Adamastor is an Illustration Studio based in Lisbon, Portugal, composed by Pedro Semeano & Susana Diniz.
As an homage to portuguese history, we named our studio after a mithologic creature called Adamastor, that haunted the minds of our ancient navigators, during their pursuit for new lands to discover. Adamastor is a figuration of all the challenges we must face, to achieve what’s beyond our imagination.
“Even as I spoke, an immense shape Materialised in the night air,
Grotesque and enormous stature. With heavy jowls, and an unkempt beard
Scowling from shrunken, hollow eyes. Its complexion earthy and pale,
Its hair grizzled and matted with clay, Its mouth coal black, teeth yellow with decay.”
