EGOÍSTA MAGAZINE #47 (Legends on the Wall)

Hello blogger buddies! Hope you are all doing great. I miss commenting your blogs and reading your lovely comments in mine, but by life has been more of a mess that the usual, so... I'm just trying to catch my breath :P

For the first time, something that I wrote was published - and in one of the few top quality Portuguese magazines on art and culture. Egoísta magazine published a full 8 page aticle completely written and illustrated by me. I have to thank Patrícia Reis - Egoísta's Editor in Chief for believing in my work enough to publish it.

LEGENDS ON THE WALL: This project consists in a series of artistic panels inspired by the mural paintings of the Renaissance, Baroque and Pre-Raphaelite periods.

work process: I photographed the models myself, then worked on the photos in Adobe Photoshop, doing both post-production work and digital painting + photo-illustration.

This project was published in EGOÍSTA MAGAZINE issue #47
EGOÍSTA is one of the best Portuguese print magazines on art and culture and it is owned by Estoril Sol Group.

Egoísta magazine's Editor in Chief: Patrícia Reis • Egoísta magazine's Art Director: Henrique Cayatte

Models: Joris Lechêne, Sophia Pan, Ryan Smyth and Marck Davies. Big thanks to my model friends for helping me to create the images that I see in my head, and turn them into something real.
You can see more images of this project here:

Um muito obrigado à Editora da Egoísta, Patrícia Reis, por ter acreditado suficientemente no meu trabalho a ponto de o publicar.
