I just made a portfolio about my exhibition using deviantart's new system, check it out:
Fiz um portfolio sobre a minha exposição Natura Naturans:
'A Serra' Exhibition
I just finished making a portfolio about my latest exhibition called "A Serra", which I did together with my wife Juliana about our life outside the big city and closer to nature (although the city is not far away). The exhibition is taking place in the Serra da Cantareira State Park, in a museum which has an incredible view of the city of São Paulo, seen from above.
The exhibit features paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor, drawings, photos, cloths, trees planted by us and land art, compositions with objects we collected from nature.
In the portfolio, besides the pictures of the exhibit and some of the ones we showcased, I also put pictures I took in the park during the period of exhibition.
Here's the address of the portfolio: expo-serra.daportfolio.com

Exposicao - ExhibitionI'm making an exhibition in a week. It's called Natura Naturans (the name was inspired by the philosophy of Baruch Espinosa). The exhibition will be in a place called IQ Art Gallery | Chakras, in São Paulo, Brazil. If you happen to be in São Paulo, you are invited. There will be a vernissage on July 14th. You can see the invitation (in portuguese) here: http://tamino.deviantart.com/art/Natura-Naturans-128529230
I'll talk and post more about the exhibition soon.

Serra / WoodsEstou começando a escrever sobre minhas experiências aqui onde estou morando, na Serra.

I'm starting to write about my experiences here where I'm living, in the woods.
I've only made a version in portuguese so far, so if you can't speak portuguese you can still see the pictures and try to make something out of it if you want... maybe I'll do a version in english someday.

Blue X Red PuppetsIt's amazing how manicheist and dichotomous the American society is.
I don't know if people actually gave thought to the fact that the only two political parties available are RED and BLUE, while the RED party is headed towards warfare and the BLUE one is sponsoring peace. The Blue guy is going to help Africa, stop the war, in other words: do everything the world is expecting of the USA, especially after so much war. The Red guy is way too old, endorses the war and has a vice that is the laughing stock of the moment.
So, do you want the puppet on the left, or the puppet on the right? The peace guy or the war guy?
They don't really give that many options, do they?
It seems to work in cycles, if you know what I mean. After a few years of "peace" with the Blue guy, the public opinion will be ready for some more Red action.
Just two sides of the same old coin... "Democracy"
Recycle Your Organic WasteHave you ever wondered where does you trash go? If you ever thought about that then it's time to start thinking about what you can do to minimize your waste.
Along with other recyclable materials like paper, metals and plastics, organic leftovers are also extremely hazardous to the environment when put together in large amounts.
Each country and city handles their trash differently, of course there are places where the government does a good job, but even so, there is still a lot of handling, transportation and pollution that could be minimized.
Yes, even recycling pollutes a lot.
If you have a garden or any patch of land you can create a place where you can compost these leftovers. As a result you will minimize the impact you have on the ecosystem and on the city's garbage handling. The resulting compost is a great fertilizer that can be used to nurture any plants you might have on your garden, being a good alternative for chemical fertilizers.

QuestioningsI wanted to know what the people around here do for a living. Do you make money with your art?
One of the main reasons I became a painter was as my profession, I did make enough money in the last 5 years to live well and support myself, without much direct economic help from my parents. It wasn´t so hard because my father taught me a lot about painting and my mother helped me to sell because she already had a lot of experience selling my father´s work.
But my parents separated some years ago, the situation still didn´t settle, and they don´t help me much anymore. It turns out the family unit did have something to do with my stability and now it´s gone. I know what I have to do now, I have to develop my career on my own, but the thing is I don´t really like the art world, the galleries and market. So I´d have to sell myself to sell my work.
In fact, I´m running away from all of it, I don´t really want a career, to be a famous artist or anythi
away from herehello.
i´ve been away for a while. not from myself, but from here.
i´m not living in são paulo anymore. i´m not even in a city anymore.
it´s not far, but it´s a much calmer and beautiful place.
since i got here i studied a lot about astronomy (i have a 200mm reflector telescope!), plants (i can eat a lot of things from my garden now, and have some beautiful flowers), ornithology (i have identified 55 species of birds so far) and lots of other things.
now, about the paintings... i´ve been painting more in the last couple of months.. now that i´m settled i have more time to paint, which i didn´t have in the beginning.
i´ll post more of them soon.
i am also organizing my gallery, creating folders, etc...
that´s it for now.
GrandfatherMy Grandfather has just turned 80 years old.
He is a very important Brazilian artist, and was a militant communist.
He is a very skilled painter and engraver.
This is him today:
I just received lots of used and old art materials from him, as I did receive from my father at various occasions before. It´s very good to make the most of their leftovers, learn about new materials and techniques. Put everything into order, clean it and take care of it. It really makes me feel the meaning of the word "legacy".
His name is Mario Gruber by the way.
The DERE TypesExplained Tsuki Style.
These are all the dere's I know
If there are more, please tell me and I'll add on :3
Bakaderederived from baka, idiot and dere, lovey dovey
- A bakadere as the name implies is a stupid idiot in love, clumsy with the way they're in love, but super in love :3
Bodere: They lash out when embarrassed, and prefer fists over words.
Byoukidere: Usually very sweet and kind, but suffer from some disease (usually a fatal one.) They are often frail and weak in nature.
Dandere derived from silent, is simply a silent type
- Dandere is someone who doesn't talk, is shy and antisocial until the right person comes along, at that point they will talk and become more confidant.
- Daruderes are those who are nonchalant to those who they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them
Icon Contest [closed]
Hi. I'm running another contest.
I really need a new icon, an icon that I can probably use for a long time (for my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuMhcz39FjIPeHgOEyChvcg?disable_polymer=true)
so!! why not hold a contest
-USE HIS NORMAL FORM, ignore the monster and past
-No pixel icons, it will ruin the quality on YouTube.
-You CAN animate it, but make sure that the first frame is the main frame, because most people won't be able to see the animation unless they see a notification of me pop up.
-You can do anything with it! Background can be anything, any color, I don't really mind.
-You can shade it, leave it flat, etc.
-Any form of art is allowed! Cell shaded, realistic, paper, lineless, ANYTHING!
-I'd prefer head shots (shoulder to head), but if you want to squeeze in something else, feel free!
-He can wear anything!!
-I don't really have a preference of how it should look. I'm happy with anything :>
