5. Artist Statement
I am a brazilian illustrator and graphic designer, and in Brazil we constantly use humor when dealing with frustration, which you can see in my illustrations. As Mary Poppins would say: “a spoonfull of sugar helps the medicine go down”. I am influenced by the meme culture, but also by nonsense British humor, such as Monty Python, and I am interested in creating art that makes us laugh at ourselves, and turns everyday life a little less heavy, and funnier.
6. Planned Project
I intend to use this funding to produce silkscreen T-shirts with my illustrations. I already make coffee mugs, but it’s a much cheaper and easier process, which I can do by myself in a FabLab. The T-shirts are more expensive and I have to hire someone to do them properly.
