is an illustrator and comic book colorist that lives in Brazil. You can tell by his use of vivid colors that he isn't afraid to make something bright and beautiful as long as it's a little edgy at the same time.
Here's an excerpt from an interview he did with the little chimp society
Why do you do what you do?
I’ve drawn since I was a kid, I’ve always loved the arts…I don’t think I was inspired by someone to start, all the thing happened naturally. Art was the only subject I used to be good at school, but I never thought I could ever make money doing it. It was more like fun to me. Then, when I was 15-17 (I don’t remember well) I started doing some folders and comics for the company my dad works at, got some experience since then, and here I am now!
How much of your work is digital?
I’d say that my work is 50% manual and 50% digital. All the sketches, concepts, studies and textures I make in the traditional way, using papers, canvas, pencils, charcoal, watercolor, etc. Only the painting/coloring process I do in the computer, using a tablet.
How did you end up becoming a Colorist?
That was when I had just graduated from Graphic Design high school. I was desperate looking for a job, sending my portfolio to everywhere I could. Some months later, Impacto Quadrinhos a comic’s studio in SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil, interested in my work, and gave me some tests for American comicbook publishers.
