Illustrate for me, is to learn, to discover and the joy to arrive to a synthesis. But it is also to re-create.

An illustration is an image and sometimes a supplement that helps you to understand, feel, see and which makes them more compelling a content or a subject. Also it makes it more beautiful a magazine, a house, clothes, a place or a book. In the book, an illustration is very important because it explains, and sometimes show us things that are not written.


I like to use pastel, color pencil, black pen, crayon, acrylic, oil, charcoal, collages and of course photoshop. Sometimes I mix the materials. Between the reality and its representation pass up things. To a certain extent, I think I see the world like when I was a child. I have a character who goes with me everywhere. It's a sort of an "imaginary friend", is a friend that is an idea, an idea that fits in reality, as if it were water. It is a good observer and is almost always in a good mood.


I love José de Almada Negreiros, Mário Botas, Paula Rego, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso and Fernanda Fragateiro, all Portuguese artists. I also really like Miró, Goya, Milo Manara, Comès, Hugo Pratt, Enki Bilal and Tim Burton.
