Around three years ago Christina moved from Greece to New York City and has been pur­su­ing a free­lancer il­lus­tra­tor ca­reer ever since. She re­cently de­cided to put a larger fo­cus on her own, per­sonal projects with­out the in­flu­ence of a client be­cause, she says, it seems to be af­fect­ing her creativ­ity.

“I’ve al­ways been in­de­ci­sive when it comes to style and tech­niques,” Christina ad­mits, “but it’s so re­fresh­ing to me ev­ery time I pick up a new one any­way, so I to­tally rec­om­mend em­brac­ing it!”

In the spirit of try­ing things that are new, Christina re­cently took up play­ing the vi­o­lin to add yet an­other artis­tic string to her bow, so to speak.

1 Moon Sol­dier

“In­spi­ra­tion for the this piece was from a favourite anime (Sailor Moon – you can see this from the wand she is hold­ing) and the Jun­gian shadow. I some­times en­joy shin­ing my own per­sonal light on char­ac­ters that I’ve al­ways liked since I was a kid, and there­fore chang­ing their ar­che­typal char­ac­ter quite dra­mat­i­cally.”

2 Kiss

“Fan art based on the Korean TV se­ries Scholar Who Walks the Night.”

3 HolySnek

“Why Snek and not Snake? Well, be­cause he’s goofy look­ing!” This is a char­ac­ter de­sign I wanted to try with lots of con­trast.”

4 OinKnight

“I did this while go­ing through a ‘kids style il­lus­tra­tions’‚ phase. Th­ese ones come and go quite of­ten, so I have a lot of pieces that ex­hibit a sim­i­lar feel­ing.”
