DIF MAGAZINE #76: Urban Girls

Yoh everybody! So... Autumn is here to stay, eh? (well, for some of us... humpf)! It's raining non stop outside the window. Argh, I really don't want to go to work tomorrow :P

This is an illustration that i did for DIF magazine (a very cool Portuguese mag). The theme was Urban Girls and the article is about how woman in modern cities had to struggle to succeed in these competitive environments that were once ruled by men. My favorite phrase from the article is: "MOST OFFICIAL BITCHES RULE SUPREME".
This issue of DIF magazine was redesigned by a great Portuguese graphic designer called Ricardo Mealha. I think that he did an amazing job :)
The editorial team was awesome and published my self-portrait and biography.
Hope you are all well ;)

PS: Many thanks to Sophia Pan, for being my model in so many projects.

Olá companheiros blogueiros! Parece que o Outono veio para ficar. Não para de chover lá fora... Argh! não me está nadaaaa a apetecer ir trabalhar amanhã :P

Fiz esta ilustração para a revista DIF. O tema é Urban Girls, e o artigo debruça-se sobre a forma como as mulheres nos grandes centros urbanos tiveram de labutar para conseguirem ser bem sucedidas num meio que era governado por homens. A minha frase favorita do artigo é: "MOST OFFICIAL BITCHES RULE SUPREME".
Este número da DIF foi redesenhado pelo grande Ricardo Mealha, que por sinal fez uma belíssimo trabalho.
Espero que estejam todos bem ;)

PS: Mais uma vez, um muito obrigado à Sophia Pan, por ser a minha modelo em tantos projectos.
