I started drawing at about the age of 10, copying the characters from the Disney comics. Characters like Zé Carioca, Donald Duck and others. at the age of thirteen I began to draw other types of characters, in the style of Marvel and DC, such as Spiderman, and Captain America. I spent hours copying the arts of great American artists, such as John Bryne, Alfred Alcala, and others. I was only seventeen and with a degree in artistic drawing and publicity in hand I began to give drawing lessons to friends of the village where I lived, vacancies I was lucky to work on drawing when I was about 25 years old at Plastivale. He was doing arts for the bags that went to the stores of the Paraiba Valley. When the company went to Minas Gerais, I decided not to follow and I went back to drawing only when I started to make signs and wall drawings for a sign company in the area.
