What is the moment of the day you enjoy the most?

In between rock and jazz.

How would you describe your style?
It’s a huge predisposition for disaster, lack of talent for everything and a lack of care with the materials. It’s inevitable, but I end up by taking advantage of all that.
Are there any designers/artists/architects from the past whose work you admire?
Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, a great illustrator, decorator, social and political cartoonist and ceramicist, although at his time the term ‘designer’ didn’t exist.
Describe a typical working day.
Wake up early, take a bath, get dressed, deal with some housework. Then I sit at the desk to design, and when I am not designing I do some research, answer emails; promote my work, taking care of my facebook/site/flickr/society6/behance/tumblr/blog, while I eat some crackers and other junk food. This takes all day and later at night I stop for a little dinner with my boyfriend and when necessary (quite often) continue to work late into the night.
What would your dream work be like?
I would like to paint a building, illustrate a book, illustrate a newspaper or magazine regularly, have a store/atelier with friends.
Is there someone you would like to work for?
Ideally, I would like to work with a group of friends where there is no boss.
Can you recommend some of your favorite books?
Where is wally?, nobrow magazines, Um Dia na Praia – Planeta Tangerina, Where the wild things are…
What do you expect for the future?
My dream comes true from the moment I am doing what I love; the next step is to be able to live from that.
