what's up...

January 10, 2018

This is how it started

Some sketches are a remake of an orchestra I illustrated long time ago.
Now it looks more expressive, more black lines and no color. Drawn with markers on white heavy paper... man, I used dozens of them by now. :-)

February 14, 2018

The orchestra

First sales with various T-shirts.
A new experience with online sales at a commercial site. Uploading my illustrations on the internet, after someone chooses the theme, pays and then will be printed by this provider and shipped. They can even choose the color of the shirt. The style, etc. I don't know the quality of the shirts, never had the fabric or the print-result in my hands. So this is not really what I wanted to do.

Zorba - The Greek
Sirtaki vs Hasapiko

Greek themes came in my mind... donkeys, cats, Gods, typical Greek scenes. The name 'Ble Mati Collection' versus '100% Greek’. My friend insisted on 100% Greek as a name… and … 100% GREEK was born!

March 01, 2020

Before

And this new idea of opening an atelier-shop on Serifos came up. What a coincidence, the place we found has the name Zorba.

Sketches

Some ideas how it could look like after. Will post a photo of the result.

More locals

Printing, printing and printing. All by hand.

A tired model

Dickie sleeping next to the drying fabrics. Nice ego booster... 100 bags with his face printed on them.

Renovation ... restauration... ?

Turquoise, salted caramel, Minoan red and ice white... So much time and effort, but really nice result, isn't it?

July 27, 2020

After

And how it finally looked like! After many weeks of hard work, the place is got into a new shape.
Nice design, nice colors! Love it!!

Décor

Still trying to find the best spot for it... On the floor in the corner? Ot hanging it off the ceiling? Love these little stars when it turns!

Daily life

This cute donkey passes by everyday. Actually, it's three of them. Always wearing nice jewelry and always up for a warm greeting. Could not resist drawing them and printing them on my bags! So cute!

E.T.

Is this E.T.? The little alien who came on our planet in the 80s? This rock is a part of the Cyclops' throne (Psaropyrgos). E.T. and the Cyclops have something in common... they are both from a different world. If they existed...

October 10, 2020

Blonds have more fun...lol

Strolling around in the fields, sitting at Psaropyrgos looking at Mega Livadi with a bird's eye on the view and finally watching the incredible sunset! A MUST GO!

Peekaboo

Would you expect coming to a kafeneio and finding a mini market in there? Such a cosy place and friendly owner! I spent a whole afternoon there.

June 21, 2021

Making of... part II

The result is amazing though! Loooots of new shirts. Some new designs, some men shirts and more sizes.

Caught in the act.

July 11, 2021

Many, many, many pouches...

The lion sleeps tonight

Do you see the lion? Head up, paws in front. When the sun goes down, the fading light and shades make it even look like he sleeps. This mountain I named 'lion' on the hand drawn map. Majestically he sits on top of a mountain watching the bay in front.

Natura

Serifos is everywhere! Is this my imagination oder does it look like Serifos? Does someone made this or did the wall in turn of times became like this? Incredible! A Serifos map on the harbor wall!

Remember Twiggy?

There was a time all women wanted to look like her...
and went on crazy diets. Twiggy was a legend in the 60s and this bust is dedicated to her. After a consistent search of 2 years I found it! Original. Vintage. Mint condition! And so she moved to Serifos.

July 24, 2021

In good company

Found this guy at a fleamarket. Good match with Twiggy. Okay, they have a diffence in age, but never mind.

We're all made of stars...

Studio 54. I must admit I am totally in love with... this discoball!
Look at the stars and diamonds on the wall! And the colors and the designs. It feels like this little place is embracing you with warmth (beside the hot temperatures outside).

August 01, 2021

Mmmm...

"Mmm..." translated into English means "Yummy". Pannacotta with blueberries. Nothing better than that in the heat of August! Couldn't resist taking a foodie photo. I wasn't only 'mmm...', it also came with nice ceramic bowl and perfectly suited for a photo.

Greek Kafeneio

Have you ever been to a traditional Greek kafeneion? It is a mix between going out and being/feeling at home. Go once, you are a tourist. Go twice, you see probably people you have seen before. Go again, you are part of the 'parea' or 'family'. No need to order, the owner knows. Coffee in the morning or a glass of wine or tsipouro at night. It's is an atmosphere which you ONLY find in Greece.

David Bowie eyes

What a cat! He has one blue and one green eye. He showed up today first time at the parking at Chora. Sad enough, he is a young stray and roams around finding food or even a home. Maybe someone would like to adopt him? He's adorable!

Plateia Ano Chora

Isn't this the most beautiful plateia of the Cycladic islands? Bathed in bright light in spring. Lively, colorful and busy in summer. Relaxing and windy in autumn. Quiet and sunny in winter. And all year around it has the same pittoresque charm.

September 09, 2021

Greek autumn starting

See you soon again!
