:heart: Οι σελίδες της σειράς Bleeding Hearts που συνδημιουργούσα με τον Σπύρο Δερβενιώτη για περίπου δύο χρόνια για το περιοδικό Γκραν Γκινιόλ, αυξήθηκαν επικίνδυνα και έγιναν ένα 64σέλιδο άλμπουμ.

'Ετοιμο, ζεστό και αχνιστό απ' το τυπογραφείο επιτέλους, θα πρωτοπαρουσιαστεί στο comicdom con αυτό το Σαββατοκύριακο.

Όσοι δεν μπορέσετε να έρθετε στο con μπορείτε να βρείτε το άλμπουμ σε βιβλιοπωλεία και comic book stores από τις 23/04/2010.

Αντιγράφω το δελτίο τύπου της Jemma Press:


:heartbreaker: 13+1 ΙΣΤΟΡΙΕΣ ΒΓΑΛΜΕΝΕΣ ΑΠΟ ΤΑ ΣΠΛΑΧΝΑ ΤΗΣ ΚΟΛΑΣΗΣ… :chainsaw:

Αναρωτηθήκατε ποτέ τι συμβαίνει στον 13ο όροφο ενός ξενοδοχείου; Μέχρι πού μπορεί να φτάσει ένα κορίτσι για την αγάπη του πατέρα της; Τι μπορεί να κάνετε τα "άχρηστα" αντικείμενα που κατά καιρούς μαζεύετε; Ή τι τελικά συνέβη στην Fay Wray;

O Σπύρος Δερβενιώτης και η Αλέξια Οθωναίου απαντούν σε αυτά και σε πολλά άλλα μακάβρια ερωτήματα μέσα σ' αυτήν τη σκοτεινή συλλογή που κρατάτε στα χέρια σας. Καθίστε αναπαυτικά και ανάψτε όλα τα φώτα μήπως και μπορέσετε να κρατήσετε το σκοτάδι που ξεχύνεται μέσα από τις σελίδες του Bleeding Hearts και προσπαθεί να σας ρουφήξει. Κλειδώσατε την πόρτα; Ακούσατε κάτι από την κουζίνα; Το μυαλό παίζει περίεργα παιχνίδια. Όπως και η καρδιά άλλωστε…

Η Αλέξια Οθωναίου και ο Σπύρος Δερβενιώτης θα βρίσκονται στο περίπτερο της Jemma Press, το Σάββατο 17/4 (16:00-18:00) & την Κυριακή 18/4 (14:00-16:00), στο Comicdom Con Athens 2010 (16,17,18 Απριλίου στην Ελληνοαμερικανική ένωση, Μασσαλίας 22 Αθήνα), για να υπογράψουν αντίτυπα του Bleeding Hearts.

Τα πρώτα εκατό αντίτυπα θα περιέχουν art print υπογεγραμμένο από τους δημιουργούς. :heart:

Ρε παιδιά, τι πράγμα είναι αυτό με τα δακρυγόνα;

Πέρασα σήμερα από εξάρχεια και από κάποια ώρα και μετά ένιωθα εξαντλημένη, έτσουζαν τα μάτια μου και είχα ταχυπαλμία χωρίς να ξέρω γιατί. Πολύ αργότερα θυμήθηκα τα δακρυγόνα και έκανα τη σύνδεση.

Δεν τα φτιάχνουν όπως παλιά...

Έλεος πια με αυτή την τρομοκρατία.

Αφήστε και το άλλο...Κάθε φορά που βγαίνω απ'το σπίτι, αναγκάζομαι να παίρνω μαζί ολόκληρο sack voyage. Δεν έφτανε να κουβαλάω μαζί λαπτοπ, γραφίδες, πορτοφόλια, τσιγάρα και κλειδιά, τώρα έχω και ένα σωρό άλλα πράγματα. Απολυμαντικό μπουκαλάκι για τις ιώσεις (που μας έχουν κάνει πλύση εγκεφάλου πως κυκλοφορούνε), μια πλαστική σακούλα για να βάζω μέσα τις αποδείξεις (γιατί αλλιώς τις πετάω από συνήθεια), μαντίλι για τα δακρυγόνα (δεν ξέρεις ποτέ που μπορεί να τους βιδώσει να τα ρίξουνε) οδοντόβουρτσα και έξτρα εσώρουχα γιατί εσύ έφυγες απ'το σπίτι μεν, αλλά θα καταφέρεις να γυρίσεις, δε; Ξαφνικά συνειδητοποιείς οτι δεν έχει συγκοινωνίες (πάλι) και το έχεις ξεχάσει. Αναγκαστικά διανυκτερεύεις σε φιλικό σπίτι. Να μην έχεις να αλλάξεις;

Όπως έλεγε και ο Ντίνος Ηλιόπουλος "Ωραία παρέα είμαστε! Μια ευχάριστη ατμόσφαιρα..."

