Get to know me

Julius Ohta is an illustrator, comic book artist and designer based in São Paulo, Brazil.

Same old story -- I draw since forever. When I grew up, I decided to get in the design college. It was in 1996. Sooner, I was drawing for living and I became an illustrator. So it's been my job since then.

In 2005 I founded my own illustration studio named FUZION and worked for top ad agencies such as Young & Rubican, Leo Burnett, FCB, Fischer, Publicis, Age, Wunderman, and so many others. Also, I had the honour to work for the most incredible clients such as Ford, Sony, Henkel, Danone, Nestlé, TAM.

I am very proud of my work. Some of them are award winning, others appeared in publications. Once I was invited for Lüerzer's Archive team to figure their publication "200 Best Illustrators Worldwide" and then I was there. It happened twice, in 2005/06 and 2007/08. For quite a while I was the illustrator with the most number of insertions in their publications as well.

Along with my wife, in 2013 I started a new company named O Pinguim Tá Com Frio". As a product designer, the challenge was to create a new wedding stationery collection. We are doing just fine since then.

Since forever I have a parallel life as a comic book artist. I debuted in 1996 coloring the Invisible Dirty Old Man, published by Red Giant Productions. Then I colored for First Alvo, Zenescope, Dark Horse and most recently, Dabel Brothers.
