|(Artist - Action Comics; Superboy; Supergirl; The Cape; Final Crisis; JLA)|
|I’m from Mozambique, in Africa. Currently I am living in Brazil. Long story short, I broke in through the internet and Deviantart. Back in 2005 I opened a Devart account. There I met an American writer, Grant Chastain and he invited me to join the Ronin Studios forums and work with him on a project called Corrective Measures. I did the 1st issue and almost immediately after that, I began talking with Howard Wong about this “drunk Super Hero” idea he had for a mini-series and we went on and off with it until Howard started talking with Image Comics’ Jim Valentino and Kris Simon... eventually After The Cape came out, sold out, made me a very happy child! From that everything happened, very slowly. I did not get any jobs whatsoever for a while. |
After I met Rafael Albuquerque and joined his studio, I got to meet and work with some great artists including Mateus Santolouco, Cris Peter, Edu Medeiros as well as Rafael, himself. I finally learned the art of inking and got my first inking jobs with BOOM! on the covers of Zombie Tales and Cthulhu Tales. I had a lot of learning to do, and meeting the right people helped. I met people like Eddie Berganza, Ivan Brandon, Brazilian superstars Fábio Moon, Gabriel Bá and Rafael Grampá. The wheels started to turn and I met more new people connected to the comic-book world. They had different opportunities for me, which eventually landed me at DC, with Final Crisis last year. Since then it’s been a blast! I’ve worked with a personal favorite writer, Greg Rucka on Final Crisis: Resist; and another writer that became a personal favorite after NY: Mech, Ivan Brandon. Ivan and I worked on Final Crisis: Escape. Now, I’m the ongoing artist for The Shield series.
