I'm an illustrator from Lisbon, currently based in Cologne (DE). I've completed a degree in the Fine-Arts (Sculpture), but have also taken many classes in drawing and illustration. My focus has been the anatomy of the human body and enclosed landscapes. I've taken classes in anatomy and live drawing for this reason. Recently, I've been trying to expand this into a cartoon(ish) dimension, as it helps me create more varied paintings and with a hint of naivety that I like to see in illustration work.
My professional work has been entirely freelance based, and I take pleasure in working with clients across the world. A recent example of this is the web series "cheeky bites" which I do in collaboration with comedic writer Nicholas Maffe (Los Angeles). Short sized, food based, web comics of which you'll find examples in this page.
Other clients have included school books, musical imagery, video game art, etc,.
In my work, I try to keep a relaxed attitude with those I work with, as I like to involve myself in the projects if there's room for it. Illustration is part of my job, but I have other aptitudes too. For example, I also write, play music and have worked in small video game projects. That is to say that I like to see projects in their entirety so that the illustrations become a natural part of the whole concept.
I try to be dynamic and my technical skills should allow me to adapt to diverse styles of work. So, whatever your idea, feel free to discuss it with me directly.
