My name is Gonçalo Alves, I'm a Portuguese Designer and Illustrator based in the United Kingdom.
My passion for art began when I was a child, I loved drawing and watching cartoons and going to art museums. Through my teenage years I developed my drawing skills and enrolled in a Visual Arts course, where I studied Anatomy, Perspective, Descriptive Geometry and Art History. I found myself really interested in Architecture, Graphic Novels and Animation. In university I learnt various printmaking methods and explored various styles, from Offset Litho, to 2D Animation and Graphic Novels.
Ever since I finished University, I've been working on building my Design Portfolio, and on two different Graphic Novel projects.
My ambitions lie in becoming a Graphic Designer by day, and a Graphic Novel author by night.
