We grew up watching these guys save our planet everyday, either shooting the Spacium Ray or throwing the Eye Slugger at every big bastard monster willing to destroy the scale cities used as battle scenes. They were our heroes, our giant shiny heroes.
Ultraman and Ultraseven are my contributions for Hero Complex Gallery's exhibition Bleeding Metallics, a great show featuring artwork with metallic inks, paints, paper and metal itself. Four limited series of 25, size 18" x 24", were produced for the show, two printed in white paper and 2 in metallic silver paper.
And I mean it when I say I'm a long time fan, here's one of my oldest drawings, probably from late 70s or early 80s. A flying "Ultrasevem" and his gang fighting a huge dancing disco monster with shells bigger than tanks!

Poster exhibited at RED, a Hero Complex Gallery and Planet-Pulp collab show dedicated to the color red! Poster available at HCG online store:
Posters exhibited at Hero Complex Gallery's Righteous Rides...and the Dudes Who Drive Them! show, celebrating the most famous modes of transportation of our favorite movies, games and comics.
An invitation such as this can drive you crazy due to the numerous options you have available, so in order to maintain my sanity I approached it just like the way I did when I decided to make the Blade Runner poster, as quick as possible. Once I knew what I wanted I shut down all other options and moved forward to designing it before any second thoughts or regrets take over.
This time I chose to work with the famous Porsche 917K, with its iconic Gulf Team livery, the race car driven by Steve McQueen in the 1971 movie Le Mans. I believe it was a good option because not only I could pay homage to a great movie but also to the car that dominated the tracks in its time. Also I could make a dream come true: design a Tamiya like model kit box.
The blue poster is sold out but you can still find the orange at Hero Complex Gallery's online store:
Limited edition screen print of the classic movie War of the Worlds (1953), released and exhibited at Mondo Gallery opening in Austin, Tx in 2012. 24x36 inches, 6 colors (GID red and greens).
Client: Popload Gig | OCT 2011
For every show they produce, Popload Gig invites an artist to design a limited edition screen printed poster to be sold at the venues during the shows. I was thrilled to be invited to create the poster of one of my favorite bands, THE KILLS. A black beetle fashioned with golden leopard pattern and that marvellous black Hofner. I really couldn't ask for more... Or could I?...
Yes, as a matter of fact, I could. So I had the pleasure of working for the first time with Rogério Maciel, head of Estúdio Elástico and a master of the screen print craft. In between pots and pans, together we spent a great time at his studio, talking about art, the beauty of screen printing and mixing colors, frying our little brains in search for a perfect match between the petroleum dark gray and an aged metallic gold for our poster. Baby says it's all about a few drops of yellow... Rogério is very meticulous and a perfectionist when it comes to details. And the proof was a set of stunning prints.
So, as the last day of magic came to an end, I left the posters behind to dry as I waved the last goodbye. All I had to do now was head back home and get ready for The Kills. As a little treat, a few pictures I took from their amazing shows in São Paulo and a video I've made from one of my favorite songs, Black Balloon.

Client: Wear it With Pride | ADs: Kako + Carlos Bêla | MAY 2008
When Darren Firth invited me to be part of the upcoming exhibition Now Showing - Exploring the Lost "Art" of the Film Poster, I didn't think twice: I knew it was the right opportunity to finally work with designer Carlos Bêla and also knew that this could be my only chance to recreate the poster of my favorite movie, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Do you like our owl?... It's artificial?... Of course it is.
Our Blade Runner poster was exhibited in London (COSH Gallery) and in Barcelona (Vallery Gallery) along with several other amazing works by artists such as Mr. Ian Wright, Hellovon, Non Format, Corey Holms, Marian Bantjes, Grandpeople, Tomer Hanuka, Vania Zouravliov, Michael Gillette, James Joyce, Pure Evil, just to mention a few. After the exhibitions, COSH started selling limited edition prints and we soon heard the news that our poster was the first one to become sold out.
The poster was published on Communication Arts Advertising Annual 51 PROFILE section and in 2012, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Blade Runner, we created two variants of the original poster, the Director's Cut and the Final Cut, which were later released by Hero Complex Gallery on the Imagined Worlds show.
