Brazil
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 can say 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.

____________________________________



Eu nasci em 1968 em São Paulo. Em 1989 iniciei o curso de Arquitetura na Universidade de São Paulo e em 1991 minha vida profissional como ilustrador. Fiz algumas HQs, trabalhei em jornais, ilustrei livros infantis e algumas revistas de circulação nacional. Em 1999 iniciei o trabalho como ilustrador e infografista na revista Veja. Em 2000 tornei-me capista da Revista Istoé. Em 2002 comecei a escrever colunas para revista Publish. Em 2004, já cansado da rotina estafante de trabalho, abri meu estúdio freelancer de ilustração e edição de imagens. Também ganhei prêmios nas áreas em que atuo. Como ilustrador, recebi em 1998 o Prêmio Ofélia Fontes e em 1999 o Prêmio Jabuti de ilustração Infantil. Como editor de imagens, ganhei dois Prêmios Essos de Criação Gráfica em Revistas (2000 e 2002). Hoje, trabalho principalmente no computador. Para ilustrar, gosto de usar texturas sobrepostas em layers. O resultado é sempre inusitado, tal qual como um trabalho manual.

I bought your stars calendar which arrived yesterday, and I have to say that it really brightens up the white wall I hung it on. So pretty! :D

I really adore your work, especially the Stars series (what helped me come to know you). It's really delightful to look at them - the colors, the scenes are so hopeful they lifted up my day. Thank you for making such great, inspiring work :)
