It was waiting between the pages...

Last days...

Swenney Todd again. Great. I wanna be Tim Burton and be married with Johnny Depp. Sorry, Helena.

My Blueberry Nights. (the name in Portuguese is not good...) Delicious surprise. Remind me my coffee afternoons, without all the sentimentalism, of course, and more unpretentious.

I starded to watch a italian movie (Il Piu Bel Giorno Della Mia Vita ) on TV (yes, on TV! Ohhh!), while I'm waiting the Elton John's concert. In the end, no movie, no concert. My bed won.

Important fact: I finished Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Preachett, finally! Now is the time of The Tales of Beedle The Bardo, J. K. Rowling. How long it will take? Just Bob knows...

Retrospective II

My frustrations, now:
1º - I'm fed up because I saw the image of Marvin of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy starring (against his will) a logo from a toy (weird) factory. I'm frustraded because of two reasons: the ilegal use of images and, of course, in the first second that I saw the cute paranoid android stamping the toy packaging, immediately I thought that it was possible buy his desired action figure. But, it was not. So predictable...

2º - I couldn't finish properly my illustration that I would like to post at the Illustration Friday, maybe next time...

3º - I can't decide what I will do this year. Great...

4º - I can't make my book's pile to read get lower.

At 6 a.m.

No quintal, minha mãe e eu tentando tirar uma boa foto, apesar do fato de estar muito escuro para se estar acordado...

At the backyard, my mom and I trying to take a good picture, despite the fact that it was too dark to be awake...

Little Children

Movie of the week:
Little Children (Pecados Íntimos) directed by Todd Field. With Kate Winslet, Patrick Wilson, Jennifer Connelly.

Good, I think. I could not take a conclusion about it.
The end is a that kind of that depends of your reaction (?). It can be positive end if you think that is ok, the right thing was chosen, and the final scenes are just negation of all the rest.
But if you think: Oh my God! Everything just for this??? It's because all the movie is about how the life can be hopeless and boring forever.
I think.


Last Saturday we (The Cajoo's guys and me) participated of the World Wide Sketchcrawl.
After few hours we created our own route. Stopping in a charming coffee place, we talked and, some of us, drew.
The only drawback was the heat. The day was not apropriated to people that is sensitive to hot
weather, like me.
Some pictures: (not drawings, sorry)

Just a little bit late...

Fotos que foram tiradas nos últimos dias de 2008 e na primeira hora de 2009

Eu sei que o clima natalino já acabou, mas... I know the xmas vibe already went away, but...

Alguém fala russo?

Eu reencontrei um site que tinha me inspirado alguns anos atrás.
Muito bonito, mas um tipo de beleza que é pertubadora, obscura (como o próprio nome diz).
E acabei descobrindo que os responsáveis pelo trabalho eram russos, e até aí, ótimo, se não fosse a vontade de ler o blog que também está escrito em russo...
De qualquer jeito, os trabalhos são muito bons. É o que importa.
ps.: Tipografia de doido!
ps.2: Bom almoço, lugar legal. As vezes é bom mesmo você gastanto um pouco mais.

I refound a site that inspired me some years ago.
It's so beautiful, but a kind of beauty that is disturbing, obscured (as the name).
And I found out that the designers of this site have a blog, but my enthusiasm about it ran out when I clicked the link: they are russian and the blog as well.
And my Russian knowlegde, in numbers, is equivalent to 0% of my haltic English.
Anyway, the works are really good. That is what matters.
ps.: crazy typografy!
ps2.: good lunch, nice place. Sometimes is good even if you need to paid a little bit more.

Eu estou tentando juntar minhas coisas. Não tenho certeza ainda.
Desenvolver um portfólio digital é um trabalho difícil, mesmo quando você quer algo simples.

I'm trying to put my things together. I'm not sure yet.
Develop a digital portfolio is a hard work, even when you want something simple.

Couldn't help but...

That is that kind of expression that is weird in Portuguese.
Find that by chance while I was reading some blogs makes me feel that I needed talk (or write) about. I immediately remebered my teacher when he tried make me understand it.
Thank you, Mike.
I'm afraid that this blog is starting become nonsense too early.
Anyway, I couldn't help but write.

Where I find that:
