Rafael Grampa (Brazil)


Furry Water (Blog)

My name is Rafael Grampá. I began working as an illustrator at the age of 14. I began by illustrating self-help books – what I call the “how to raise your problematic teenagers sort”. During this period, I also did t-shirt designs, caricatures, children’s party decorations, coats of arms and logos for butcher shops and surf shops. After that I graduated to working as an illustrator for a kid’s comic publisher where the weirdest thing was that we were required to wear a tie. I went to work with animation in 2003 at the brazilian motion graphics studio LOBO where I was art director and concept designer for four years, working for clients such as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Creme Savers, Banco Real, Grendene , Diesel and others. Recent freelance work includes the concept design for ESPN-NBA spots, for Wieden+Kennedy NY, directed by Blacklist’s CISMA, and the visual ID for RESFEST/10 Brasil, that includes a opening and a toy.

Actually I´m working on the feature adaptation of Lourenço Mutarelli´s graphic novel “O Dobro de Cinco” as production designer.

I launched my first solo graphic novel, MESMO DELIVERY, at San Diego Comic Con 2008. Mesmo Delivery is being ditributed in USA by AD House Books.

I did with Fábio Moon, Gabriel Bá, Vasilis Lolos and Becky Cloonan the independent comic book “5″, the EISNER AWARDS 2008 winner for best anthology.

    Hi Rafael, I really love the little I've seen of your work...where can I see more? Do you have a gallery in Europe? New York, or on the west coast, USA? Where do you live?
    Best,
