My friend Jorge Coelho got me a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and its a very cool thing!
So this was what a got in my first drawings on my sketchbook. The left side is from imagination, the right side is at a marroquine bar, called Al-Sahara, and it's what it was on the table.

Take care :)

Cadavre Exquis number 35

cadaverex35andrecaetano, originally uploaded by boredomsketch.

Hello everyone!

This is my participation on Daniel Maia's Project called Cadavre Exquis.
The way it works the story is being told a page at a time, by a different author, which can choose how he's going to continue the story.

So this is my take on it, made with brush and ink, on paper, and the grey tones were done digitally, as well as the typography.

read the story here,
And my part here,
Hope you enjoy it!

IF - Unfold

IF - Unfold, originally uploaded by boredomsketch.

I've unfolded this little zombie from my darkside :D , heheh, and when the IF topic got out, i already had the drawing started.
So i decided to go with it and try to do something a little different and experiment!
I started by drawing with a quill pen and ink, very loose and spontaneous. After that i've colored it using watercolors, colored pencils, and scanned it.
The size of the paper it's an a6 sketchbook i'm using now.
Which by itself it's a different journey.
Digitally i've added the texture which already had the ornaments.
The texture can be download from here,

A late night experience, an afternoon photograph
And great fun!
As it shows on the photo, i've used Van gogh watercolors, bic cristal pen, and watercolor soluble pencils from Caran d'ache, and a sable brush.
I've drawn first with the bic pen, then i've colored it with the watercolors, and finally i've redrawn some line with the pencils.

Embora não o tivesse publicitado a exposição perto da data da inauguração, convido-vos agora a visitá-la, pois a exposição vai-se manter até ao final do mês.
É na Casa dos Açores do Norte, que fica na:
Rua do Bonfim, 163

A exposição tem o seguinte horário,
Entre as 9h30 e as 12h30 - 14h30 e 17h30.

Não abre ao fim de semana, mas se estiverem interessados, eu comunico com a Casa dos Açores para alguém ir abrir as instalações e puderem visitar a exposição.
Pode ser que tenha oportunidade de me deslocar ao Porto.


Em conjunto com a Casa dos Açores e a Associação dos Amigos dos Animais de Santo Tirso, estou a desenhar os animais domésticos de quem quiser, cobrando 20 euros pelo desenho, parte do valor indo para a associação, para a ajudar.
A colaboração com eles foi iniciada no dia, durante a inauguração.
Cujo exemplos, já podem ver no meu set do flickr :

People's Pets

Se estiverem interessados em que faça um desenho do vosso animal de estimação, podem contactar pelo email,

Tenho também um pdf, sobre a Exposição, que podem consultar aqui, PDF
Contém um texto de Cristóvão de Aguiar, sobre o livro e o meu trabalho no seu livro, bem como uma biografia minha.
Se o link não funcionar avisem-me.

Em breve coloco algumas fotos da inauguração da Expo.

I really liked the vague look of this character. What could he be thinking? What stories could he tell? Maybe i'll find out in the next sketch :)
Doodling in my sketchbook :)
