How did tou start doing comics?
Started really early as a kid, mostly sketching Disney characters as all do. About 16 years old it all turned into comic stories with my first random characters, presenting common people from everyday life. I always needed to tell stories that I love to create in my fantasy and almost always pushed by my city life.
When i started reading erotic comics there was an unofficial “beef” between druuna and manara fans, the first loved more the non realistic approach to the body and the others an everyday depiction of it. I think that your style is totally different , the characters are a kind of “cartoonish”.how can you describe it?
I call it EuroManga. I mean it’s a mixed technic where I use the body style and line of 70’s or 80’s European artists as Gotlib, Alexis and many more and the expressions of Japanese cartoons. Not a pioneer though, but putting together my very Greeky way to see my stories, I think I now have my very own style in sketching. Hopefully it’s recognisable as a unique sketching line.
What is your working method?
I work traditionally. Pencils and inking in hand on paper and then colouring digitally.
If there was a fire in your room and you had to take ten erotic comic albums with you, what would they be?
I’m a Milo Manara fan so I’d protect his albums. I hope it won’t happen 😛
Tell us about the greek foot lovers political party. Where do you think that you owe your numbers?
There is no real party, just a joke! But if it was, I surely could reach some toes up for my try (lol). I really love everything about women, not only their body. I like ’em totally, so I create cartoons and comics about women and pictures talking to them. That is the answer I think, cause it’s unusual a man creating so girly comics. I love learning from them, even as erotic subjects. I admire the female masturbation, the way they reach orgasms and off course their soles 🙂
Have you tried to promote your work outside greece?
Not so much, cause it’s always very greeky. I could try only as an illustrator.
What are your influences?
Great influence are women. My female friends. Technically Marcel Gottlib is my strongest influencer.
I ve read that you stopped working as a pharmacist in order to pursue your passion. Leaving your career for an art you love takes much courage. How did you decided to do that?
It was really hard to spend my life as a pharmacist. It would take more courage to be one for a lifetime.
Describe your ideal femdom fantasy.
I have no femdom fantasies! I never putted this fetish into my stories!
Is there a celebrity crush which you would draw a comic story?
Not at all in erotic art. I prefer common girls, real bodies, persons next door. You may come across my characters, just walking my city. They all live here. That’s my point! We all live into an erotic world. Not trying to be someone else. 🙂
