So it's that time of the year again... that of shameless self-promotion.
My official web page is up and running.
Pretty much like a book, I presume a website is never really finished, you simply abandon it. I could keep tweaking it further ad infinitum but as I'm short on time as much I'm on wisdom, I'll publish it as it is.

There you'll find out about upcoming events ( I'm involved in two upcoming exhibitions, so if you're based in London show up to say hi) and purchase prints of my work as well as commissioning exclusive artwork.
For those who like my kind of stuff (hello, Hans and Franz) pop by and have a look. Leave your comment, criticism, hate or love, doesn't matter, I'd like to hear your opinions.

Moving to London in September next. Keep going with my huge project to get a  artistic life full time . I got a script test to draw from a great publisher , better don't talk too much now . Things walking straight to a fucking awesome clímax . Perhaps,in the next spring i gonna " march " from London to the north , to Hadrian's Wall and finish ( finally ) "The legends..." . I wanna meet some spirits of dead warriors,get the necessary inspiration to make an amazing "The End".... and take one or twenty pint with 'em .

I think that this will be the YEAR . The kind of year that our lives inevitably change ... to give a better explanation i need to do a short checklist .
- I finally  was published by Heavy Metal . Something really important to me 'coz basically it make part of my growth   as an  artist , so was extremelly symbolic ...
- I still working on in Hadrian's wall 's Graphic Novel , so let us see if we can work something out ... perhaps more Heavy Metal ...
- The Night Office( Escritório Noturno ) comics anthology is on sale , finally . Me and Hector( the writer ) was signing some copies at HQ Mix comic store , you can see the pictures here www.flickr.com/photos/durante/….
- I'm working on the RagToy's cover album ... really awesome !!!
So , that's mean that i live of my art ? Well , not exactly ... i have confess , i have a job as a worker by day  and at night i do what i really love and i say ... it's bite stressing have inspiration when you work in a job that you're the only that  has never  was in the jail ... but i needed keep going battling ,so i think that i'll have my prise now . I'm estimating that in 3 months I can work only with art and live very well ...
I very wish the same to all of you .

Tuatha Dé Dannan's painting coming soon....
This one is  a fan movie from  Sláine,that celtic character from 2000AD,the guy is a great artist and made a awesome trailer of what could be a really good film about the Celts .

see  br.youtube.com/watch?v=nRIPAsb…


P.s: is a little bizarre the celts speaking spanish , but it does not matter ,was nice anyway.
Well,I was taking a few stressful weeks.With art you usually shoot hundreds of targets to hit just one,and you must make that bullets in so many differents styles,in so many ways that you can have a collapse.
To create i need of a soursweet melancholy and i wasn't  got this spirit(melancholy not sadness,it's a bite diferent).
I re-organised my time  and everything is more enjoyable now.

Enough,i'll take a break and reload!!!!
Have some moments in our lives that works like a passage rite...i was a little bastard at the time,you know,in that kind of age which you  know  that you don't really know much about nothing,so my daddy and i saw a movie....was Conan,the barbarian.Forget Arnold ,and Conan,it  wasn't important , what really kick me in the head , what really did a little boy cry  was the music.
I didn't  know the reason at the time but I knew  that I had awakened to a  very ancient world and   defined what I would do later and what was my spirituality . What Basil Poleodouris made was the most powerful music that i ever heard,able to transport it to forgotten worlds . I done this journey when i was too young...i hope that  all of you have a similar experience.
Unfortunately for us Basil is now composing only in other world (those lucky!) But is only listening to his music to have the feeling that ancient cultures never die

Please listen to what I'm talking about

I know , usually when you heard about someone which say that works in independent scene you think faster that's a case of " unemployed slut artist who smiles when someone shaking a handful of dollars " in some cases is really it , even so , we have some tough guys around the world which have bravely made your  pretty well job without concessions . They  not work to the " Majors " just 'cause it don't have much interest in another sort of stuff beyond the Super-hero comics .

I , particularly , don't hate super-heros , i  read some stuff when it's well done , and confess that I have some  affection  by   Hulk magazine .
Some of these guys make your work in mainstream to finance their independents projects .That's  a fair way to survive and I am not of those who believe that they sold the soul to the devil and shit like that , i think it is worth the risk .
My " dear son " at moment is Hadrian's wall , and i have paid their costs with effort but with very  satisfaction for having creative liberty . I put another page of it in gallery and enough...for while .
