Hello! My name is Clau Souza. I’ve been a professional illustrator for the last 15 years and I’m currently represented by Bright Agency. During this time I’ve been working with a great variety of publishers, advertising agencies, magazines, toys and games companies, and non-profit organizations from around the world. Originally from Joinville, Brazil - I'm currently living in Toronto, Canada where I also work in community arts -- primarily with the non-profit Story Planet.
I love to work in a flat and colourful style - but I’m always open to trying different approaches depending on the project’s needs. I have a degree in Advertising from IELUSC (Brazil) and a post-graduation certificate in Arts Education and Community Arts from Centennial College (Canada).
