It's not just about creating illustrations. For each project, a whole new style is created.


The fun lies on trying new tricks.

I was born and raised in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, but currently live in Vancouver BC, Canada – where I recently concluded a full year of 3D texturing, modeling and sculpting study. Years ago, back in Brazil, I chose to graduate on Graphic Design, but kept working solely as an illustrator during (and after) the academic degree, which was fundamental for the expansion of my repertoire, as well as the understanding of the context in which illustrations are inserted. 

All along, I’ve never committed myself to a single style . I think every job is an opportunity to hone new skills and styles.

Eu nasci e fui criado em Belo Horizonte, Brasil, mas atualmente moro em Vancouver, Canada – onde acabo de concluir um ano de estudos em escultura, textura e modelagem 3D. Ainda no Brasil, escolhi me formar em Design Gráfico, continuando a atuar especificamente como ilustrador durante e após o curso, que foi fundamental para expandir meu repertório, assim como o entendimento do “todo” no qual a ilustração está inserida.

Pelo caminho, nunca me comprometi a seguir um único estilo. Creio que cada trabalho novo é uma oportunidade para lapidar novas habilidades e estilos.
