In 2017 and 2018 I was one of the co-organizers of the event FolcloreBR: Somando Visões, a series of online talks about brazilian folklore and culture, headed by my friend Anderson Awvas which has the active community FolcloreBR.
I also talked in many of the videos, alongside my other good friends Colecionador de Sacis and Ian Fraser, author of the Araruama saga.
It consisted mainly of YouTube hangouts about different subjects within the theme, with many different people that work with folklore and culture from different areas such as games, filmmaking, writing, historians, etc.
You can see the site of Somando Visões here.
It is available only in portuguese.
You can access the YouTube channel with all videos here or by clicking the image below.
For the 2017 edition, you can click here for the videos. For the 2018 edition, here.
I recently did an interview (in Portuguese) for the website Colecionador de Sacis about my research and work methods regarding one of my passions: brazilian folklore and culture.
You can watch it below (portuguese only).

Recently I took a little trip to Manaus and Curaçao.
I had a wonderful time with my girlfriend exploring Willemstad, Klein Curaçao and absorbing the different languages and cultures in such a rich place.
I have also explored a bit more of Manaus.
Here are some pictures of both places, Curaçao and Manaus, taken by me and my girlfriend.

Some new updates!
New images from two projects I am doing: a brazilian werewolf and Walter Corbitt, from a previous concept of mine – you can see my previous post about him here.
I also started working in the Skywind project! It is a complete overhaul of the Skyrim game, making The Elder Scrolls III – Morrowind entirely in that game’s engine, with a lot of dedicated professionals working on it.
My first contribution is the redesign for the Indoril Shield, a very iconic armor piece.
You can see my progress here.
