AKACORLEONE
Biography: My name is Pedro Campiche (AKACORLEONE), i belong to the amazing ´85 generation and i´m an illustrator and graphic designer originally from Lisboa, Portugal, but currently living and working in Caldas da Rainha, a cool town near Lisbon, after a year living in Barcelona, Spain. Oh no, is he another designer with a graffiti influence? that´s right, painting walls and running from dogs also gave me the addiction to typography, color, painting, drawing all day, planning things in advance, and mostly it gave me a chance to express myself without boundaries, something i try to apply to may daily life and work. In this epic struggle to become a full-time illustrator i´m always divided between my love for vectors and my absolute passion for markers, ink, watercolours, moleskines doodling and screen printing, so i try to incorporate both digital and handmade elements in my work! Besides being obsessed with everything visual, i´m a sneaker head, a toy collector, a bike rider, a graffiti lover, a travelling addicted, awesome chef, comic enthusiast, movie buff, Polaroid fan, fun lovin´ criminal and ping pong champion wannabe…
