I´m 44 years old, live in the south of Portugal in a town near the ocean and i started my professional carreer back in 1992 when, because of my portfolio i got hired by a national software house which at the time was creating the first portuguese Pc Video game, called "Gambys" (see: http://www.luisperes.net/gambys_videogame_download_retro_gaming.html) and i ended up not only creating the characters, but all the subsequent graphics, animations and 3d world for the product which was released back in 1995.
After that,I have successfully completed projects as a professional freelance illustrator in Portugal and abroad.

My work experience includes video game work, cartoons, character and mascots development for marketing campaigns, packaging, identity,icons and screen layout designs for software applications (I´ve also designed hospitality software for more than ten years), storyboards and 3D animation for portuguese TV documentaries about oceanography.
Also did my share of greeting card art, book cover illustrations, fantasy pics, imaginary landscapes and created comics.
Since 2008, i do mainly children´s book work and also design and illustration for board games that require my type of colorful cartoon characters and fantasy fairy tale worlds in between. Among some of other work in generic graphic design too, always related to children´s book art or similar products for kids.
