Old Paintings / Pinturas Antigas















I'm organizing all my work and I found it funny because I think I'm approaching a similar creative process to the one I first used when I first started to try to create something back in the third grade of my degree in painting, in 2006.
I had no idea of what I was doing. I always drew since ever, but only then I started trying to sketch to create compositions. Then I used the same thought process and tried to do the same on canvas. 
I started from one side and finished on the other without any sort of planning. Then I tried to create harmony.
The brush strokes were sometimes stuck, sometimes free, but I realised I'm sort of doing the same thing now but with more experience and knowledge on my back.
Had I known what I was doing at the time and I would be much better now.

Estou a organizar todo o meu trabalho e deparei-me com as pinturas que fiz no 3º ano, em 2006. Foi a primeira vez que tentei criar algo mas não fazia a mínima ideia do que estava a fazer.
Sempre desenhei desde sempre e me dei bem com a cor, mesmo não pintando com tinta, só desenhando.
Foi assim que comecei a tentar criar algo no diário gráfico, tentando criar composições sem grande sentido.
Depois passei para a tela e fiz o mesmo, começava de um lado e terminava noutro sem planear nada. Procurava imagens que gostava e pintava-as para ver se funcionavam. No final tentava criar harmonia de cores.
Estou a fazer algo semelhante agora mas com mais fundamento e experiência. Se soubesse o que estava a fazer na altura estaria muito melhor hoje.

Dance Drawing / Desenho Dança

Ballet Dance Drawing: Ink and watercolor on papel 


For years and years, I have been working amid total chaos. Lot of time wasted because of this. 
But now, I decided to change. I'm reorganizing everything and soon I'll be more efficient in all possible ways. 

***

Durante anos andei a trabalhar no meio do maior caos anárquico possível de imaginar. Decidi mudar. Ando a reorganizar tudo para me tornar mais eficiente.

Roland Digh's CD Illustrations / Ilustração CD
















These are the illustrations I did for the Canadian band Roland Digh. I really enjoyed doing this work because it has to do a lot with the type of drawing I love to develop and also, they were great to work with!
Listen to their music here: Roland Digh

Estas foram as ilustrações que fiz para a banda canadiana Roland Digh. Adorei fazer este trabalho pois tem bastante a ver com o tipo de desenho que gosto de desenvolver e, além do mais, eles são super simpáticos.
