Welcome to my website! 
Hi! My name is Otávio Albuquerque, I am an illustrator studying at the Savannah College of Art and Design. My passion for storytelling drives me to create illustrations, comics, and characters inspired by Nature. I am working toward a B.F.A in illustration with a concentration in concept for animation and games at Savannah College of Art and Design. The themes I am most interested in exploring in my work are our relationship with ourselves and the Earth, several types of humor, and nature-based magic and spirituality, often inspired by Eastern philosophies. I get most of my inspiration when hiking, grounding, and being in water, which are my favorite forms of active meditation. Nature is my scared space. I work mostly analog: gouache is my preferred medium, but I also blend analog techniques with digital tools, and create fully digital works as well.

I am trilingual in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. I am also a musician, playing piano, guitar, and singing-songwriting. Because of this, I continuously find ways to strike a balance between my creative abilities.
In current events, I just released my comic "Pollen,"  which you can purchase on my Etsy. There are more comics on the way, so stay tuned! Aside from standalone illustrations, I continue to work on visual development and worldbuilding for my original characters and stories. Thank you so much for stopping by :)
