Meet Your Creator

Hello there!
My name is Dimitris, “Dimi”, Pantazis and I’m a full time freelance illustrator. Having a scientific background (my major was Physics and I even taught for a few years), I learned how to view all aspects of my life as a problem solving opportunity. A few years back I decided to pursue an art career and follow the dream. I strongly believe that everyone can develop their skills and styles if they are are dedicated enough and know how to tackle their creative process in such a way that gives the best results. Teaching is not a new thing to me and I’m very happy to be able to share all the knowledge I have piled up in my head!
