About me
(ノ ˘_˘)ノ🎨 Artist, designer + writer based in Porto, Portugal When I’m not working on an illustration, animation or tattoo I’m usually dabbling in creative direction, project management or visual storytelling. From time to time I also publish a hefty zine about art + life called Loose Ideas. I’ve worked on projects in the US, Cuba, Central America, Eastern Europe and throughout Scandinavia, and I invite any and all opportunities to expand that list! I’m especially keen on those involving humor, good colors and an international lens. HOW ABOUT AN UNSOLICITED LIST OF SKILLS?

  • Small Biz Package for Local Indie Toy Store
    Small Biz Package for Local Indie Toy StoreHammer + Jacks is an independent toy store in Portland, OR (US) known for bringing in mindful makers and sustainable brands from around the world. The shop has a really warm, inclusive vibe. It's very hands-on, very ready-for-play – truly a store you can let your kid loose in. There's a giant TV stage on one end and a technicolored play space on the other. Handmade clouds dangle quietly from the ceiling while disco balls periodically make pretty little flecks on the muraled walls, and when the d
  • HAPPY HOUR - Menu Design
    HAPPY HOUR - Menu DesignBuhhh, I love menu design! This is a bold, heavily illustrated and retro-leaning menu design for a happy hour program launching at a popular local watering hole in Chicago's Wicker Park. "Colorful midcentury diner vibes" and "something about a graph paper notepad" were the original requests, and I accepted the challenge with GUSTO. We went with a traditional printed menu because (recycled) paper things are lovely, a mobile- and tablet-friendly version, and we decided on a few fun extras to keep

  • Newsletter Branding + Logo Package for Tudo Bem!
    Newsletter Branding + Logo Package for Tudo Bem!This is an extensive, hyper-colorful and over the top branding package (logo, icons and banner images in various forms) for the Tudo Bem newsletter! The goal was to create a brand identity reminiscent of 1980s graphic design and the casual use of rainbows of that era, while incorporating the psychedelic qualities and warm tones of 1970s type and design. Have some!

  • Loose Ideas No. 2
    Loose Ideas No. 2Headlines: Beach Town 001, Ring Roadin’, Starting Over, Home Cooked, How to be Less of an Asshole (In General), Beautiful Memory Desserts Issue two feels like a true Loose issue. It’s a bit dreamy, a little confrontational, and pretty packed with 35mm color film photography, illustrations and travel stories. There are just over 115 individual pieces of artwork (wow! you bet I counted) spread across 104 pages of vibrant visual storytelling. Bit of a jump from issue one’s 72 pages. Beach Town 001
