Dancing Jap Girl

Last weekend I went to a Disco (dance club) in Nagoya. That's my impression of the thing...

Hand-drew, then scanned and photoshop painted. Its just a sketch with a lot of effects, the lines are quite loose. Hope you liked it!

Indie Gri (Ingrid)

Ingrid is one of that very rare type of friend that you must be glad if you find one of that kind in your entire life. As me, she is trying to understant the world by walking alone across it, living new experiences and discovering alot more of herself. She is fully emotive, passioned, girly-latin-lover person and there`s not a better place to someone like that to be as Paris.

Yesterday I read her blog, all the posts, a kind of diary of her adventures. Just like mine! And I think I discovered a new friend within an old one. Funny how things change when you know secrets about people. But Ingrid isn`t ashamed of telling her fellings, her fears, her desires... and she do it so well that inspired me to make a little draw of her. Hope you liked Gui! Love!

Sketching at Work!

Don't tell my boss, but I just can't hold the will of sketching in any piece of paper. Bills, Letters, anything with a blank part would do. As the computer saves a work or load the e-mails, my eyes turn to the block at the side of my keyboard, and I draw without compromise, no rush, just for fun.

When somebody crosses the run and says: "hey, that look like Terminator" So, I make some elements to transform my drawing onto that.

Usually I draw something that I found interesting that day. If I see a pretty girl at the street, it's a good theme for another drawing. And so on...

Musashi - the path of the warrior

Altought not recognized as a true bushi by some japanese experts, Musashi is a icon of the samurai culture. He started from nothing, as a hungry little boy in a small village called Miyamoto, and became one of the greatest warriors in Japan. Famous by using both swords during a embate, Musashi has won over 60 deadly duels during his live. I see his personal path as a analogyof my own live, walking through wildness, facing every kind of difficulties, meeting important friends and always chasing the dream of become "strong". It`s easy to imagine the decisions of take as duels, the ways of life as unknow paths throghout montains and forests...

This is a simple study over the character, I was trying to get the thing again in Painter. Has being over 4 months since I last used it. The drawing is a little loose for my style, but I`m posting anyway. Later I intent to do a better homenage to one of my favorite historical figure: Miyamoto Musashi.
