    Júlio Dolbeth

    Born in Angola, but currently working in Porto, Portugal, Júlio Dolbeth has a very experimental and carefree style. Already having completed a degree in Communication Design and a Master in Multimedia Art, he is currently pursuing a doctorate in Illustration. On top of his studies Mr. Dolbeth co-founded Art Gallery, Dama Aflita, a space dedicated to illustration in Porto. Júlio Dolbeth is a mixed-media artist, but does seem to favour the humble pencil. Where his line work is loose and somewhat erratic, giving it that sketchbook-feel and filling his pieces with vigour. You can check out more of his work here.

    Ricardo Bessa

    Ricardo is from Portugal and now lives in London. He works at D&AD, the famous creative hub home to the famous Yellow Pencil award. On Ricardo’s website you’ll find some excellent projects, both personal and professional. His Gallery of Mo portraits are fun, and I highly recommend taking a look at ‘Ever After’, his MA final project. I like the often whimsical and sometimes provocative nature of his work, so of course we were delighted to receive this suggestion. Now, wonder on over and gasp in delight at the rest of Ricardo’s portfolio…

    Luis Melo

    Lisbon-base freelance illustrator and part-time DJ has one of the most varied portfolios I have seen in a long time. He is particularly skilled at backgrounds, and my personal favourites are the ones that look like they have come straight from an animation. Check out more of his work on his website.
