The Lisbon Studio allowed me to publish my own first story, under their wing. Deslumbre (bedazzlement) is part of the #2 TLS Series – SILÊNCIO (Silence), which came out in November, 2017, with a cover by Jorge Coelho. In twelve pages, it recounts the meeting of two ex-lovers who come together sometime after their breakup to spend the night. Everything seems to be fine, but slowly we come to understand that, once the morning comes, the two will not be on the same page…
O Castigo (The Punishment) is part of an anthology made up of no less than eleven female comics artists and illustrators, each contribuiting with their take on the word PAIN (The title of the book NÓDOA NEGRA actually translates to “bruise”). Through this story, I wanted to understand the history of labor anesthesia – how it evolved and the kicks and turns it had to take to be finally and safely avaliable for mothers to use. In 10 pages, I think I was able to provide a decent taste of that. Dileydi Florez started the project and put the book together, which inludes an english translation in the final pages. Avaliable for purchase at my store.
CAIS is a social help organization – their objective is to assist people on getting out of unstable or dead-end situations. One of the ways they do this is by re-integrating them back into working status. This magazine is sold by their associates, turning into a revenue for them and, hopefully, helping their way back into a more stable life. Pedro Moura writes the scripts for these short two-page stories. For the English translation, click here.
