We are Tânia Falcão and Avelar Lucas, a couple of portuguese designers, illustrators and musicians.
We met 14 years ago, doing tequila shots in a bar in Ericeira and when we sobered up we realized we had many things in common. The love for art, design and music.
Later we worked together in an advertising agency and in 2012 we decided to create our own project of digital art – FalcaoLucas.
We create animated Art Gifs, Social Media Animated GIFs, Digital Illustrations, 3D Art, Motion Graphics, Design and Editorial projects.

Their art is sure to make anyone take a second look!
