1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a 25 year old Greek-American living in Astoria, Queens. I'm aiming to be a School Counselor someday and have been trying to get into the public school system for the last two years as such. Recently I've begun to work as a substitute teacher (I'll have to see where that takes me). But like many my age I'm wondering just how perfect a fit these jobs are and if I'll be able to make it and be happy with them (it helps that I love working with students).

Artwise (and in general as a comics reader) I'm a huge fan of lesser known characters like Tomorrow Woman, Triumph, Simon Dark, Adam the Blue Marvel and so forth. I particularly have a love of android/gynoid or otherwise robotic characters.


2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite? 

My favorite piece will likely be for all time my Hourman #2 cover by Scott McDaniel and John Dell. It is also my first piece of original art and thus one I'll pretty much cherish for all time. Aside from having two characters I love together Hourman (Mathew Tyler) and Tomorrow Woman it'll always be a symbol of the great ideas that run through the comics industry. Where else could you find the story of an android questioning the meaning of his existence who decides to pluck a fellow robot from time and space before her death so he can meet her and discuss programming and the evil that robots seem to be programmed for?

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I've only been collecting art (sketches at first and later original art as well) since 2008. What truly prompted me to do so was the fun of attending comic conventions as I began to do at that time, as well as the realization that I could actually meet artists at the shows and even buy artwork (or commission it) from them.

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

Almost all of my art I've kept in Itoyas at my home due to a lack of space to display them. Someday I do hope to be able to display some around the home a bit, of course I'll have to have a home first! That's a ways off though but it's a dream to have.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

The cover of Action Comics #808 Featuring the Supergirl also known as Cir-El on her only solo cover appearance. As she's my favorite Supergirl I'd love to find this cover.

JLA #5 Any Pages Featuring Tomorrow Woman (Though particularly her first appearance on page 2). She's my favorite comic book character so pages of her first appearance are always something I'd love to see.

Superman #163 (1963) Pages Featuring Ajax the Wonderman. Ah, Wonderman. A forgotten Super Family character I'd love to see more of. Amusingly his origin and story is rather similar to the later Marvel Wonder Man.

Team Titans #1 Adam Hughes interior pages of the Redwing version of the issue. As a fan of the Team Titans, Redwing, and Adam Hughes I'd love art of this, her origin story.

Bloodbath #2 Page 33 I loved this little run in between the New Blood's Jamm, Hook, and Chimera meeting Flash.
