I am re-organizing my portfolio for the process of building a brand new website. I found these old illustrations from 2009, when I was pregnant with my second son. I didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, the only thing I knew is that the little person kicked like crazy! So I did this little series as an homage, trying to guess what kind of activity he or she was doing in there!
I am originally from Brazil and moved to the US in 2002. I have been a professional illustrator for about 14 years. Clients include Scholastic, Pearson, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, McGraw-Hill, Hasbro Toys, Crocodile Creek, Polk Street Press, National Geographic School Publishing, Random House and Chronicle Books.
I have worked with all kinds of media but eventually settled with the digital brush, I love the freedom it allows me and all the possibilities of experimentation. Represented in the literary market by Deborah Warren and Rubin Pffefer - East West Literary Agency.
