Voltando ao tema das letras ilustradas, escolhi esta letra de U2 porque, sempre que o assunto dos referendos à Constituição Europeia tem aparecido na TV, nestes últimos dias, esta música aparece-me na cabeça como banda sonora...

Getting back to the illustrated lyrics, I picked this U2 lyric because everytime the subject of the European Constituition referendums has come up on TV, these last few days, this tune has resounded in my head like a soundtrack...



Don't worry baby, it's gonna be alright
Uncertainty can be a guiding light
I hear voices, ridiculous voices
Out in the slipstream
Let's go, let's go overground
Take your head out of the mud baby

She's gonna dream up
The world she wants to live in
She's gonna dream out loud
She's gonna dream out loud
Dream out loud

Pausa Blóguica | Bloggic Pause

As duas últimas semanas foram nulas em termos de ilustrações a mostrar aqui, mas produtivas noutras vertentes artísticas. Ando a brincar com a ideia de finalmente colocar alguma Banda Desenhada neste Blog. Por isso, vão haver alguns desenvolvimentos nesta semana que começa.
Entretanto, devo voltar a participar na IF, para a qual não tive inspiração nestas duas últimas vezes.

These last two weeks were scarce in terms of illustrations to post in here, but productive in order fields. I'm playing around with the idea of finally putting up some Sequential stuff in this Blog. So, there will be some developments in this coming week.
Meanwhile, I should get back into IF, for which I wasn't feeling very inspired these last two times.

Mais Hellboy | More Hellboy

Exercício de fim-de-semana... Hellboy encontra uma esquecida arma Nazi. Esta imagem poderá têr ligações com outra imagem de Hellboy que já coloquei neste Blog. As bases para a história curta que disse que faria algum dia começam a alinhar-se...

Week end exercise... Hellboy finds a forgotten Nazi weapon. This image may be connected with another Hellboy image I posted earlier on this Blog. The founding elements for the short story I said I'd do someday are starting to set themselves up...

Malícia | Mischief

A ilustração para a IF desta semana... finalmente...

This week's illustration for IF... finally...


Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

Consegui arranjar tempo para fazer a ilustração para uma nova letra. Tanto a ilustração como a letra são dedicadas a uma pessoa especial que está de partida para uma nova aventura bem longe daqui. Esta é a minha maneira de lhe desejar toda a sorte possível.

Managed to get some time off to do the illustrated lyric of the week. The illustration as well as the lyric are dedicated to a special person who is setting off on a new adventure far away from here. This is my way of wishing her the best of luck.

Wild Horses


You're dangerous 'cause you're honest
You're dangerous, you don't know what you want
Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt
Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey

You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass left in a beach
Well, you tell me things I know you're not supposed to
Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Well you stole it 'cause I needed the cash
And you killed it 'cause I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me 'cause I asked you to
Baby, can we still be friends?

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens white rose
The doors you open
I just can't close

Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, your gypsy heart
Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, and don't look back
Come on now love, don't you look back!

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses?
Who's gonna take the place of me?

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?

Jogando Com O Mundo | Playing With The World

Uma experiência rápida com o estilo que tenho utilizado mais nos últimos tempos...
Talvez a retoque daqui a algum tempo...

A quick experiment with the style I've used most lately...
I'll probably retouch it in the future...

Anniversary of An Uninteresting Event

Anniversary copy


No more gold lights for the queen earth to keep you warm in your kingdoms
High on the waves you make for us
But not since you left have the waves come
The bar is dead and the rocket's rain is keeping you wet in your deathbed
so high on the waves you made for us
And not since you left have the waves come... have the waves come...
