a bad scanned lamp (left) and its possible effect with the photoshop levels (the "bulb" is a collage which will be seen a couple of steps forwards). it is a quick drawing of a book about the "old sao paulo city", which was a pretty city, destroyed by a too fast and chaotic growing market... thanks to oma's friends, who have these books you can have an idea what the city looked like around the XIXth-XXth century turn. (wow, what a long text for a wiped out pencil sketch!)

a symbol of the city: the iron works of a viaduct called "santa ifigenia" and its colouring with the help of a photo digital programm

i searched for a nice, professional good-looking lettering on the internet to have an idea of how i could make the title look a little bit nicer.....on the "work-in-progress" background

once ive got the pieces, i just re-arranged them and finished the coloring of the sloth. i had really little time and think i should definitely work out better
the "paulistana" lettering AND the sloth. i had a hell of a fun, let's see if the project will be carried on by the "responsible"people. and i'm the one who shouldn't get lost in burocracies nor metaphysical problems and just do my f**<3 job, i guess...

Thanks for your support (never fails)! It's funny how "destiny's" role play it with us. Let's see what happens... and will keep posting as much as I can. The 'studio log' is such a brilliant idea!
