I’ve been meaning to write an actual post for a while and I didn’t want to just keep sending shared pictures from instagram, so that made me disappear briefly. Not that I will stop posting new images from there, it’s just that I think I need find a balance between these two posting methods or I’ll just seem too lazy, I like to share actual words from time to time too.
I have some very specific posts planned for the near future where I analyze some of my most recent projects, more as a thinking out loud thing but I hope it will serve as valid points for you guys that end up here hoping to see not only art, but some discussion about it.
For now I just wanted to state that I’m still alive, still working and will resume postage from now on. And as additional proof of that, below are some glimpses of what I’ve been working on, that I already posted on instagram but waited to do it here too as a bulk thing and avoid the impression I mention on the first paragraph.
see ya soon!
By the end of February we had a release party for our Graphic Novel, called Sabor Brasilis which I talked about here and here.
It was a lot of fun, a lot of people among friends, family and fans showed up and we signed tons of books on an amazing evening at the ‘Gibiteria’ comic shop in São Paulo, owned by couple and their daughter, Aninha Costa. Lovely people who are now dear friends.
We just now released a short video with some of the highlights of the event, shot by Ricardo Hirsch and edited by George Schall, my partner on the art duties of Sabor Brasilis and you can see it embedded above. Hint: set the video to roll on HD, makes all the difference.
Have fun watching it, enjoy the great soundtrack and see if you can spot a certain Mr. Fábio Moon among the attendees. ;-)
(In case you’re wondering, at the table from left to right are: Pablo Casado, Hector Lima, George Schall and me.)
The Legend Of Luther Strode #3, published by Image Comics just hit the stands and it has a special illustration I did for it. I was kindly invited by my good friend Felipe Sobreiro, who is in charge of the coloring duties ever since day one of the series to contribute with a pin up for it, and I was happy and thrilled to be a small part of such a superb piece of comic bookery. =D
Be sure to snag your copy but don’t forget about the first 2 issues and a whole first season that was published last year, available in trade paperback called The Strange Talent of Luther Strode. It’s worth every penny and every piece of buzz it’s been getting from fans and press.
Also thanks to Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore, writer and artist respectively, for having me. Such a big honor to share pages with these three talented dudes! o/
