Self Portrait Without Looking
I drew myself without looking at the paper (using a photograph for visual reference) and then replicated it with embroidery for my visual arts class. Drawing without looking is my new favourite way to draw, it feels so comfortable and right. This makes me happy because you cannot control or predict the outcome and this has released me from my drawing rut.
Now that I am on uni holidays I will be making more pictures and paintings.

GUYS, PLEASE, SHARE THIS!
As you may know, we’re having some difficult times here in Brazil. What started as a protest against the abusive prices of the public transportation system became a fight for rights.
We’re fighting against our corrupt government, our lack of rights, fighting against something that seems like some sort of twisted dictatorship.
And the media is not helping. By distorting images, the biggest channel here is making the protestors look like the evil guys. But these pictures show that they’re nothing like that. Peaceful people being shot, beaten, arrested, dragged out of hospitals.
THE WORLD NEEDS TO SEE THIS! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW!
We’re done being put down, we’re done being abused! WE ARE THE FUTURE, WE ARE REVOLUTION!
this happened in the city i live and it’s so fucking frustrating. i have no words for this, specially because a lot of people HERE IN BRAZIL don’t know what is actually happening due to the media!
i had no idea this was happening :o
