Client: Editora Abril, Playboy magazine (BRA) | DEC 2005
Years ago I worked as a web designer for this internet company and whenever work was too stressful, an hour on DUST was enough to make us feel good again. Sometimes my friend Tsunami and I used to go online to bring hell to the other players. I called myself Kommando and without any modesty I was the best sniper around. But that was years ago...
These are illustrations I created for a Brazilian Playboy article about cheats, cheaters and cheat hunters. It was all about Counter Strike from beginning to end and it was one of the most enjoyable work I've ever done.
The opener was later published on Art Box International New Illustrators File: Volume 8 and on Archive 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 07/08.
Fire in the hole!
Zero Dark Thirty
Client: Entertainment Weekly | AD: Steven Charny | DEC 2012
Zero Dark Thirty was published by Entertainment Weekly in its 2012 Best & Worst issue. It was my first job for the magazine and for Steven Charny, the magazine's Design Director and although the job begun as a real challenge at the time due to the lack of images and information related to the real events, it turned to be quite an exciting and fun experience and one of my best works of 2012.
With a little more than 6 official images of the movie itself and some screen shots of the trailer, I tried to research what I could about what is known of the operation, the people and teams involved and some of the new military equipment used on the assault, such as the GPNVG-18 (Ground Panoramic Night Vision Goggles) and a loose interpretation of the still unknown Stealth MH-60 Black Hawk, both now very popular on the internet, but extremely difficult to find at the time.
