Joel Lobo has been working with graphic arts since 1992 when he finished the Communication Drawing apprenticeship at “Carlos de Campos” High School. Joel has taken several courses of specialization at SENAI “Theobaldo de Nigris” as well as "Quanta Academia de Artes". He also studied journalism at the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo, (PUC-SP), from 1996 to 2000.

As an illustrator he has had his work published in some of the largest in-circulation Brazilian publishing houses magazines such as Editora Abril, Globo, Moderna and Saraiva. He was awarded by the 13th MALOFIEJ "International Infographics Awards" and has the honor to integrate the collection Sketchbook Experience - notorious artbooks series published by Reference Press that features some of the greatest names of the present day illustrators of his country. Joel also organizes with his friend Fabio Corazza the sketchJAMS events (weekly drawing meetings during live music shows).

He was born and lived in São Paulo since 1974 until recently when he moved to the countryside in a neighbouring city where he has his home-studio. In this bucolic environment and surrounded by his collection of comics he can quietly spend the nights drawing and listening to his Cool Jazz LPs. Read Less
