Pedro received his training from the University of California, Santa Cruz, Scientific Illustration Graduate Certificate Program. For his ambitious internship project, he created two posters for the Lab’s NestWatch citizen-science project. Pedro painted 75 birds for this project, first creating a pencil drawing on Duralene paper, painting over it with gouache. He then turned the paper over and added detail using Verithin and Prismacolor colored pencils.
After completing his internship, Pedro taught scientific illustration and illustrated the Birds of the Azores. He is currently working as a freelance illustrator and residing overseas where he teaches and participates in urban sketching and science illustration workshops—and of course, continues to watch and paint birds.
