My Bio
I was born and live in Sao Paulo, Brazil; but also lived in Japan for almost one year, land of my father´s ancestors.

1) You can see here the art books I´m studying and the best I recommend; the courses I´m taking on subjects like illustration, drawing and painting; and also my ongoing creations or projects - both on visual arts or literature - here:… .

2) I plan to organize two contests a year here: for animal rights, on the first half of the year; and for human rights, on the second half of the year. If you want to help me with the second contest, you could donate points or notify me about other ideas. You can see the results of the first contest here:… .

3) I got a degree as journalist 6 years ago and worked in the leading newspaper of my country, until I decided that it was time to dedicate myself truly to the art. Well, my detailed story with this changing and my challenge of creating new things is here:… .

4) I´ve also written a short novel for teens/children I´m trying to publish (with some others in project) and produced a short environmental flash animation:… .


5) Visual artists who inspire me in a whole: Walt Disney, John Lasseter (for Pixar), Hayao Miyazaki, Osamu Tezuka, Stan Lee and Mauricio de Sousa (now specially for Monica Jovem).

I love watching animation, specially Japanese anime, and comics as well, including manga. In the manga/anime world, I praise also especially the masterpieces Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, Elfen Lied, Futari H and Dragon Ball. I like a lot Love Hina, Toloveru and B Gata H Key too.

Some writers who impressed me: Marcos Rey, Paulo Coelho, Mario Vargas Llosa, Ernest Hemingway, Herman Hesse and George Orwell.

I could already visit England, Spain, Italy, Greece, Croatia, Argentina and United States. Maybe we didn´t meet anywhere? :)

I´m very addicted to this deviantArt. If you get any idea to save me from spending so many hours here, please, help me! XD I need to really study, practice and create out there. This was my original idea, but I´m trying others too:… .

I have a blog where I write reviews on literature, but it´s in Portuguese:…. If you´d like to add me on Facebook, please tell me where you met me, ok?…

Hi! I´ve just created this blog: . It´s in Portuguese, mainly for Brazilian public for now, but we´re accepting contributors from everywhere (we may translate your text if in English; Spanish is also accepted as it´s similar to Portuguese) to post arts about their favourites places of tourism and enjoyment! Interested? My e-mail: (I´m not accessing deviantArt that much lately...) Bye! Maurício

Hi! I´m inviting every writer in the world who cares for animals rights sake to submit your creations so we can publish a book about this issue! This book will be at least an e-book in Amazon, but I´d like to make a printed version also. You can send your literature until January 31st 2014. The length of the text should be of about 8,000 characters (with spaces), which means about 1350 words or a bit more than two pages. You can submit a longer length text or more than one work, but then you should contribute more for the project (read more below). And make sure to know what I mean by animal rights: it´s the abolitionist a

Hello, dear friends! Finally, we have the results of the 2nd Arts for Animal Rights Contest - ! A total of 26 people I trust in (about their engagement on animal rights) voted, and you can see below what they preferred! Before reading it, please, notice that all the arts we received are so beautiful! Some arts received more points because they were preferred over others, not that the others were not good. Maybe some weren´t communicating enough about animal rights, in spite of they are very good arts, for example. Or maybe not the way people liked... A
