A few weeks ago I posted some truly amazing examples of aeronautical artwork by Greek artist Kostas Kavvathias. The reaction to Kostas artwork was as I anticipated very positive and there was demand for more samples of his artistry and enquiries as to whether or not Kostas had a website.
I am pleased to be able to report that Kostas has now got his website up and running and it's well worth a visit as you will be able to get much more of a feel for the way that Kostas creates his stunning artwork - it's all done by hand folks - as well as a bit more on the story of how and why Kostas became so determined to pursue his career as an aviation artist par excellence.
It's worth mentioning that while Kostas is kept busy providing superb artwork for kit manufacturers such as Trumpeter and Hobby Boss, not to mention The Greek Air Force, he is keen to explore new markets. As he is a long time fan of the supremely talented Ian Kennedy (in fact it was seeing Ian's work in the pages of Air Ace Picture Library and Commando comics that was an added spur to Kostas own determination to pursue a career in art) it would be great to see him tackle some Commando covers.
Here in the meantime are some reminders of Kostas aviation art and here is a link to his website.
