Mills and Castles


Hello! Keeping the creativity promise as per 2015’s resolution and here is the latest illustration called ‘Mills and Castles’ and -inspired- by beauty that older buildings have. Also by mentioning some inspiration by warriors, nature, castles here is a contemporary version of a static vector building construction. Clean shapes and of course keeping it as colourful as ever!

Port Reconstruction


Here is one of my latest images called Port Reconstruction. I must admit that having moved to a city that also has a port with a bit of an industrial area around it too, has been a strong inspiration for this image in terms of incorporating some of the stylistic and building elements to this illustration.

Food In the City


Here is the new illustration I ‘ve made called Food In The City. Since I really enjoy food I have decided to create a visual exploration of combining some food and city like elements. Food explorations in cities are great, and there so much to discover with plenty of choice – but sometimes one can fall into the trap of eating ready – processed or fast foods and if not then continuously eating the same stuff over and over again because of busy schedules and limited time to cook or simply luck of time to think and experiment with something different etc. I reflect upon going into work and sometimes thinking I should grab a sandwich somewhere during lunch break, from where can I get it and what would it have inside? Do I want something hot to eat or just a cold sandwich to keep me going for the day? Another question is – oh why did I not prepare my lunch to take with me at work again the previous night or maybe was I a bit tired to think let alone to cook? Which cafe or sandwich place would be the best and reasonable one to choose? The choice has most of the times been a healthy one or not too harmful at least. The question and the exploration of trying quick foods in town seems almost like a playful moment during the day, where smells or looking at the food itself or simply getting a good vibe from a place guides me. So here is a food space playful with metropolitan aspects to it. Well enjoy your quick lunch wherever you are! 🙂 All work is copyright of Elli Chortara © 2013 All rights reserved.


A new illo just finished. Started on my sketchbook but as I was redesigning it digitally it took its final playful form it will also be available on a limited digital print format more details on that to come soon

Vehicle D

Vehicle D seems to be in a bit of a ‘temperament’ and probably there is a reason for that. This big beetle – like track has no time to waste. Indeed. Showing teeth will vent its feelings and then it will go on as normal doing a good job carrying all the things it is meant to be carrying!
