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 São Paulo building, part of the 1st "Festival Queer" art scene in downtown São 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.