:butterfly: Στις 16 Μαρτίου, γίνεται η παρουσίαση του βιβλίου του Γιώργου Χατζηστεργίου "Σου έχει μείνει καθόλου περιουσία;" ( εκδόσεις Αλεξάνδρεια ). Έχω σχεδιάσει το εξώφυλλο, καθώς και μερικές εικόνες για το εσωτερικό. fc88.deviantart.com/fs42/f/200… Το βιβλίο ειναι εξαιρετικό κατά τη γνώμη μου και σχεδόν προφητικό, λαμβάνοντας υπόψιν την παρούσα κοινωνική και οικονομική κατάσταση της χωρας μας:

"Ενώ η Ελλάδα μαστίζεται από μία πρωτοφανή κρίση και οι άνθρωποι αρχίζουν να φοβούνται στ' αλήθεια μήπως κατρακυλήσουν από τον παράδεισο της μικρομεσαίας ευημερίας στην κόλαση της φτώχειας, μια Νέα Μεγάλη Ιδέα σκάει ξαφνικά και διαδίδεται σαν τη σπίθα που βάζει φωτιά στον ξερό κάμπο: για να ξανάρθουν τα λεφτά, οι Έλληνες θα γκρεμίσουν τα σπίτια και τα μαγαζιά τους, τις εκκλησίες και τα γήπεδα, πρώτα στην Αθήνα κι έπειτα σε ολόκληρη τη χώρα, για να τα ξαναχτίσουν από την αρχή - όπως έγινε μετά τον Πόλεμο!

Η Νέα Μεγάλη Ιδέα γίνεται προεκλογικό σύνθημα, εμπλέκεται σε ενδοκυβερνητικές ραδιουργίες, φτιάχνει και χαλάει καριέρες, ανοίγει και κλείνει πόρτες σε ξένους επιχειρηματικούς ομίλους. Στη δίνη της στροβιλίζονται πολλές μικρότερες ιδέες, όνειρα και επιδιώξεις: ο πρωθυπουργός θέλει να μείνει στην Ιστορία, η Υπουργός Καθαριότητας να γίνει πάμπλουτη, ο πρωθυπουργικός σύμβουλος να δοξαστεί - ενώ η κοπέλα του πολύ θα ήθελε να γνωρίσει έναν άλλον, έναν πραγματικό άντρα...

Στην κορύφωση των εξελίξεων, ο πρωθυπουργός απευθύνεται σε μια λαοθάλασσα στην Πλατεία Συντάγματος και αναγγέλλει το βομβαρδισμό της Αθήνας από την Πολεμική Αεροπορία ενόψει της Νέας Ανοικοδόμησης. Έτσι ανοίγει διάπλατα ο δρόμος προς ένα μέλλον όπου η πραγματικότητα μπλέκει επικίνδυνα με τη φαντασία και απ' όπου θα προκύψει μια Ελλάδα τόσο καινούρια, που μόνο τα σύνορα θα θυμίζουν την παλιά."

Η συνεργασία με τον συγγραφέα τον οποίο μέχρι τότε δεν γνώριζα, ήταν ιδανική και νομίζω πως θα γίνει σημείο αναφοράς για όλες τις μελλοντικές μου συνεργασίες. :D

Για όποιον ενδιαφέρεται, η παρουσίαση γίνεται στο Ξενοδοχείο ΑΜΑΛΙΑ, Λεωφόρος Αμαλίας 10, Σύνταγμα, ΑΘΗΝΑ, τλφ. 210-3237300 τη Δευτέρα 16 Μαρτίου 2009 και ώρα 7.00 μ.μ.

Θα μιλήσουν: Μανώλης Γλέζος, Μαρία Ιατρού ( Φιλόλογος ), Αντώνης Νουκάκης ( Αρχιτέκτων )



:butterfly: Θα είμαι και εγώ στην Αθήνα εκείνες τις μέρες οπότε αν σας έλειψα μπορείτε απλά να περάσετε για να πείτε ένα καλησπέρα :)

It's nice to see snow again! It has the tendency to cover everything, no matter how flawed and ugly, with it's bright, white, soft texture and make it look like Christmas morning. Here's some pics alexiaothonaiou.blogspot.com/2…

Yep, it's getting harder and harder to work...

Some children's book stuff im working on alexiaothonaiou.blogspot.com/2…


p.s. I thought that only in a third world country like Greece everything paralyzes when the weather goes  extreme. Well, nope, it happens in the other countries ass well.

I decided to eventually break my silence and wish everyone a happy new year!

