Born in 1974, in Lisbon, Portugal – he has worked as a professional designer, illustrator, animator, cartoonist, and caricature artist. While working for a number of Portuguese publications, Carrilho has won both national and international awards, and he also has exhibited his work in Portugal, Spain, Braszil, France, and the U.S. Recently, he has developed interactive visuals, in conjunction with a fellow musician, and has directed a short animated film, "Dinner in Lisbon".
His caricature work is formal, and basic. Some of the truly 'labored-over' portions of the works are the facial features and the hands, while the clothing and bodily forms are mostly represented by graphic elements of line and the sweeping contours of the human form.
