Illustrator and Concept Artist
My name is Pedro Amato, I am an American-born and Brazillian-raised human.
I currently work as a Concept Artist at BlackBirdInteractive making video games. Before that I worked in the animation industry as a designer at studios such as DHX(Wild Brain), Rainmaker(Mainframe), and Atomic Cartoons.
I graduated from Emily Carr University with a BFA in Illustration in 2017.
I have experience in fantasy illustrations for card-games such as Lord of the Rings and Star Wars trading card games.
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, 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.
