Welcome to Littermature!
“Take it as you will, for I can only hope another soul may find solace through these fragmented words.”
-G. Kourtesiotis, 2016.
I fully embrace your presence as I wish you the greatest journey forward in your own personal development– whomever you are.
My hope is that something significant finds you here within Littermature’s walls in the pursuit of growth.
If you want to learn a little bit more about what Littermature stands for, just read through the segments below– or don’t, don’t let me tell you what to do.
Happy reading if you choose to.
My name is George Kourtesiotis.
I kickstarted Littermature as a means of personal expression as I have been journaling thoughts, poems, lost words, doodles, and art since 2012. As my notebooks filled in over the years, I began expanding my thoughts into more detailed writing and creative exploits to exemplify the essence of my own human experience.
As a result, my store is filled with items that I have either designed, or crafted myself that further express the motifs that are exemplified in my writings or posts.
Though my words and drawings can be dark or cynical at times, I always like to maintain that little shimmer of hope that carries me through the days. All in all, I believe that WE ALL HAVE THE CAPACITY FOR GREATNESS— if we choose it.
This is Littermature’s BLOG. I don’t force creativity because things work better for me and my expression when I let things come about under their own accord.
The HUMAN Experience is my passion. Poetry, philosophy, religion, self help, motivation, inspiration, personal empowerment. These are some of the topics that I personally like to post —**Ahem** rant– about.
Surely there is something in here for someone. And If it’s not for you– then hey, that’s cool too. Maybe my instagram page will be more exciting.
Or maybe Littermature’s instagram page will be more exciting.
If you like what you stumble across, I would greatly appreciate a Like, Share, Comment, or Review.
Beyond that, stay tuned on what we have to say– in cynical, poetic, inspirational, or just plain weird fashion.

What is Littermature Online?
As another human in experience, hello again.
Littermature started as a collection of journaled thought entries, and observances. They were initially jotted down onto scrap pieces of paper, notebooks, or any other form of parchment over the years. It is a collection of my own personal thoughts that have been documented at random, based on how or what I was feeling within the moment. It is a mass disorganization, and should illustrate the true disorganization of the human ego within its own thoughts — Funny beings we are.
Ultimately, Littermature ONLINE are little blurbs of expression and thought– Poetry if that’s what you would like to call it.
Feel FREE to dive deeper into the blocked time of a mind, by reading through the Littermature Online. It’s there to be read.

Littermature Notebooks can be used for journaling, goal setting, drawing, dreaming, planning, designing, or err– math. Feel free to use them in whatever manner you desire.
I also focus on artistic pencil cases, which can be used as organizers for pencils, arts, money, makeup, painting, or crafts… Again, use them how you please.
Why Notebooks and Pencil Cases?
I chose to focus on these products as the physical act of handwriting has been a very powerful form of expression in my life. I feel the need to give people the chance to purchase something unique, inspiring, or straight up entertaining in a way that can help them cultivate their own expressions as dictated by their very own, and unique experience.
We ALL have an identity, and it’s important to identify with the people and things that we surround ourselves with– People and tools for our betterment. In that, it is IMPERATIVE TO MEANINGFULLY CONNECT with these things as we live in a day where connection has extended itself BEYOND the physical reach of our fingertips.
How Do You Make These?
I create design, draw, or journal as it comes to me, they are typically influenced by my day to day experiences, perspectives, interactions, and expressions with the world. They often surface subconciously through spontaneity or sheer observation of experience.
When a concept comes about in my mind, I begin scheming on my tablet, where each design is pieced together in its completion. Tangibly speaking, from process to product the whole things 100% Canadian.
Check out Littermature Notebooks on Etsy— there is something in there for someone.
I am excited to keep exploring life in order to bring out the best in, and out of myself in this scary, and crazy— yet marvelously beautiful world.
Most importantly, If I can inspire others to pursue their own ambitions by living my best life, I can relish in the feeling of a greatness that has extended itself beyond me.
And in all of that, keep learning, keep building, keep growing, keep WORKING!
George Kourtesiotis, Human.
