KOURAFELKYTHRA #200 Special Guest

Last week Antonis Vavagiannis (Vamvax) invited me as a guest to celebrate the unbelievable number #200 of his web comic strip "KOURAFELKYTHRA". I made this crazy story above (sorry but it's impossible to translate this).
You can follow all stories on COMICDOM Press (Greek) or the English version as "BULDERDUCK ...it's not even a word!"



On Saturday December 17 the JEMMA Press and KOULOURI arrived to Thessaloniki.
The presentation took place at evening in La DOZE Bar. Many people came to listen the conversation, we signed our comics and we drank several beers and wines. We had a great time!

Το line up της παρουσίασης (από αριτερά): Χρήστος Σταμπουλής μίλησε για το ΚΡΑΚ ΚΟΜΙΚΣ, η Αγιάτη Μπενάρδου ανέλαβε το ΠΤΩΜΑ, ο Τάσος Ζαφειριάδης ξετίναξε από το σουσάμι το ΚΟΥΛΟΥΡΙ και η Γκέλη Μαδεμλή ολοκλήρωσε με το ΔΕΝ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΥΤΟ ΠΟΥ ΝΟΜΙΖΕΙΣ. Ο εκδότης Λευτέρης Σταυριανός ήπιε πολλά νερά για να μην ληποθυμίσει με αυτά που άκουγε... Ακολούθησε πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα συζήτηση με το κοινό. Τους ευχαριστούμε ΟΛΟΥΣ! 

Morning coffee in the old town with fellas from The Very Closed Circle on Sunday.

Αυτό είναι το τρομερό βιβλιοπωλείο "Το ΚΕΝΤΡΙ" που συναντήσαμε στο δρόμο. Βρίσκεται εκεί από το 1982, βγαλμένο από άλλες, όμορφες εποχές, με άποψη και έχει όλες τις εκδόσεις της JEMMA Press και τα κόμικς της. Βρίσκεται στον κεντρικό και πολυσύχναστο πεζόδρομο Δ. Γούναρη απέναντι ακριβώς από τα αρχαία.

Περισσότερα σχετικά με το COMICS OVER SALONIKA θα βρείτε στα blog "Krak Komiks" του Tasmar και "Don't Ever Read Me" της Αγιάτης.

Report: HORROR WEEKEND - Sunday

And finally on Sunday December 12, I was presented my work in Panorama Design which took place at Benaki Museum in Athens. Specifically I developed the concept and the whole process of the logo and poster I made for BE THERE! Corfu Animation Festival.

I'm glad that I participated in this event and I had the opportunity to share some things and experiences with the amazing audience. Also a big thanks to Dimitris Fakinos by +Design Magazine for the invitation.

Report: HORROR WEEKEND - Saturday

On Saturday December 10 I took part in the discussion "Literature and Comics" at the 1st Festival for Young Authors which organized by The National Book Center of Greece (E.KE.BI) in collaboration with the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation in Athens. Also (from left) Lyda Tsene (coordinator), Petros Christoulias, Vasilia Vaxevani and Yannis Palavos participated in the discussion.

For all weekend at the festival, the people could see the comic strips slideshow by our team "THE VERY CLOSED CIRCLE"


Report: HORROR WEEKEND - Friday

Last Friday we made a graffiti with Tasmar (simply destroying the wall) at the inauguration of the new JEMMA Books & Comics store at Piraeus. It took us about seven hours to finish this unique baroque masterpiece and we felt it very well in our waist. But we had a great time and we saw many friends who passed to say hello. We thank them all!
