I was born in December, 1982, in Greece or, to be more specific, in Athens. In 2000, I studied web and graphic design at a private educational institution. It was there that I first learned about image processing and design programs. After I completed my military service in 2003, I took classes on how to build web pages using the flash program. I then found a job with a creative advertising agency called Zip Studio where I would work for several years.
Working there gave me the opportunity to further develop my skills as an illustrator since I was creating illustrated e-cards everyday. While I was working there, I also collaborated with some Greek, European and American magazines like FREE, MAXIM, MAX, ENNEA, SPORTY JR, WOW, GRAFISTAS&WEB DESIGN, SQUARE, ART SCENE INTERNATIONAL and others as well as with various advertising companies like Fortune S.A., ARC Worldwide, Vivartia, Goody's, Trends International, Pegasus Publishing S.A., Blue Gryphon Comics, Zenescope Entertainment and others as an illustrator.
I’ve been publishing two books “Digital Divas” & “Whoops! The Art of Elias Chatzoudis” by Sticker Chick.
