My name is Costis Papatheodorou and I am an Athens based Greek artist. I started working as an art director in ad agencies for international and regional clients. I soon realized that what I really wanted was to become an illustrator. I did and I have been working as one for the last 15 years. My illustrations have been featured as cover, interior pieces and tutorials for Newsweek int. edition, L’ Echo des Savanes and Photoshop Creative magazine. Besides working as an advertising illustrator, I also find great joy in painting portraits and caricatures.
