Work done during the Revista Baiacu Comics Residency period.

Curated by the renowned Brazilian cartoonists Laerte and Angeli, "Baiacu" gathered 15 artists and is the first printed result of a project that sprouted from Hilda Hilst Institute, a house where lived the writer Hilda Hilst (1930-2004) and now holds periodic artistic residencies.

 

This is one of the most memorable projects I’ve had the honour to be invited to so far.  As the youngest artist, I had the opportunity to learn a lot from other cartoonists, but also be heard. It was an experience that something that changed the way I perceive comics-making and drawing.

The residency lasted three very frantic weeks and a selection of the material produced during that time was published into a book, called Revista Baiacu.

 

Amongst the selected artists, there were Power Paola, Laura Lannes, Ilan Manouach, Fabio Zimbres, Pedro Franz, and many others.

Baiacu can be acquired in both physical and digital formats.
