New collection for mySugar


Last month I had the pleasure of once again collaborating with the portuguese brand mySugar and earlier this week the final product reached their stores (take a peek at a previous collaboration).

This time my job was to create a collection of  illustrations inspired by different cities of Portugal, like Lisbon, Porto and Algarve to decorate the packaging of their chocolate tins. On each of them, I included symbols that represent the city and Portugal and paired them with colorful handwritten typography and personalized background pattern.
The final product is paired with a delicious milk chocolate bar, as you can see from the photos below. (more…)

Colour Collective

Recently I’ve been joining on Twitter a weekly illustration challenge where you make work based on a single colour called: Colour Collective. Artists are allowed to use any medium, style and theme they want, the only requirement is for us to incorporate the weekly color into our work. It has been a lot of fun to see everyone’s work every Friday while interacting with other artists – the  community is super friendly and encouraging. It has also been a great way for me to keep creating fresh new portfolio pieces like these two.


May & June Roundup

A little roundup of bits and bobs I’ve been working on recently:

– portfolio pieces focused towards children’s illustration and character design;

– christmas prints that soon will be available for licensing;

On another news, I (finally!) joined Twitter. I know it has been around for a while now, but for some reason I never really understood how to navigate the platform. Yesterday, 30 minutes after signing up I think I got the hang of it. You can follow me here.

Also, do you remember the e-course I took on ‘Illustrating Children’s Picture Books‘? I wrote a review here on my blog in case you missed it.
Sabina and Denise teamed up once again to create a workshop where you’ll be able to learn all about the current and emerging trends for the 2017 Kids Market. It’s called Kids Trend Workshop and starts June 10, 2016.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
