Almost didn't notice that i've reached 15000 page views... have been busy, with tue beginning of master's degree in education wich, unfortunately, leaves me little time for my beloved artistic pursuits. My motto of nulla dies sine linea is under threat.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who stopped by, who gave a comment, who took a moment to look at my artwork. Some of you i already consider as friends.

On another front, the new PequenosArtistas… are almost online.

So, i've been tagged by Bear48. Not so merry thanks!

And now, eight random facts about me:

Random fact #1 - I'm at my happiest collecting seashells at low tide on the beach.
Random fact #2 - I really love my old car, but i'm considering trading it for an older car.
Random fact #3 - I read way too many books, i always have dozens of books in the to-read pile.
Random fact #4 - I love winter weather, yet i'm duplicious.
Random fact #5 - I do believe we will meet space aliens someday. In fact, i do believe i'm a space alien myself.
Random fact #6 - Sometimes i feel like a character in a good novel... like Stephen Daedalus in Ulisses, or, more to the point, like loplop in la fême 100 têtes
Random fact #7 - I strongly dislike shallow people.
Random fact #8 - I detest tagging meme games.... or not?

And now, i shall pass the misery to:

Never did learn to do the icon thingy.

or, growing insanely disquiet;
or, climbing at walls;
or, terminally bored.

I have to face it, i have to admit it: i hate vacations. I hate to have the time to do nothing at all. My brain feels srpingloaded, ready to burst.

I'm missing the hectic pace of work with the….
At least i have a collab project to keep going with Ah, work, lovely tonic for a restless mind.

For a teacher, the end of the school year  is an extremely hectic, tiring time. But now the curtains are descending; children have gone home, on holidays; projects wind down, everything slows down. As for the PequenosArtistas… , they are gone, as was expected. Next year i'll start againg with a new batch of pupils.

Still, other projects await: an interesting collaboration with PaulaFrade and limajoser (wich i haven't met personally but i am extremely impressed by the quality of his work) mixing illustration and children's literature that we hope to take as far as we can go!

Three merry artists on a mission...

Finally caved in to several pressures and went ahead to create a gallery to display my pupil's works in several media. It's at Pequenos Artistas… (little artists in portuguese). This will be a digital showcase for all the groovy madness that goes on on my and classes. Please bear in mind that my pupils are 10 to 12 years old, who love to experiment. Go and see my (our) Little Artist's!…

Rules: The 1st player of this "game" starts with the topic "6 weird habits/things/hates about yourself".

People who get tagged MUST write a journal about their 6 weird habits/things/hates as well and state this rule clearly.

In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names.

Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their deviant page comments and tell them to read yours...

1 - i hate people who don't read books.
2 - boys bands, liked by my students, are one of my targets and always a laughing point whenever my students play with me
3 - weird things? i once had a pet rabbit. His eye fell out.
4- more weird things? i'm a walking disaster. Everything happens to me. Still, i never get (seriously) hurt.
5 - if i have to choose between a simple path and a complex one, i always choose the complex one, yet i'm a practical person. Just like to know things deeply.
6 - I drive an old car, and i love it.

Now, who should i tag...?
