Costas Lakis is one of my most important mentors in my life and my constant artistic development. I've met him before some years ago while I was doing my work placement as a junior art in an ad agency. He was my creative director at that moment and the person who helped me learn to love all the mess my mind constantly had been due to the overdose of information i was taking from work, school, books and generally life. He even encouraged me to transform this mess in images or words and in a way He is the one that showed me the way for developing my love for image making and fragments of words in my illustration as self expression and carrier.

He is a very good friend of mine and hope i will have the luxury to enjoy his friendship for the years that will follow.

He is a great poet, artist, painter, designer, scenographer, art lover, philosopher, day dreamer, theater writer and the most important a very special friend. I would be in his art exhibition opening on tuesday hoping to get new inspiration and refreshing breath for life.

Yesterday evening

Yesterday I attended at the opening event party of the Apples to Zebras e-shop. I was happy to meet lots of new people and get to know better some of the fellow designers who participate with their works too. I really enjoyed the works of Paul Sarz and I was really lucky to meet him personally. He is a very passionate and delicate craftsman and his delicate jewels seem to get life from his own cabinet of beautiful curiosities.
