I have been drawing since I was very young, my first drawing is dated from mid 1981 (below). In my life I was fortunate to have my mother Lúcia, although we were poor, she always encouraged me and believed that somehow this path could bring me happiness and some money. I will always be grateful to her to make me believe.
But the truth is that growing up with a lack of money made me follow the path that could pay my bills. So I worked with what was available in the market from video editor to graphic designer, among other things. It was a great exercise for my creativity, because I was increasingly required speed in my responses, all this pressure led me to appreciate creation, more precisely conceptual art.
Below are some of the works I did as an illustrator and conceptual artist:
Illustration & concept art – demo reel: 2009 – 2014
Illustration, concept art & visual targets
Concept art & planning
Careful planning is capable of overcoming almost all difficulties.
Speedpaint & color script
One of my main methods for creating or searching for a new idea. Without worrying about the details, it just comes. Many of the answers that I am looking for in a project end up appearing precisely in that ignored scribble.
Digital art x Tradicional art
To bring more value to my digital paints I decided to paint some of then in acrylic over canvas. it is also being a great exercise to take a fresh look at methods and techniques. After all, Ctrl-z is a huge help, but it is also an addiction that can take your original expression from you.
