Where fairytales meet with comics, the FairyTellers meet with the FairyBeardman!

A short while before the publication of their new collaboration, storytellers Antonia Velliou, Vassilia Vaxevani and Ifigenia Kakridoni, along with illustrator Dimitris Kasdaglis, invite our youngest friends to discover the magic of comics, through a very special and highly creative fairytale narration.

Dimitris Kasdaglis was born in Athens in 1980. He’s a children’s books illustrator and comics creator. He studied Visual Communication at the University of Central England in Birmingham and completed his studies with a masters degree in narrative illustration with a scholarship by the the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation. His work has been awarded and acclaimed in competitions and exhibitions in Greece and abroad. In recent years, in collaboration with Comicdom, he’s worked as an illustrator in various projects and workshops for children and educators, in Greece and Cyprus. He’s also teaching comics creation classes to children and teenagers, and has had seminars and also presented his work at the Graphic Designers Association and the comics conventions Comicdom Con Athens and AthensCon.

As with all events taking place in the Hellenic American Union, no one will be allowed to enter this event without a vaccination or disease certificate (for adults) or a self test statement (for minors).
