Born in Lisbon in 1977, Patrícia Furtado was a four-eyed know-it-all nerdette since an early age, and proudly so. She graduated in Communication Design and worked for a year in a design studio, before moving to London, where she webdesigned for clients such as PepsiCo and Haagen Dazs. Back in Lisbon, she did a stint at The Lisbon Studio, and focused on editorial and children’s illustration. She published a couple of cookbooks, and illustrated Valter Hugo Mãe, Alice Vieira and Nuno Markl, among others. Patrícia publishes a webcomic about being 40 and has way to many projects for the time she has to do them.
