Jose Teixeira

Freelance illustrator, cartoonist, and comic book creator

Braga, Portugal
I have an instinct for freedom and creativity and, i've been told, for humour.
A nine to five office job has never been a fitting for me.
Drawing and writing have always been my greatest passions.
Although I spent some years studying Computer Systems Engineering and Law I have never stopped drawing.
In order to support myself and simultaneously be able to create, I had a part-time job at a shopping centre for several years, along with some other punctual work...
