Wall Stickers - Personal Project



Place it, change it, pick the nicest spot on the wall or wardrobe, make it bigger or smaller, put it in the room or in the bathroom... And when you're tired of the same image and colours, there is more where these came from!
I always liked the idea... :)

...random concept...!


I have become more and more interested in background concepts and speed painting lately, it's become my main interest after 2d animation. May this (hopefully) be the beginning of many more color concept studies I do from now on!

Latest news come as "Era uma vez... para o Luís"




It was refreshing to work on the personal project "Era uma vez... para o Luís" by Vasco Palma Nogueira, author of the book. He specially wrote and dedicated this story to his son Luís. I enjoyed working on it and developing my illustration skills as much as engaging on a group work with a family I have become friends with. Thank you, Verena and Vasco, for the opportunity and trust on such a precious project as this one.

"A Acção da Física na Nossa Vida"

Painted over a sketch, just like most of my illustrations. I don't usually draw directly on to the computer, I like paper.

Monday, September 26, 2011


















I have been trying out all sorts of different styles of drawing and painting lately. Right now I want to develop a little bit more my sense of colour and contrast in painting, something I have never dedicated to as much as drawing. So you'll probably see a big diversity on my work over the next few days.