Truth is I wasn't really in a festive mood, so writing dark gloomy journals would just ruin it for everyone else too :heartbreaker:

Im glad 2008 is gone, it was a good year in terms of creativity, I started some new collaborations, made some images I really like, but in a personal level it was a really tough year. There were of course good moments, but the bad things that happened kind of shaded everything else. I wish this year is more joyful and light, and I wish mental and physical health and creativity to everyone!

Lately I was working on some uni project about modern gods and godesses. Here's some of them directors-cat.deviantart.com/a… directors-cat.deviantart.com/a…. The Christmas windows I made for the Sarafis shops around Greece actually looked kinda cool, unfortunately I don't have any pictures. The novel I illustrated came out but hasn't be presented yet, I"ll say more about it soon. Apart from that I'm still working on "Bleeding Hearts" stories for grand Guignol magazine, and by the way the new issue is out with a 4 page story I drew and Spuros D. wrote. directors-cat.deviantart.com/a… directors-cat.deviantart.com/a…
Last but not least, Spuros D. and I are collaborating for a story for this year's Vavel exhibition. 4.bp.blogspot.com/_oabXhYmIb1o… 3.bp.blogspot.com/_oabXhYmIb1o…

Yep, it's been a while since my last journal! I truly haven't been  very net-sociable lately...
Truth is that the last three months have been a real m*th&rf^ck$r but they say it usually gets worst before it gets better. And it is getting better, apart from the terrible heat which is slowing me down and the fact that with summer vacations an'all ahead I'm  being easily distracted.

Currently I'm working on window store decoration for a couple of stores (4 Christmas, isn't that surreal?), on a script for Grand Guignol magazine and I'm trying to figure out how Illustrator works. On the same time I'm working on several oil paintings...I haven't done traditional painting for some time but it's working out really great.

Grand Guignol #2 is finally out and there are two "Bleeding Hearts" stories in it, one is written by me and drawn by Spyros D. and the other one visa versa. Buy it, it's a great investment for your summer holidays, a real chick-magnet ;)

I should be getting back to work!

Great holidays to y'all!

Hey everyone! :D

I had a great weekend spending most of both days at the Comicdom Con, hanged around and chatted with many of you, drunk a lot of coffee, smoked more than I should, bought some comics, got inspired, and eventually got very very tired.

I would hope to have some of my new work in the fest, but unfortunately the printing of Grand Guignol #2 was delayed...

The guys from comicdom did a great job, gave us the opportunity to attain a few good workshops and generally worked their asses off so we could have in Greece something close to the comic festivals in the States and in Europe. Thank you comicdom crowd!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

The "Draw the World Together" sketching session was fun, here you can see some of my sketches. directors-cat.deviantart.com/a… directors-cat.deviantart.com/a… directors-cat.deviantart.com/a…

Curently im working on the 8th page of a 9 page story called "A Disease of it's own kind"...When im done with that I''ll have to start another story for Grand Guignol and Para Pente magazine.

The weather is getting better and I feel spring all over the place!!!!

Have a great week people!!

grrrrmmmmmmfffff........

I was feeling very proud of myself for not being sick for more than a year and then ta-taaaaaaaa! here I am feeling weak, my throat soar and my head burning. I hate being sick , I just hope I could just sleep until I am healthy again.

I can still blame it on :icondevine-tentacle: or :iconsergiokomic: who were sick last week of course....a bit of voo-doo black magic never really hurt anyone...

I want to continue working on the projects I was working on before I got sick. For some reason I really don't feel creative when im ill.

The first 3 people who read this journal will be sick next!

You can of course copy it and post it in your own journal just for revenge. And then it will spread like a disease and everyone will be sick! NIAHAHAHAHA :evillaugh:

Hello everyone!

I haven't been very active in here lately cause I was kinda busy and kinda can't-be-internet-bothered..

It's getting really cold in my apartment the last three days, and without having any gas yet for the heeting, im working at my mac and im constantly feeling that my fingers are gonna fall off...
I guess though im happy it's getting colder, I cant imagine christmas with people walking in the streets with t-shirts and shorts. Talking of christmas, Im curently working on a two page comic for the christmas issue of Para Pente magazine. I wanted it to be cute and fuzzy and I think it is at least a bit, (just for a change!) hope that other people will think the same when they see it.

Im also working on a series of comic strips 'Tales of the City' for Athens Voice newspapper. Already about 5 strips published, 3 more completed and ready to go and ill do some more soon..

The new Grand Guignol#1 www.comicart.gr/bb06/viewtopic… is out, were I drew a 4page comic 'Uneasy Riders'/ Bleeding Hearts directors-cat.deviantart.com/a… (script by S.Derveniotis). G.Matalas another greek artist also created a couple of pages for the magazine that in my opinion look amazing..

Also the November issue of Para Pente magazine is out, were ive done a two page comic 'Apogeuma sto metro' in color (script by T.Tasis) directors-cat.deviantart.com/a…

see ya soon ;)
