I’m a 12 year old boy again
So it has been confirmed this morning that George Pérez is coming to Brazil for the 8th International Comics Festival in november, and I literally gasped when I read it. Two thoughts that I’ve been having on loop n my head ever since:
1) The best thing I’ve ever done is schedule my vacation for november
2) HOW THE HELL do I pick just one book for him to sign?!
This is a little sketch I just drew on Photoshop, to get my imagination flowing. It has to do with the graphic novel I’m creating, that I mentioned a few posts earlier.
Never Stop Drawing
“Don’t ever listen to that people who tell you drawing; reading or fantasy is a waste of time. You already know who they are. Never stop drawing. Drawing is our stuff.”
My buddy Daniel Mainé, creator of the awesome Bearton City, who’ll never know how much the 10-yo boy in this 36-yo man’s head needed to hear that.
So this happened: I bought Eddy Barrows1 2012 sketchbook and comissioned a Northstar sketch from him on the back cover and HOLY WOW, that’s one handsome Jean-Paul! LOVE IT.
So it finally arrived - My copy of IDW’s Rocketeer Artist’s Edition. It’s so much more awesome than I expected. Dave Stevens was so good it should be illegal.
I may have FINALLY begun to write my future graphic novel. For over two years I’ve had this idea bouncing around inside my head, that I think would result in a really cool comic.
However, my horrible tendency to procrastination, my ever-growing pile of insecurities and my sheer dismay at the amount of work necessary to move this idea forward have always stopped me from getting started.
I’ve had this Word document in my computer for AGES, where I would, every once in a while, take note of some idea or other related to this project. I have a sketchbook dedicated to it, and the last doodle was added in the first quarter of 2012!
But today, still metaphorically kicking and screaming, I managed to start writing the damn thing. A few ideas that needed to get sorted out for my story to make sense have FINALLY clicked in my head, and I powered through my laziness and discouragement.
Recent developments at work, as well as a somewhat gloomy potential future resultant from those developments, may have contributed to the final shot of despair that I needed to get off my ass.
Now I just have to keep this going.

So, first post of the year!
This is a collaboration with my amazingly talented friend ByM, for Bear Nerd’s 2013 calendar. My part of the drawing was originally intended to be a single drawing for 2012’s calendar, but we ended up using it as the basis for this one.
So, Happy New Year, everybody!
So, this is my contribution to the Hawkeye Initiative. I absolutely LOVE the idea behind the project, and I think it’s perfect in showing exactly just how much gender inequality and objetification are ingrained in mainstream comics.
The original art appeared in Marvel’s Generation Hope #15, drawn by Tim Green II.

I am enthusiastic and unapologetic about my love for art, and I’m an absolutely loyal friend.
