This is a 36 pages’ graphic novel, about the Portuguese rock band “Trabalhadores do Comércio” and published by “A Bela e o Monstro”. The hard cover was part of a collection dedicated to the Portuguese pop/rock artists, that besides including the comic book, it came along with a music CD. The book was written by me, and drawn and painted by André Caetano and Pedro Pires.
With this work, I was nominated as Best Writer in “Prémios Nacionais de Banda Desenhada”, the awards organized by “Amadora BD” comic book convention.
Sonho sem Fim
This was another graphic novel that I wrote and drawn by Rui Ricardo. The 44 pages’ hard cover talks about the life and career of the Portuguese pilot Pedro Coucero, who was celebrating his 40th anniversary at the time.
This was a book idealized by Couceiro, to commemorate his 25th year of career. It was not an easy job to do. He had very specific ideas of what he wanted for his book, and I was always highly conditioned by his wishes. Though I was limited in creative freedom, I learned over time how to adapt to what Pedro envisioned for his book.
Unfortunately, the paper used for this edition didn’t capture the vibrant colors of his work. The book is a hardcover edition and is available for purchase throughout the country.
In 2004, I was invited by the Portuguese author Luís Louro to write a short tale for his new book.
Fadas Láureas is an erotic-humorous book, in an elfic universe. For each illustration, Louro invited a writer for a small text inspired by it. Other than me, more 27 authors turned to words what the illustration evoked in them. Bruno Nogueira, João Baião, Luís Represas, Margarida Rebelo Pinto, Nuno Markl, Rosa Lobato Faria and Rui Veloso, all respectable figures in Portugal, were some of the guest writers
The book was published by Prime Books.
