My name is Matheus, and I'm an art student from Rio de Janeiro.
I remember liking cartoons and games since forever! I would play a lot those plug and play video games when I was around 3 to 5 years old. That's before getting my first actual gaming console: a PlayStation One! Some years after that I got the PS2, and that must be my favorite console of all times! I had a blast with it back when I was a kid. I would gather my friends at my place and we would spend hours and hours playing that!
The same for cartoons! I always loved it, and I still love it! More than I do love series, that I barely watch to be honest. I remember getting back from school everyday and watching Cartoon Network. I liked Ed, Edd n Eddy, but I watched many other stuff! I also remember enjoying Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Airbender, MLAATR, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Lab, MLAATR, Johnny Bravo... there are so many I could make pages of this!
Around when I was 12, I decided I wanted to make games. I started to learn many different things, like using Adobe softwares and when I was around 14-15 years old I started to study in a Game school around here in Rio. However, most of its content was more art oriented, and I ended up falling in love with it.
Today, I'm down for anything: working on games, animations, whatever!!
