Sofia honored by the Greek Design and Illustration Awards
In recognition of her contribution to the arts, Sofia Zarabouka was presented with a lifetime achievement award at the 2015 Greek Design and Illustration Awards.
Sofia has become well-known through her adaptations of ancient stories by Aristophanes, Euripides, and Homer, transforming them into captivating illustrated children’s books. From the Olympian gods and goddesses to Alexander the Great to the Parthenon Marbles, her works all share a desire to present timeless classics to younger generations.
That’s why today Sofia is bringing her characters to life in the Ithacan Mythologies series of mobile games. Developed in the belief that children should encounter the Greek gods and heroes as characters to play—and that learning this way helps children discover the great figures of myth as living personalities—Ithacan Mythologies games empower children to share in the experiences of the greatest adventurers of all time. We at Ithacan look forward to making games that will be as cherished by the next generation of learners as Sofia’s books have now been to generations of their readers.
