"Great artists have no country", Alfred Du Musset.
I'm not young, but I'm feeling like a tabula rasa now. I'm been changing my concepts and I'm now rising against paradigms, stereotypes, social standards and labels. I'm against everything that is.
Unfortunately my only weapon for now is drawing to express my ideas. I love comics and I pursuit the footsteps of my heros Dash Shaw, Adrian Tomine, Guy Delisle and Craig Thompson.
I'm a coffee-addict and my favorite artist is John Arne Sæterøy.

The victims of fashion, art and cool here in town started a project of playing cards and invited some artists. I'm not even close from the art scene members here but I joined the project because a friend of mine, also named Thiago, was part of it. The thing was so disorganized that Thiago himself left the project. By seeing it as a good opportunity, I decided to continue. So each suit would be raffled between the artists involved something's wrong here, because the project has two whole decks but the number of artists doesn't fulfill even a single deck! But that's OK, not my problem. I was hoping to get some Club suit because I wanted
OK, I'm sorry, but this is big. (that's what she said!)
The Coletivo WC, a web comic collective of which I am a member and of which I have talked here before, launched its first print magazine, Sanitário (Portuguese language for "toilet", despite it resembles "Sanitarium"), a compilation of short comics from some of the members. What I didn't expect to happen was an event thrown by Comic House, the only comic book store in town, to launch the magazine. The owner announced the launch of the magazine + a book signing on Facebook and requested our presence.
I was not fan of the idea (actually I'm still not fan of it) and I didn't want to
That's it again. My idea in managing to be a comic artist is not only make a living, but getting to know other artists, getting to know other ideas, creative processes, making friends. I expand my ideas by reaching other artists' works, that's why I like to exchange comics, be in zines and all.

Larry's minicomics are not just well-drawn but also have inventive scripts. The very small formats are so convenient because they fit anywhere, they're easy to carry. My favorite one
