lollipops and cupcakes. Georgia, Zahari's creator and soul is full of creative ideas and now 
expanding to other creative areas such as handmade invitations and beautiful decorative soaps!

Lilla Rogers’ MATS Bootcamp March assignment

Hello friends! Although March was definitely a very busy month, 
I did found some time for my Lilla Rogers Bootcamp assignment.
Here is what I created for the Jello pattern topic!
It was a hard -much harder than I though it would be- but yet a fun assignment to do. 
I really love patterns and although I want to ad some to my portfolio I had no time to create any. 
So this was a great opportunity to do some new fun personal work.

The original inked illustration I made. From hand drawn to vector!

My shutterstock portfolio

A few months ago I realized that I had a really good number of personal illustrations 
(like the one in this post) as well as some old or rejected images that I was not using any more. 
So I made this portfolio to bring these images back into the light! 
I think having your work available for sale on microstock sites (like shutterstock, fotolia etc) 
is a good idea, in spite of the fact that these sites don't pay as much as I think they should.
You still get to expose your work to (more) potential customers, motivates you to practice 
more (so you can upload more images), show you unique art style, and maybe, if you 
are lucky (like Alex MathersGoogle will hire you!!!

Ζωγραφίζω, παίζω και μαθαίνω την αλφαβήτα / I paint, I play and I 'm learning the alphabet

Το φθινόπωρο του 2011, δύο χρόνια πριν, είχα μια ιδέα για ένα βιβλίο δραστηριοτήτων. 
Ηθελα ένα βιβλίο με πολλές λέξεις και πλούσιο σε εικόνες. 
Ενα βιβλίο που να μπορεί να το χαρεί ένα παιδάκι μόνο του αλλά να μπορεί να του το διαβάσει ευχάριστα ο γονίος. Που να είναι απλό και καλοσχεδιασμένο χωρίς όμως να είναι ακριβό! Που να έχει εναν εκπαιδευτικό σκοπό. Ενα βιβλίο που θα ήθελα να έχω και να το βλέπω μαζί με τα πιτσιρίκια μου! Eνα βιβλίο που δεν μπορούσα να το βρω πουθενά!
Κάπως έτσι ξεκίνησα να το οργανώνω και σιγά-σιγά να το εικονογραφώ και να το σχεδιάζω. Κάποιοι από τους στενούς μου φίλους το είδαν και με βοήθησαν με τη γνώμη τους...
 Το πρώτο μου βιβλίο, "Ζωγραφίζω, παίζω και μαθαίνω την αλφαβήτα", κυκλοφορεί από σήμερα από τις εκδόσεις Πατάκη!
Είναι ένα παιδικό βιβλίο δραστηριοτήτων, 56 σελίδων για παιδιά προσχολικής ηλικίας (4+).
Πρόκειται για ένα αλφαβητάρι που σκοπός του είναι να βοηθήσει τα παιδιά να εξοικειωθούν με την αναγνώριση των γραμμάτων, να χρωματίσουν σε οργανωμένο χώρο, να παίξουν με τα γράμματα και τις εικόνες και τελικά να έχουν μια δημιουργική πρώτη επαφή με τα γράμματα της ελληνικής γλώσσας.
υ.γ. ενα αντίτυπο-δωράκι σύντομα!

Almost 2 years ago, in the autumn of 2011 I had an idea for an activity book.
I was looking for a book with lots of words and images. A book that a kid and a parent would enjoy discovering and reading. A simple and well designed book but without being expensive! Αn educational book.
A book that I would love to have and read it along with my kids! A book that I couln't find anywhere!
So I started planning it and soon after illustrating and designing it. Some of my closest friends gave me their opinion and comments about the book...
 My first book, "I paint, I play and I am learning the alphabet",  just got published today by Patakis Publications56 pages activity book, for preschool children (4 +).
It's an alphabet book whose aim is to help children learn the forms of the greek letters, while painting in a designated area, playing with the alphabet and pictures and finally have a creative
first contact with the letters of the Greek language.
p.s. a giveaway really soon!
