celebrates traveling before Covid changed the world. A trip to New York that focuses on locations and events. The perfect book for those who want to see NY for the first time or remember their visit.
Celebrating my brother's birthday. Two years ago we were in New York.
This book is for you.
Sunday was a very happy
day. I love having my table with all the books and the banners behind me. All my hardwork visible so I can stop saying I'm not doing enough.
Everyone had fun questions, and it was great to explain notfrombrazil name to people.
Gave mini-comics and stickers away.
Sold out Polly volume I. Was a bit nervous after that, but parents kept buying the entire series excited to get home and order Polly volume I from amazon. That was awesome.
Another great moment was seeing people laugh out loud when they opened notfrombrazil on a random page.
It's still not easy to go outside and my next event may be just next year, but it was a great Sunday indeed.
Thank you so much to Chicago Market for hosting this event and having us. And Greg from @exploreuptownchi for the amazing Art Week event.
This week will be amazing. If I get the chance to showcase my art at the Chicago Market (Wilson and Brodway) come visit me August 8, 2021

I had so many wonderful reviews from different ages. Although the first volume is light and simple, the story begins to be more complex.
Here are my newest reviews. This fan couldn't stop reading. It made me so happy.
One of the Monday weekly mini paintings. I'm loving these acrylic exercises. The paint is so thick and dries almost instantly. I paint one each Sunday and post Monday on my Patreon. One per Monday, one year, 52 paintings.

Do I prefer to use gouache from the dry pans or directly from the tube?
They have different properties and will act differently as well.
I made color swatches from the same colors (from the tube and from the dry pan).
The dry pan acts more like watercolor.
