriting partner in autodivine.. terribly fun guy to the day...
