Thanasis Toumbidis


As a child, I never used to have a camera, so sketching was a way to illustrate the world around me. Since then, I’ve been evolving this skill and sketching became my way of expression. During the last 35 years, you may have seen my sketches on posters, brochures, magazines, flyers, coffee mugs and T-shirts. I’ve also published two comic books. My work shows the funny side of reality, of everyday life, though someone with sharper eye could distinguish hidden details in my sketches. All in all, I never made it to a famous photographer, and sketching is the reason.
