José Luiz Benicio or simply Benicio, as he is well-known, is an Brazilian illustrator from Rio Pardo, Rio Grande do Sul. Benicio started his carreer when he was 16 at Clarin Publicidade, that was in 1953. After that he moved to Rio de Janeiro where he joined Maccann Erickon Publicidade working for big names such as Coca-cola. Benicio became really popular in the movies industry in which he design over 300 posters, especially in the 70's.

Besides posters Benicio has a series of Pin-ups, pocket-books and other sorts of illustration projects. In his site you can take a better look at his work, even though it's in portugues I'm sure it won't be a problem because the images speak for themselves :)
