Show Notes:

Artist

Are you as obsessed with video games as your artwork would seem to indicate? What titles (other than Street Fighter)?
You have a lot of Street Fighter fan art. Who’s your favorite character to draw?

Work

– Not sure if it’s a good topic, but working methods, how developed own style (since it’s something people keep asking frequently), how’s the workflow etc. More technical questions which can be helpful to some people – I’m thinking this coz it’s quite a regular question in the area / How my work came into spotlight and to be known, in and out of Brazil
I’m curious to hear your thoughts on developing your style! We cover techincal stuff a lot on the show. It would be nice to talk about your personal, artistic development.

As a freelancer, what is your daily studio routine?
Unlike most concept artists I’ve seen, you seem to bring almost every idea to a fairly complete drawing? Reason?
Most of the stuff you draw is very sketchy. Is that for speed or asthetic reasons? Both?
You share a lot of your thumbnailing process on tumblr. Have you ever had trouble re-creating that thumbnail magic in a finished piece?
Have you always been comfortable with a brush and ink? What were some of the hurtles when you first started using a brush?

– Independent Artbook, Comic Appearances (in Brazil), Personal Projects (comic book), Work goals, Work as a Freelancer, Working for Harper Collins as illustrator for books until 2018 (TBA/TBR book series)
