"In addition to terrific art which speaks for itself, Cabaleiro has the remarkable talent of accurately interpreting character descriptions and professionally representing them on the page. He hit every deadline and invited feedback to best capture his work. I highly recommend and would gladly collaborate again with him in the future!"

--Michael Paul

Author, Screenwriter


"I commissioned two drawings by him to use on the covers of two books I am working on. I was very happy with both and love that they give the books a very unique style and have had a lot of positive feedback on the drawing for the first book (the second has not been released yet). I would highly recommend Carlos to anyone in need of quality illustration."

"Carlos!!! These are AMAZING!!! Seriously, I cannot thank you enough... Not only you are incredibly talented, but you've been very nice and professional too! I don't even know what to say... but it turned out WAY better than I expected it! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will certainly keep you in mind for other gifts (hopefully more "normal" ones)! Really appreciate all your help."
