Designer and Animator

HELLO, I’M KOSTA AND THIS IS MY ANIMATION PORTFOLIO.

I’ve recently enrolled in the Animation Mentor program and will be updating this website with my work along with my previous designs and animations.

About Me

A few things about me from my love of the Simpsons, my hatred of McDonald's, to my obsessions with zombies.

About Me

Part zombie expert; part ‘Nothing But Synth’ band member; part karaoke rapper; when the kids in the playground wanted to be Schwartenegger, I wanted to be Marty McFly; Full Geek. Will work for food.

I was born at a very young age in Australia in 1980 and I’m proud to be one of the very few Greeks to have left home before the age of 40. I’ve been living in London since 2006 and have aspirations of being a 3D animator in the film industry. I’m also a champion thumb wrestler.

When I offer people chocolate, I offer the flavours I don’t like. I’m a passionate Liverpool supporter and tend to rant a lot when we lose and when I see a McDonald’s sign. I love all things Simpsons.

Do you want to change your name to Homer Junior? The kids can call you Ho-Ju.

Just once I’d like someone to call me ‘Sir’ without adding ‘You’re making a scene.’

I also like to think that I’m well prepared for an eventual zombie apocalypse. I’d be thoroughly disappointed if I don’t make it past the first day.

 

Portfolio / Inspiration

Some work I have done over the years and all future work. I get inspiration from everything around me and it translates into all my designs and animations.

Primarily the challenges involved in my animation studies amongst other things. No doubt there will be ranting within this section.

There comes a time in a man’s life where he must grow up and show the world what a mature, responsible adult he has become. I am not one of those people. I’m still yet to hit that point in my life. Nor do I want to. If there’s one thing animation has taught me […]

There’s a great scene from Thank You For Smoking when Aaron Eckhart asks Rob Lowe’s character quite an innocent question. “Jack; when do you sleep?” “Sunday.” And that has been the summary of my life during my studies. I’m now half way through my first semester and its been been filled with double espressos and […]

I’m a student again! It’s something I’ve been wanting to do and have been putting off for the last 5 years. Even just before I put in my application, I was still not so sure about it. I’d be putting my life back on hold again for 2 years and the commitment means I’d need […]

I don’t get what their role is. I like to think I’ve reached a mental age where I can demonstrate the basic co-ordination to turn on a tap… But there he is, the trusty bathroom attendant. He has his little stool he sits on, right by the door. Little bow tie and waistcoat. An assortment […]

The psychiatrists of the fast food world have managed to piss me off yet again. Upon viewing their latest pretentious commercial I gather all estranged fathers around the country have now thought ‘if only I took my son to McDonald’s maybe we wouldn’t be in this bizarre cats in the cradle situation?’… To all estranged […]
