Constantly seeking original ideas
And thinking with an Indie approach
Pedro began making portrait cartoons at the age of 9 using his school friends as target subjects and later in high school satirized his teachers on the back of math test papers. His early education was in Art & Design both in Highschool in the 80’s in Portugal and on a foundation course in London in 1996. In 2000 he went onto study Architecture for two years and subsequently worked in Technical Drawing for nine years, of which four was self-employment in London. He completed a Postgraduate Certificate in 2004 at the University of Westminster and in 2021 graduated with a BA (hons) in Popular Music from the Anglia Ruskin University and a Prize for best major project.
