How often does an independent low budget, film have the chance to present its characters through the art of figurative sculpting! It is a luxury only the big budget movies tend to enjoy. Fantasy, horror, sci-fi blockbusters that is. 

The world of figurative sculpting fascinates million of movie fans around the world, who collect these modern pieces of art. We are super excited and happy to say that one the most talented creature and character sculptors in the world, George Tsougkouzidis, takes part in Whistle Project, as a contributor artist!

George is producing some of the most incredible collectible fantasy figures in this industry. The artistry of his work is only surpassed by the unique and energetic style in which he sculpts each of his figures and this gives his work a completely spontaneous and fresh aesthetic. 

Here's a short message from George:

"Hello. My name is George Tsougkouzidis and I’m a Freelance Creature and Character Artist from Thessaloniki, Greece. If you can’t pronounce my name, that’s okay. A lot of people have the same issue. The easiest way to pronounce it is ‘zoo-goo-zee-dis.’ We like to combine consonants in my native language but I’m sure it’s all Greek to you. Several years ago, my country was crippled by a terrible financial crisis that saw many of my friends lose their jobs. I was one of the lucky ones. While I lost my job as project manager in a really successful construction company, it made me realize that I spent too many days working from sunup to sundown. In 2014, with the support of my wife and my kids, I found opportunity in the crisis and began pursuing my childhood love of sculpting. I’ve been creating my own fantasy worlds ever since, telling stories with my bizarre and fearsome creatures and characters. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my experiences, it’s this… Don’t wait on your dreams. Go get them. If you believe in yourself, appreciate the hard work along the way and constantly work to improve yourself, you’ll never be a failure. Thank you to everyone who supports my art and follows me on my journey. I couldn’t have done this without you."
