My 30 Illustrations That Show The Undiscovered Life Of Drinks
Hello! I'm Teo Zirinis (aka HandsOffMyDinosaur) and I'm an illustrator from Greece that likes to draw quirky visual puns.
A big part of my creative process is to look at objects and try to see them from a different perspective. I imagine them coming to life and dealing with various funny, silly, or relatable situations.
In this collection of images, I illustrated the secret life of drinks. Whether it's wine, coffee, or cocktails, drinks are a big part of our everyday lives, and they have been a great source of inspiration for many of my cartoons. Here they are getting into all sorts of adventures and shenanigans. I hope you enjoy them!
I was drawing and doodling ever since I was a kid. All my school books were full of silly sketches and comics. Drawing has always felt like an escape and I've always loved that feeling it gave me of being immersed in my own little world. However, for most of my early adult life, art was only a hobby I had on the side. During that time, I started participating in t-shirt design competitions and discovered various websites that allowed me to sell and showcase my work.
The more time passed, the more I felt like being an illustrator and a designer was what I would like to do, and I kept working towards that goal. I did briefly explore other forms of art before university, but illustrations and comics were always what I loved the most.
After studying abroad (in the UK) some years ago, I returned back to Greece and haven't left since. I can definitely say that it's a great source of inspiration. The wonderful weather, the food, the traditional markets, the creative scene that is a mixture of modern and classical culture are all things that stimulate my creative process.
I've always been a daydreamer, and I've always had a very vivid imagination. I find it interesting and funny to look at objects, food, and drinks and imagine them as living beings, with their own stories to tell, their own adventures.
Silly ideas sort of pop up in my head (usually at the weirdest times). I write them down and do quick sketches of most of them. I then work on the ones I like best until I'm happy with the end result. I'm also a big fan of wordplay, so if I can throw a pun in there as well, I'm all the happier!
