EVA DOLGYRA - Born and raised in Athens, Greece. Graduated in 2011 from the Glasgow School of Art, with a BA(Hons) in Visual Communication.

Now based in Glasgow, working as a Graphic Designer by day and Freelance Illustrator by night.

My influences cover a wide spectrum both thematically and geographically, with a particular fondness for themes touching on the strange, the bizarre and the imaginary.

Often reflected in my work is my soft spot for traditional printmaking; however I believe there is a right tool for each job and enjoy using my laptop just as much as I do a chisel.

The Complete and Updated Guide to the Apocalypse.

Hand-printed on a letterpress, using linocuts for the imagery and polymer plates for the type.

I’ve always found the ever-present predictions about the end of the world fascinating. To the present day, humanity has survived hundreds of “Apocalypses” and seen many doomsday warnings fall short, resulting in us putting on a dvd of ‘Independence Day’ just to make up for the anticlimax of yet another failed alien invasion prediction.

Seeing the humorous side of things, I produced work that merged informational pamphlets - produced historically in times of turmoil the world over - and the Book of Revelations. This book offers advice for when the Apocalypse comes.


.. and it will.






"The prophecies were right. We are living in the end of times. So what will you do when the day comes? Do you have a survival plan for your family? With little time left for survival, knowing how to prepare for the Apocalypse is essential. DOMA is here to offer you the ultimate life insurance; a few simple precautions will guarantee you a feeling of peace in the face of devastation and will ensure that you and your loved ones have a place in the next generation."


- Excerpt from ‘The Updated & Complete Guide to the Apocalypse’.




"Apocalyptic imagery and themes
tend to increase
at times of social change
and widespread uncertainty...”





"To create
a people aware
of the fragility
of human
civilization.”




- Excerpts from ‘Anime From Akira
to Howl's Moving Castle’
, pages 250 & 253.













ἀποκάλυψις:


(apokálupsis, “revelation”)
Ancient Greek



Literally meaning "uncovering",
from ἀπό (apó, “after”)
and καλύπτω (kalúptō, “I cover”).



"An apocalypse is a disclousure
of something hidden
from the majority of mankind
in an era dominated by
falsehood and misconception."



- Wikipedia.


(of revelation:)

"It’s about
transformation & renewal.

It’s certainly
nothing as simplistic as
the end of the world.”



- John Mayor Jenkins.
