Illustrator and Concept Artist
My name is Pedro Amato, I am an American-born and Brazillian-raised human.
I have experience in fantasy illustrations for card-games such as Lord of the Rings and Star Wars trading card games. I also contributed with illustrations for Nature Medicine magazine, movie posters and several personal commissions.
In 2015 I had an informative stay at Vetor Zero Studios, as an in-house contract concept artist. In 2017 I was part of the design team at DHX studios for the upcoming MegaMan TV show and since then I've been working for Jester Coyote in several animation projects.
For two years I operated as the manager for Daisho Workshops in Vancouver, a small enterprise that offers guidance from professionals in the industry at an affordable price and a close, warm environment.
I love to experience stories, be it in a book describing a world down to its last detail or in a video-game with purposely vague lore. I also like making my own stories and transcribing them into paintings. I do my best to channel what I experience in life into emotions for my illustrations, (a non-literal process) in the hopes that whoever looks at it can feel what I once felt, and fill in the details and meanings as their own imagination sees fit.
