WRITE CY Stories

Stories about and by local storytellers


This week's installation of Concept Sketches features the work of artist Ioanna Epaminondou, who is collaborating with writer Ifigenia Georgiou on Ifigenia's script LOST DAYS, about a disillusioned, middle-aged academic whose life is changed by a random meeting in a park. 

Next up: Constantinos Lopez Georgiou, illustrator of Electra Michaelidou's gothic rocker comic STEEL PUNCH. 

Countdown to Comic Con 2016: 3 months, 4 days


Initially, I read the script by writer Ifigenia Georgiou to gain an introduction to her visual representations for the comic. Then in collaboration with the writer we go through rough concept sketches. Once we finalize ideas I will transfer the images onto an A3 paper and start inking the outlines. I will then color with inks, watercolors, acrylics, and color pencils. The lettering with be digitally added in the end with the collaboration of colleagues.
