Jump 2010

This poster it's almoust like a remake of this previous work, I used almoust the same technique but this the patterns are a bit different. I had loads of fun doing it, especially the drawing of the kid. Enjoy!

Friday, 15 January 2010


This is a wierd self potrait made with mix of textures and color a bit stronger then usual. I think it looks good, but it can be a bit over the top...I dont know... I really like it. Enjoy!

Wednesday, 13 January 2010


Finally I have time on my hands to work a bit. This time I decided to use a similar technique but in lager scale. I decided to cover almoust all the illustration with a explosion of textures. I had a really great time doing it, and I think it shows in the final result! Enjoy!

Back to work

After almoust 2 months without posting anything... here it is finally! This is a commissioned work that I did for a friend of mine. I used the basic techinque that I use in all my works. First I draw it in Illustrator and then add some textures of old paper, old stamps or just stuff I find in the streets. Enjoy it!

Tuesday, 18 August 2009


Almoust arriving to the 100 works posted here in this blog... so what better way to celebrate that with another work. This time I´ve made dthe drawing in Illustrator and add all the textures in Photoshop after...enjoy!

Tuesday, 28 July 2009


In this poster I've used again the same technique, I combine some textures of notes and stamps and this came out. I'm having loads of fun joining this new textures together... enjoy!!

Saturday, 18 July 2009


It's a fact, I'm defently back to the old style of illustration I had 2 years ago. Ofcourse with some changes but basically it's the same. I used some textures of an old russian note and did a drawing of a friend of mine... hope he doent mind. Enjoy!

Thursday, 2 July 2009


After a all day stressing about work and deadlines I finally had time to relax and do this poster. This was a design that I've been doing for quite a while now. It has more then 200 layers and it was great fun to do. Enjoy.

Wednesday, 1 July 2009


In this poster I went back to basics. I decided to go back to a style that I used to had in the beggining. I just love to play arround with those textures and colors in Photoshop. By the way this poster was made for a non profit organization. Enjoy!

Triangle kid

I'm almoust addicted to this kind of graphism., this sort of pontism made with geometric shapes. I've draw all of this in Illustrator and then passed to photoshop to add some textures and to balance the color. This is the final result. Enjoy.

Tuesday, 9 June 2009


Finally I post something here on my blog. This time I try to do something a little bit different, so I decided to put a black background. I really think that yellow and balck work quite well together, and if you join some bits of blue the match it's perfect. I did it all in Illustrator, add some textures and balanced some colors on photoshop. Enjoy!

Ten images for Ithaca 2

This poster it's for a competition called Ten images for Ithaca. It's the secound time I participate in it. The theme of this yeas was "I", so i decided to do a self portrait representing how I see myself, with the things that are usually in my mind... and this came out... quite scary isnt it? hehehe. Enjoy!!

Friday, 27 March 2009

flying upwords... let's go

I had so much fun doing this poster!! I did all the drawing on Illustrator, then I passed to photoshop to add some texture, trying to give an old "vibe" to the poster. I'm quite happy with the result! Enjoy!!

Thursday, 15 January 2009


I had this idea in my head for several months now.I wanted to do something were I could mix a bunch of graphic elements, and from there something would come out... like a shape of an elephant!! So here it is!!! Enjoy!!

Wednesday, 14 January 2009


More then a month as passed since the last post, but I'm back. This poster was probably the most demanding work I ever done, it took me 1 week just to draw all the graphic elements. And then several hours on photoshop adding textures and balancing the colours.
I'm quite happy with the result... enjoy!!

Wednesday, 3 December 2008


In this poster my main inspiration was the 80's. At least that was the inicial idea, but somehow the final look of the design it's not very 80's. Even so I had loads of fun doing it. I've used some old textures, and some new patterns. So here it is...enjoy!

We hope to have a website in January were you can buy some printings and t-shirts made by us. Hope u like it. And by the way, if this face looks some guy you know, it's a pure coincidence!! hehe... enjoy!!

Thursday, 23 October 2008


In this poster I've try to play a bit more with the photoshop, I used the textures to create contrast and spots of color in some parts. I like the final result, it's probably similar to some designs I did before, but I just have too much fun with Enjoy!

Saturday, 18 October 2008


Finally a new poster!! This poster probably it's simbol of everything it's organizing in my life again!! After moving back to Portugal I had some problems with the computer, and then I didn't had time (the best portuguese excuse by the way..hehe) to work. But finally Im back.
This poster its about Alentejo, the region in Portugal were my parents were born. And I did this design specially to my fathers birthday, I hope he likes...lets see. He usually dosent have much of an opinion about m work, so Im a bit nervous, he can be the most dificult client sometimes.
It's good to be back. Enjoy!

Last week I was seeing a really nice documentary on BBC4 about Ella fitzgerald, and they were talking about her first band ...I cant remember the name right now... but I noticed a poster of their first concert, and it was amazing!! So, I had the idea of doing this poster.
Lately I've been feeling this need of starting to experimenting with fonts, and try to understand were do they work better. I still have to practice more...but I think I'm in the right track.
By the way, this poster it's dedicated to another bar that I used to go in Lisbon. It was a nice place, with nice jazz music...and sometimes wierd things could happen...mainly in the toilets...but that's another story...hehehehe. Enjoy!

Tuesday, 9 September 2008


As you may noticed, lately I've been doing some posters with a certain 70's vibe. I guess it's the influence of a poster I seen few months ago in a rock pub here in England. I juts love this type of vintage style. I wasnt sure about the colours, but I guess in the end it turn out ok. Probably I will add some lettering later on. Enjoy!

Friday, 5 September 2008


Finally I finished the things I had to do this week, and what is the best way of celebrating a bit more!!! So, I decided to pay tribute to one of the bars I used to go when I was living in Lisbon. Its a quite dark place, is always playing the same albuns, Nirvana, Pixies, Pearl Jam and Manu Chau... all the time...they didn't chance anythign in 10 years. Oh and by the way, the name of the bar is Clandestino. Enjoy!

This is a poster for a contest in Czech Republic. The objective was to creat something connected to attraction. So I decided to get an old drawing I did in a previous poster, and try to bring it to a completly different level using new graphic elements. I'm quite happy with the final result. I did strugle a bit with the type of lettering to use, but I guess the good old classic Helvetica still saves the day... Enjoy!

Tuesday, 2 September 2008


I've been quite busy lately. Projects to finish, things to take care of... So I didnt do anything specially for the blog. This time I'm going to show a Poster that I've been doing for a company of wines in Spain.
I had loads of fun doing it. But I have to say that this time I did strugle a bit to imagine and, more important, to do the graphic elements... but in the end I think it came out alright. Enjoy!
