|My name is Rafael Grampá. I’m a comic book artist, a cartoonist. I already worked as art director of animation, motion graphics and graphic design. My first publication as a comic book author was a 4 page story in the GUNNED DOWN anthology, published in USA by TERRA MAJOR. After that I did with Fábio Moon, Gabriel Bá, Vasilis Lolos and Becky Cloonan the independent comic book “5.″ We won the EISNER AWARDS 2008 for best anthology.

In 2009 I won two HQ MIX AWARDS, the “brazilian Eisner Awards” for “Best Artist” and “Best Especial Graphic Novel” for MESMO DELIVERY.

FURRY WATER will be published by DARK HORSE COMICS. Also, DARK HORSE re-printed MESMO DELIVERY in 201o, as the first and independent first print is sold out.
