"Petite Marianna"

Where these beautiful comic drawings in "alchemies" category could have been rummaged? And this flowercalycha2 paxi - Copy
calyx? Let's find out!

2nd Rummaging 5/2014: I met Marianna Koutsipetsidi two years ago. From the first moment you see a beautiful, poised young person. This first impression was the reason that I was not surprised when I found out that Marianna has also a great marianna6talent; drawing. She particularly enjoys creating comics, since storytelling has always been one of her most beloved ways of expressing herself along with sketching. Marianna expresses through drawing since she was a little girl.

It was not a coincidence that in the age of 17, and with absolutely no training, she won the first place in the 7th Greek international competition of comic artists 2007, organized by "9" magazine of "Eleftherotipia" newspaper http://www.lifo.gr/mag/features/341. Following her dream, at 2011 she graduated from AKTO School, completing under full scholarship the program Sketch-Comics-Cartoon. 
A very small sample of her work is actually hosted hear, in "alchemies" page! http://calycha.com/index.php/en/alchemies 

marianna3Marianna has developed her own unique point of view through her art since she laid hands on a pencil. It is her way of observing all things and a way to self awareness as well- more like a way of living. When you are working with her you are firstly carried away by her enthusiasm. Then, methodically, she helps you to bring out your own ideas and then explains the way that she is going to express marianna4them with the best possible way. 

She has also illustrated the fairytaile "The gifts and the tears" by Olga Kotsirea. Through a touching collaboration with the author, a very beautiful and modern story was born, suitable for little –and ...bit older- dreamy girls.
