'My master's final project, Ever After, is a book about love. And a lot of other things, like fate and mythology and Shakespeare, but mostly about love. The Mysteries of Harris Burdick was a huge inspiration, as was Paris je t'aime. And it has illustrations, of course. Twelve of them, in fact, and each one has a titles and some text, and a story behind it - but it's up to you to decide what the story is.' Ricardo Bessa is an illustrator based in London.

Ricardo Bessa was born in Penafiel, Portugal, in 1989, and spent the first thirteen years of his life confidently announcing to everyone that he would one day be a veterinarian. After studying Art & Multimedia at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon, Bessa earned his MA in Illustration at Kingston University, and is now pretty certain he doesn't want to be a vet.
