Notfrombrazil is Back

 5 Years ago I was getting ready for the visa interview in Paris. The USA embassy in Portugal doesn't have this department so I had to fly to Paris alone.

Paris... doesn't it sound romantic? Actually no! It was such a trauma ahahah! 

The visa process only ended last September (2019), but I traveled to the USA in February 2015 to finally be with my beloved "Jay" and start a new chapter in my life.

Apart from other projects, this webcomic has been with me in every good and bad moment and I had the chance to make you all part of the journey.  

I haven't done a single Notfrombrazil.com episode since 27th August 2018. But nostalgia knocked on my door. Feeling sick has made me stop seeing the glass half full and the funny side of life.

580 episodes online, what's not online is in two books...

There's a new episode already for the sake of nostalgia, and maybe who knows I continue to make more. (no pressure) New episodes every Friday.

As always my patrons will have exclusive access to sketches, early content and news before the internet.


Thank you so much for being part of my journey.
