I feel the need to express in a few words what is the core of my illustrated stories. When it comes to books, I think the plot comes second. The most important element ,the soul of the story so to speak, is the atmosphere, the special magic contained in each story. If you take the time to see my illustrations, you ‘ll notice that each one is unique offering not only a visual interpretation of the story it intends to bring to life but also striving to be a work of art on its own. While you are on the site look at the pictures and you’ll know that is one hundred per cent true.
There are available many new illustrations that are not connected with any of my published books. You can find them all on Dreamstime. They can be used in many occasions like Valentine’s day, birthdays and baby showers. My username is “Tzamalidafni”.
The reason I started this site is above all else my wanting to communicate in a very straightforward, clear way the concepts and the reasons that exist behind my art and push me to get better and perfect myself in what I do. I wish to illuminate the secret of creating magical stories that evolve around the unexpected and the wonderful, but also stories entertaining the reader and helping him improve himself in the most profound way.
The first secret that I’d like to impart is that I never concentrate on the message of the story but build the plot based on images centered on beauty and beauty alone instead. If you concentrate on the message you’ll end up resembling a teacher that everybody listens to but nobody really likes. If you center your stories around images and pictures that you have in your mind serving an aesthetic purpose, the result will be more rewarding by far and well worth the effort you ‘ve put into it.
That’s my first and most basic post but others will follow. So keep reading!
