Hello everyone!

Today I would like to present you a project from scrap to art!

I made it by upcycling some blocks of corrugated cardboard I had kept from IKEA furniture packages and pieces from pizza boxes.

For this project I drew my inspiration from Prima’s moodboard for July’s Challenge and it is my entry for the challenge.

Born Bad - MM&A June Thematic Challenge

Hello everyone!

Once again with a car as a focal point!

I would like to share with you my version of “Christine”, the car from John Carpenter’s horror movie that was filmed in 1983.

I saw it three years later, in 1986, when I was 13 years old, but I will never forget it!
This is a mixed media project, created on a 12.5” x 12” piece of 300gsm Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor paper. It is my entry to the Mixed Media & Art Thematic Challenge for June.

Awareness - Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to present you one more project with which I’m entering the Annual Prima DTCall.  #PrimaDTCall

This time I drew my inspiration from some very popular female portraits.

As you all know, they were created by the famous and very talented artist Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988). He found the face of operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri, in a 19th-century magazine, and created over 500 variations of her face!

By looking at them, I realized that combining some of the portraits together, one can create a whole story.

That is how I created this mixed media layout.

It measures 12” x 12” and I used a piece of design paper from my stash to make it.

Modern Deity

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to share with you a new project I created for my participation to Prima Design Team Call. #PrimaDTCall

As a Greek, I am always fascinated by my country’s ancient history and civilization and very often I draw my inspiration from myths about ancient gods and heroes.

I had this curvy glass bottle in my kitchen, for so long, that I couldn’t even remember where I had found it. Then, one day I realized that its shape reminded me of the Minoan snake goddess.

This magnificent figurine was found in the palace of Knossos by the British archaeologist Arthur Evans. It is being displayed at the Archeological Museum of Herakleion, Crete.

I started wondering how a contemporary goddess would look like, what she would symbolize, what kind of story she would tell to the future generations about our time.

This is how I imagined her to be and I really hope you like it!
