Birthdate? 20 of December

When did you start painting? I started at an early age. I always knew I came to this world to be an illustrator and a painter

When and what and where did you first get published? 
First time I got published around 2009, when I started my career, in Greece, at newcomicz.gr

Why do you do artwork? Basically, because it´s a quite "addictive" personal needing to express through my hands, what is at the corners of my soul.

Why do you do illustrations for Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? Because I found always much more appealing the Worlds of Fantasy and Daydream, and explore my own soul through them, than the common reality itself.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I have too many. As a illustrator, Frazetta, Huges, Azpiri, Mignola, as an author Poe, Lovecraft, Orwell, Rowling or K. Dick,

What are you trying to say with your art? I use it as a open door to other worlds, a new window to another universes, maybe forged by my own dreams and imagination.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? A quote from Winston Churchill: "Never give up".
