Demetris Panayides is a young self-taught artist from Nicosia and a huge fan of comics, movies and music. For the past eight years, he has been involved in illustration, logo and flyer design. Demetres notably designed the cover for local metal band Blynd’s first full-length album, titled ‘The Enemy’ and illustrated the mascot “Rusty Goblin” for the fantasy game workshop Isengard.
In 2014, Demetres was one of the ten runner-ups of a worldwide talent hunt held by American comics publisher Top Cow and this year, his first comic Artifacts: Lost Tales #1 was published through them. Furthermore, Demetres has illustrated another comic that will be published alongside the new album of well-known power metal band Winter’s Verge.
Currently, Demetres is working on various projects to be sent to publishing companies in the US. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours and we are confident that we will see more from him again before long!
Demetres will be one of our featured artists for the second time at this year’s Cyprus Comic Con and we are very excited to have him back with us. Are you looking forward to seeing more of Demetres’ work at the convention this year? Let us know in the comments below!
