'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

Fiz um portfolio sobre a minha exposição Natura Naturans:
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.

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.
about deviantart eclipse.(added stuff)personally, i don't like the new layout-at all. i just needed to get this off my chest.
deviantart is the last website that's good for art, the whole reason why i buy core and remain active here is because i can fully express myself with custom boxes and stuff. profile customization is one of the best things about it, now it's gonna be "sleek" and "modern" like every other website-
although i do see a lot of people who are pleased with the layout, which makes me hope that they'll at least make the old version available for those who prefer it.
if you're like me and you're extremely upset about this change, the best way to reach the staff is through this survey:
it seems like almost everybody commenting on the beta test journal has got the same idea that i do- but unfortunately i dont know if the staff is going to pay attention to the comments on here so i urge you to please consider fill

Do you know what fires your imaginationEverybody has an imagination. Some of us have learned to use ours better than others. People say they aren't creative, but everybody is creative, because everybody has an imagination.
Imagination needs to be fed, but not necessarily in the form your medium. Because that is akin to cannibalism to me.
Do you know what fires your imagination?
-- Justin Maller ekud
spyed: Why do creative people need a community?
ekud: Everybody needs a community, it's a deviation from the norm to have creativity be a defining characteristic of your person. A central tenant of your life. However you want to say it. So to find a group of people that share that, and have that affinity, is a basic human need. To have affinity with others.
spyed: Does having access to a community of like-minded people help the creative process in your view?
ekud: Sharing your affinity with others is what's going to feed that basic need that you're not necessarily going to be able to find within arms
Happy 15th Birthday!In April I wrote a post reflecting on my 15 years at DeviantArt, since the project began in April of 2000 and was launched to the public on August 7th. I went back and re-read what I wrote, and wow, speaking of audacious I'm pretty hardcore in this post. I write from my heart sometimes and then I hit post and that's that. So for our official 15th Birthday I wanted to re-share a link to that post:
And then today, I wrote this reflection for you as a toast & thanks for all the llamas:

Summer Life Update/SDCC 2018Hi y'all! Just a quick life update, in case you're curious what I've been up to:
At last, this spring I graduated from San Jose State this with a Bachelor's of the Arts in Animation and Illustration, and his summer, I've been working as an intern with Sony Playstation. Specifically, I'm an animator working with their studio Pixelopus on the upcoming game Concrete Genie... so far, I'm loving it! The new job also meant moving out of my hometown, probably for good this time-- The new apartment is much closer to San Francisco now, which is exciting! Expensive, though. Woof.
I'm still doin' my usual comic freelancing: recently I've worked on Archie's Cosmo #5 and IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog #4 and the upcoming Sonic #8. Keep an eye out for that last one... not only does it introduce Silver to the series, but an all-new character! I'll be at San Diego Comic-Con on July 19th, as a panelist on the Sonic the Hedgehog panel to talk about it and later do signings at IDW's b
