Gustavo is an illustrator, graphic designer, and concept artist born in Cuiabá, Brazil. He studied 2D Animation & Digital Art at Langara College in Vancouver, where he developed
projects focused on the pre-production of animated shows and games. His artistic education also includes courses at New Masters Academy and CGMA. In Brazil, he worked as an officer for the Ministry of Education of his native state, supporting school administrators and helping students grow and achieve their dreams through education - a mission he is proud tocontinue at Arts Umbrella. Passionate about stories and music, Gustavo signs his artwork as Blucaju - a combination of a curious and yellowish Brazilian fruit (caju) and the blue notes of jazz that are always playing while he draws.
