An independent Artist with the capacity of a design firm, Dacosta has been dubbed a ‘guru’ of vector illustration. This self-taught, multifaceted illustrator and award winning designer who started drawing from the moment he realized crayons make better tools of expression than snacks. Designing art professionally for the past 10 years, Dacosta is currently based in Vancouver and is the founder of Chocolate Soop Inc. A creative studio influenced by Japanese culture, graffiti and industrial design, his innovation challenges existing conventions and concepts while maintaining, as noted by a client, “a rare combination of artistic vision, technical execution and commercial sensibility”. His passion and philosophy is grounded in his belief that visual art must be imaginative and bold. He strives to create the highest quality work on every project, so whether it be through toys, concept designs, illustrations, or an animated project.
