Everything is fine


Dear SNOTM readers and fans,

I am very much alive... I've just not been drawing many comics because Iris and I have been traveling a lot lately.

We spent a few months in Spain visiting my family and walking the Camino de Santiago (by the way, it was awesome).

As of now, our current residence is in Sao Paulo, Brazil... and I think we'll be staying here for a few years.

I don't know if new comics will come anytime soon. I'm actually feeling a lot more like painting lately

These comics will stay here for as long as blogger exists.

Abrazos!

Alex

Good luck in your life. It sounds like you're happy!

Coocoo said...

Awesome! Good luck in Sao Paulo and I hope comic inspiration finds you sooner than you expect!

geooorge said...

Do post a painting or two if they are not too personal.

icollectmaps said...

The Camino! A friend introduced me to it several months ago, and now I want to do it. Kudos for taking the time to do what your heart wants.

Jaqueline said...

We wouldn't mind seeing the paintings either, maybe you can share some with us. ^_^
Have a wonderful stay in Brazil!

Hola peregrino! You did the Camino! It was one of the most amazing experience in my life, and I learnt a lot of stuff nobody told me before ;) glad to know you're having fun, I hope to read new comics soon. :)

Oscar said...

Bien por tí Alex, gracias por todo!

Rebecca 'B.B.' Celso said...

Funny of you to say that, because LAST NIGHT I browsed through (almost) all the 'stuff no one told' you/me/us, and wondered how some of these advices (as portrayed by you) changed my view in life... and how I wish there were more ;)

I enjoy your work very much, and would love to get to meet you one day.

By the way, I'm also living in SP now!

Nico Pópez said...

Oh that's so nice to hear about you and find out that you're living here (I live in são paulo)!

I really hope you two enjoy staying here!

The city is both chaotic and fantastic, impossible not to love and hate at same time, I imagine you guys already discovered that!

Well, I wish you a good time here! Welcome to the concrete jungle! kk

Kisses

Constanza Rigazio said...

Hey I hope you're liking São Paulo, I lived there for the last five months (now I'm back home in Argentina). You gotta visit the MASP, Liberdade neighbourhood and Pico do Jaraguá. SP is beautiful. Love your comics, I hope you continue drawing them.
love,
Constanza.

I just saw a link to a comic on a Tumblr and fell out laughing! You're such an amazing talent! Do you sell posters or cards? (Sort of like Matthew Inman does with The Oatmeal? http://shop.theoatmeal.com/collections/posters) I'd love to buy a poster for my home! Thanks!

Osti, Alex! Se't veu en forma! Felicitats! L'altra dia me'n recordava dels teus dibuixos-consells i em preguntava què s'havia fet de tu! I veig que estàs (esteu) molt bé! Que vagi bé i endavant!
(Un fan de la teva feina de fa molt temps)

Guiga said...

Hey Alex! Welcome to Brazil. Let´s meet up for a beer one of these days, so you can chat a little with your brazilian fans.
I work with comics in Campinas, 100km from São Paulo. Why did you come to São Paulo?
If you´re interested, just send me a message on facebook: guilherme carbonari.
Cheers!

Paloma Anjos said...

But and the third part of "Goldfish"? I'm still waiting.. :/

loki said...

Hi Alex,

My wife and I really liked your comics. If you and Iris are ever in Brasília, give us a ring at tiagobcordeiro@gmail.com. We can hit the waterfalls in chapada dos veadeiros =)

Best,
Tiago

Ricardo Aguiar said...

Hi! Welcome to Brasil! I hope you're enjoying São Paulo! If you want to know Ceará (very hot with some good beaches) please fell invited!
Até mais!

Davi Silva said...

His drawings amaze me, and his sentences are so inspiring ... Please, publish (create) a picture book! I would buy at the time, not even knowing how to speak English. ù.ù

  (And I'm sorry for my bad english, I'm Brazilian. Kkkk I hope you understand.)

Obs: Google Translate huehuehue

Natalia said...

I just already know about your work on Obviousmag and i find it so touching. Congratulations and i hope sooner you came here to show more about your work (or maybe a book with all these works). Painting is a cool thing. Bons frutos no seu caminho. How was life in SP? Eu gosto de SP, é diversa e diversificada. Boa sorte!

Chii ^^- said...

I would love to see your point of view of brazil's life.

parastream said...

Legal que você esteja vivendo em São Paulo!

Mas é chato que você não esteja mais fazendo quadrinhos, justamente quando você chegou à Terra Onde a Zueira Nunca Termina!

(Eu duvido que você consiga se manter afastado dos quadrinhos vivendo nesse país de loucos que é o Brasil...)

De qualquer forma, seja bem vindo!

Isa D said...

Hi Alex,

I just discovered your work 5 minutes ago. I'm also recovering from a burnout and was really touched by your work. The reason I'm commenting actually is because I will start the Camino the Santiago next Monday! I just love it when the universe throws me a sign to remind me I'm absolutely doing the right thing. I'm so happy you enjoyed it!

Thanks, Isabelle
