In a sentence, who are you and what do you do?
I’m a comic book artist that loves fantasy and the contemplation of life.
What got you started? Was there a specific moment or time when you realised “this is what I want to do”?
In my childhood my main play was making comics, but all my life I was seeking to be an illustrated books artist. Then, in 2018 I made a comic called “Ralo” (Drain) and I realized making comics was my passion and what I wanted to do for my life.
What was your favourite comic growing up?
I never had a favorite comic, but I have a lot of fun reading Otomen, Hellboy and American Vampire.
What was the first piece of work or project that you were really proud of?
When I made a comic for a Brazilian publisher that I wanted to work with so much. I think this work will be published this year and mixes fairies and the problems of real life.
What is your preferred material to work with?
The traditional art, watercolor, pencils and colored pencils.
What is your least liked material to work with?
Digital art, sometimes I need to use, but I prefer the traditional techniques.
What’s your dream project? Forget about money, time, popular demand or any other variable. If that was all covered and you would work on whatever you wanted. What would it be?
I don’t have a specific project, I want to work with my own comics and put out all those stories I want to tell.
If you were hired to create a book cover based on a classic story. What would the story be and how would you tackle creating it?
Alice in Wonderland, mixing all the variations I’ve seen and adding my own interpretation of this wonderful world.
What are you currently working on and what’s coming up in the future?
I’ve an ongoing personal project called “onde nascem os seres mágicos?” (Where are magical beings born?) on a crowdfunding platform and I’m working on a comic with a Brazilian writer.
Which artist(s) would you like to see interviewed? Why?
Zao Dao, she has a wonderful artwork and a great woman artist.
What questions (apart from these ones!) would you like to ask them?
Who are the artists you use as reference?
Tell us something about yourself that people wouldn’t normally know!
Anxiety can have a good side if you know how to use it.
