Das Tripas Coração

paulo

das_tripas.jpg
The title of this illustration is in portuguese because it is an expression that loses all the sense if I translate, but literally means “the casings heart.”
. . .
I always tried to create some abstract illustration … but I never came to a satisfactory result. In these last days I started to read a book about Gustav Klimt works. This illustration is a reference of his paintings.
I hope that here for a while I start to release my works without a tablet and do more things with acrylic and oil… I hope that until the end of this year I already have some paintings =)

FACES

These are some “faces” that I drawn with my friend Marcelo Delamanha.
To make these, each one drawing a part of the face (for example: 1 eye, half of the nose, etc).

He received the glory. Now his soul is purified and flowers are borning of your body.

Female Chameleon

Hello,my name is Paulo Quirino, I’m from Brazil, and I’m the invisibleman guest this month.
This is the last illustration in a series of tree that I started a time ago (the other two illustrations are on my flickr).
Not only on this illustration but in all my works I always start without knowing what the drawing will be. I make some forms, put some colors; I make something completely abstract….After that I try to make something “real”.
In this drawing I did the eyes, a lot of strips, background, everything…After that I just choose the animal that could turn =)

Pigs and Parties

More snippets from my solo exhibition “Never Been”; a Summer scene with a Pig farmer crossing a river (I don’t know why, but pigs are my favorite thing to draw at the moment, I think it’s because they’re so fat and stodgy with no real structure that you can draw them however you like. As long as it has a snout, it will look like a pig.) and a Summer night’s party scene.

The show got some excellent press in this week’s MEN’s City Life Magazine Supplement, which you can read here.

Mini Comic on sale at “Never Been”

Less than four days before the opening of my show in Manchester and I’m still doing artwork- surely not a good sign. Luckily I’ve saved the fun stuff ’till last- another wee baby A6 full colour mini comic. This page here might look a bit different to the other work I’ve posted here on Invisibleman, but there’s a good reason for it; because the book is going to be printed so small, I have to make sure the images inside will be as clear and legible as possible. The story (again set somewhere in pre-WWII Yugoslavia) is about a little boy trying to convince his Dad to let him keep a Gosling he found in the wheat fields. The mini-comic is going to be dispensed from a home-made vending machine for £2, which providing I’m still alive, I’ll post some pics of next week.

Images from Never Been

Here’s some sample crops taken from the giant image that’s going to form the main part of my show here in sunny Manchester.

I’m really hoping people are going to look at it and make up their own little stories about what the hell these characters are up to and how they relate to each other. Also, a lovely chap from the BBC interviewed me about the upcoming show last week, you can read it here..

Never Been

stuart

Hi, my name is Stuart Kolakovic and I’m a fledgling illustrator from the Midlands (home to Black Sabbath and industrial pollution) in the U.K. I’ve kindly been invited as a guest artist here on invisibleman for the next month, so I’m pretty stoked. This here is a flyer for my first solo show here in Manchester (home to The Smiths and industrial pollution) that opens this December. It’s getting pretty hectic so close to the opening, and I’m still doing work for it! The main “piece” for the exhibition is going to be one long drawing that wraps around the back wall of the gallery space- not a comic strip as such, more of a panoramic illustration of a year in the life of a fictional eastern european village set somewhere in the early 20th century. This is basically me being really self indulgent after doing one too many bland illustration jobs.
