Hello, i’m André!
An Illustrator with a love for drawing stories.
I live and work in a small town called Vila de Pereira, near Coimbra, Portugal.
Drawing and telling stories were two things that i always loved growing up.
Looking to improve my skills i attended the Escola Universitária de Artes de Coimbra, for Communication Design. Since September 2008, i’ve been freelancing full time, working in a variety of projects, from children’s and young adults books, textbooks, to magazines and newspapers illustration and packaging.
I’ve also illustrated a variety of comic books, from short stories about science, to graphic novels, and helped people understand the power of stem cells, with Uma Aventura Estaminal comic book.
In 2015 i was awarded with Excellence in Illustration for Comics, during Galardões BD at Comic Con Portugal, for the work i did for Volta: Um Segredo do Vale das Sombras.
