SEMI Digital Art Illustrations – Children’s Books


Greek version





Once upon a time


 John Kalokyris is a self-taught cartoonist and illustrator from Crete (Greece). His interests - apart from teaching and education - are the study of starry heavens and the mysteries of the Universe and of course the illustration and writing of children's books. Some of his works have been published in newspapers and magazines, and various of his paintings are in private collections.


Until 1998 he signed his works as JBG, but from then he uses the pseudonym  Arran. On this site you can see samples of his work and order books for children written and illustrated by himself.
