O Colega de Quarto - The Roommate

I worked on a four page comic based on a very popular urban legend. I'll post the 4 pages here, and you guys can try and guess which urban legend it is before I post the final page. I apologize about posting the pages only in portuguese, but I didn't have time to translate them. Still, I think you may be able to guess with only the help of the drawings.

Hope you enjoy, and keep checking the blog for the next pages!

Zona Negra 2 - a sneak peek

Finally, after a few printing issues, the latest issue of Zona - Zona Negra II - is out! I already have my book, and it looks awesome. I'm not just saying that because I have a comic published in there (well, maybe a little bit), but I seriously think the books have been growing in quality and it's a joy being a witness, as well as a part of, this progression.
I can't really show you my work just yet - you'll have to buy the book, which you can do online through the project's blog or, if you're in Portugal, chances are your local comic shop will carry it. I will, however, share a few photos that work as a sneak peak to the comic I drew, written by my friend and Kubrick's Garage co-creator and writer, J.B. Martins. Enjoy!

Todd Ingram - Now with weird colors

Since I couldn't make anything new to post the last few days, I decided to throw some colors on the Todd Ingram (the super powered vegan from Scott Pilgrim) sketch I had to post here. I'm going to blame this color scheme on sleep deprivation. Still, hope you enjoy! More to come soon!

Todd Ingram

Well, my scanner has decided to be a little bit of a party pooper this week and I haven't been able to use it. I'm hoping I can get whatever problem it has fixed this weekend so I can get on with work, but while it's not working, here's a photo of a drawing I did today and that I plan on coloring: it's Todd Ingram, the super-powered vegan from the Scott Pilgrim comics. Enjoy, and hopefully I'll have the colored version up soon!

For those of you that don't know, FIBDA - also known as Festival Internacional de BD da Amadora - is the main comic festival in Portugal. I never got the chance to go before, because it's kind of far from where I live, and it's not always possible to travel 600 km on a weekend, but finally this year I got to go. And as an invited author, to sign autographs and draw! It was a great experience. Not only did I get to share it with my talented better half Pedro Carvalho, but we got to see friends we don't get to see often, we got to meet other talented people and, most of all, we got to draw. A lot. Which is awesome. I met some really nice people who support my work ,and that really makes me want to keep pushing and keep going, no matter how hard it gets. It's not always easy, but events like this boost my confidence and my will power. So now I'll leave you with a little photo sum-up of the weekend I spent at FIBDA.

This is me, with my usual nobility, sat down and ready for the first signing to begin. GO!

Ah! Signing already. That's good. I was signing the first Zona Negra, so I think I as drawing a zombie.
It was the only zombie I drew, too. I felt proud.

Here's Pedro Carvalho and João Raz.

Here's the line-up of artists signing on Saturday. You can only see a little bit of my head, I'm behind Pedro.

After some long hours of drawing, what do artists do? Draw more, of course. We all went to dinner and couldn't help drawing all over. This part of the table was mine, Pedro's and Fil's.

On to day 2! Here's me and Paulo Marques. Photo courtesy of Bongop :)

Here I am again, totally focused on drawing the Hammer Killer. Whack! Photo courtesy of Nuno Neves.

Here's a super quick drawing of Scott Pilgrim I drew for Bongop!

Aaand here's a Atomic Robo I drew for someone else.

I don't have more photos for now, I spent all the time drawing and didn't take many photos. However, you can expect some more photos the next few days, since my friends will probably get me some more photos.

See you soon with some new scribbles!
