Model Drawings / Desenhos Modelo







While most people work on their image towards others, it's extremely hard for me to view myself through the eyes of others.
So everything I write and do, it's like if others are nonexistent. It's hard for me to write in an impersonal manner.
This is seen often by others as ingenuity. And it may be, in some way, if we think that we have to succeed in a world where everyone has to wear masks. But I never wanted a mask, and I'll do everything I can not to have to wear one ever. It takes work, but it's hard for me to live wearing a mask, extremely hard. It's like double-thinking everything you do.

In progress IV / Em progresso IV



I know I'm kind of neurotic but I know this isn't OK yet. Maybe it needs to become not as chaotic as it seems.
Taking a lot of time because I'm working on several canvases at the same time (and also because I'm neurotic).

Lately I've been trying to organize all my work.

Dance Drawing / Desenho Dança




Some people have their own style.
I prefer to continuously create new styles, it's more fulfilling to me and I'm unable to have just one style - my brain doesn't let me have just one. It's like if I'm in improvisation mood all the time, I'm unable to repeat myself. That's why I'll never have a normal job. Or I'll do everything to be an artist or I'll save money, make sacrifices and create a new business and innovate constantly.
Any other job,.. I would be bored after a week (other people get bored too I know, but there's a difference between someone who CAN stand it, and someone who see's it as pure suicide). It sucks to be like this because you just can't fit anywhere, you have to create your own place in order to fit somewhere.

In progress / Em progresso


In progress.
Too many deadlines on me now.

***

Em progresso.
Não paro no freelance há mais de um mês e não sei porque é que me aparece sempre tudo ao mesmo tempo! Tenho que arranjar uma máquina que me faça não ter que dormir. Ouvi dizer que o Tesla tinha inventado algo assim, será?
Mas quero acabar estas coisas que ando a tentar fazer por mim.

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.
