Brazilian illustrator Carlos Araujo spent eight years working as a graphic designer. He then decided to focus on his illustration skills, which was the turning point of his career. He has never looked back…
“My illustration style uses silhouettes and high contrasted figures with an whimsical and fun approach. A lot of my illos look like a scene captured from an animated movie like they are a part of a larger story. And instead of saying “style” I prefer the technical term ‘my way’.”
Carlos has been selected twice as one of the world’s 200 best illustrators according to Lüerzer’s Archive.
Thanks to Jose Mauricio Ribeiro de Araujo for the link.
