Walter Vasconcelos

My name is Walter Vasconcelos, and I am an illustrator and designer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I am the Art Editor for the magazine "Ciência Hoje das Crianças" and one of the authors of "Papel Brasil", an alternative art and image magazine.
In the last years, I have been working for several newspapers and magazines in my country and in USA, with the aid of my friend and representative Frank Sturges. I´m really enthusiastic about editorial illustration, for if you have liberty to create, heaven is the limit.

Ink spots, scribbles, old papers, graphic fonts, old photos and images are totally revisited in my graphic vocabulary. I use Illustrator and Photoshop, but I want not my drawings to have a "computer-made" face. I search the imperfect trace, the gesture, the flaw... as if the draft and the final art could share the same universe. 

I like the idea that an illustration must be "read", deciphered, I don't think of this as a kind of "hermetism", but rather as a way to preserve a "dynamics of creation". It is sometimes good to break the rules and build your own Universe. 
Presently I have been building my website www.wvzero1.com, which I want to be a place to advance in the experience of radical graphic solutions.
