About me

My name is Guilherme Gustavo Condeixa and I am a book cover artist. I smoke a Big Ben pipe, I prefer black Cavendish and cherry flavored tobacco and I have a majestic beard. I like rainy days at the office and I enjoy listening to music while I work. I love being a part of a publishers growth and I am not a freelancer by choice. Now I am used to it.

I dream of the day my kind will be paid accordingly and I yearn for a time when everything is not urgent.

As a visual artist, I am interested in contemporary art – my practice is installation and collage. As a goalkeeper for Alexandra Park FC,  I fully live the joys of playing in lower league football. I am also the newsletter editor, where I write about best and worst kits, my views as a goalkeeper, and my usual crazy suggestions. Occasionally I also have some injures. But I am living the dream! I also have a passion for retro football. I like prog rock and documentaries.

Because he’s the designer that publishers deserves, but not the one they need right now. So, we’ll ignore him, because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

  1. Hi Guilherme! I really like this About page… a time when things are not urgent (and pay is fair and employment plentiful) — I can definitely relate to that. Thanks so much for checking out my blog and for the follow. I want to peek around here and see what your work looks like, I’ve never known a book cover artist before! Cheers, Laura
