Hello and welcome to my part of the woods!
My name is Vaggelis Ntousakis. I was born on the island of Crete, in Greece, where I still live and work. In 1990 I had a diving accident and since then I have been a quadriplegic.
Since a very early age, I have been fascinated by all things horror, weird and creepy. I used to spend hours losing myself in the paintings of Bosch, Goya and Bruegel. When I was eleven, a book of horror stories fell into my hands by chance. I discovered Robert E. Howard, Arthur Machen, August Derleth and others, but my biggest and most amazing discovery was the unique works of H.P. Lovecraft.
I had been drawing long before that but suddenly the bleak environments of Lovecraft’s stories, full of creepy crawly things, started to bleed into my childish pictures. I began to hunt everything fantastic be it in literature, movies, music, graphic novels and art in general. I fell in love with the 70s and 80s genre of splatter B-movies and the gorgeous stories of 2000AD like Slaine, Judge Dredd and the 13th Floor.
Fast forward a decade, I studied Graphics Design in Athens, moved back to Crete and started my own business in 2000. At the same time, all these years, I have been honing my illustration skills, taking on commissions along my personal projects. I have had a few years of traditional training before moving on to the digital medium.
So, if you want anything Horror, Fantasy or Sci-Fi related, send me an email and I will give you a quote depending on complexity, size and time required. Deadlines are not an issue. All paintings will be digitally made. If you want them printed and posted to you, there will be additional costs for printing, framing, packaging and shipping.
Thank you for visiting my website!
