A drawing I made for little J.’s room. He was born a couple of months ago – he is pisces – so I draw him a very colorful ocean!

Video projection for the concert Desidério Lázaro – Festa do Jazz 2015

FESTA DO JAZZ 2015_Desiderio Lazaro (c)Kelly Maiolle_1541

The concert “Subtrative Colors”, by Desidério Lázaro was presented on March 29, at Festa do Jazz 2015 – São Luiz Theatre in Lisbon. We had the pleasure to perform also the video projection specially designed for the project. The video – which includes stop animation and edited video clips – works not only as a story tailer but also as a visual scenery that involves the musicians and the music that is being played.

We hope we could share an excerpt of a live video recording soon.

Rui Eduardo Paes published his (PT) review of the festival and this particular concert here: http://www.jazz.pt/report/2015/04/01/palmas-e-foguetes/

A little farm!

A commissioned drawing I made to hang in a room of a two year old. I know that A. loves animals and so I made him a farm which I hope he will continue to love.

I’m a big a fan of Helen Beatrix Potter’s work! As I kid I used to love to watch a cartoon show with her animated drawings. I appreciated everything: the drawings, the characters and the stories.

The opening credits of the show are available online for us to remember :)

J. Hevelius

Johannes Hevelius morreu no dia em que festejava os seus 76 anos, em 1687.

Conheci-o há pouco tempo, porque usamos algum do seu trabalho gráfico nas colagens digitais que fizemos para a capa do João.

A paixão pela astronomia levou este senhor a construir uma base de dados e de desenhos incrível.

Entre o mapa topográfico da lua…:

Ficheiro:Hevelius Map of the Moon 1647.jpg

in Selenographia, sive Lunae descriptio (1647)

… Hevelius desenvolveu também um lindo atlas, Firmamentum Sobiescianum (1690), impresso na sua própria casa, que contém 1564 estelas e muitas figuras mitológicas associadas às suas constelações.
Aqui ficam duas páginas deste seu livro e outras imagens (das quais nos apropriamos) podem ser vistas na cópia física da capa do próximo disco do João:
