I am a graphic artist and illustrator from Brazil. So, forgive me my bad English.
I live and work in Sao Paulo. I started illustrating newspapers, magazines and children's books. After that, I was contracted to design the covers for one of the biggest magazines in the country. I won some prizes with this work. But the routine made me tired and I had a desire to return to illustrate books and magazines. So I did it. After four years, I am sure I made the right choice...
Often I use different styles and techniques to illustrate. Also, as a result of my old job designing covers, I have some knowledge of graphic design and photomanipulation. I'll show here a little bit of everything I do.
I am grateful to be able to enjoy the wonderful work of my colleagues, renewing my love for illustration and graphic arts. I am here also to show my work in graphic arts, share ideas and possibly earn some money from sales.
