MUSE: ALEPH

This is "Aleph", or "Alix", or "Aloysius", depending on what my head was in 2014, when I completed his picture. This muse is based on forever blonde californian guy Sean Patrick, shot by Melvin "Mel" Roberts in the late 70's. From orange to black-and-white, from vintage polaroids to computer screens.

This faun-like, pre-pubescent looking guy illustration was printed and poster-bombed on a decadent SΓ£o Paulo building, part of the 1st "Festival Queer" art scene in downtown SΓ£o Paulo. had the original and glitched versions made into the walls with the help of some friends and other artists who resided there.

Following this event, I also put him the cover of my "BLACKBOOK", a DIY zine featuring some of my digital and sketchbook illustrations for PopPorn #4, also in 2014. "ALEPH" is now for sale as posters and fine art prints via Artflakes.
