I have co-founded in October 2010 a non-profit cultural organization in Caldas da Rainha, called “BIXO MAU
Aiming different areas of interest related to the  culture and leisure targeting the local community, the social web and the Portuguese scene, this associative project has gained a lot of expectations and pretty good acceptance by producing many sorts of events and successful artistic projects.

Seven main resident projects were created to host all proposals for events and activities: an Art Gallery, Club (disco), Lusco-Fusco (events between 17h00 and 23h00), “Fresh-Up” (for young-blood dj’s), P1F (online media streaming), Apendice (the printed pamphlet) and a couple other marketing/business projects meant to  raise new crowds and investors.

I was in charge of coordinating the communication gateways and the overall design/aesthetics.

(part2) Fitacola collages are handmade from scissor cuts, adhesive tape reassemblings and original paper stuff we’ve been acquiring through these years. Having reached a point of almost endless supplies, the process is quite simple, assemble by having fun.

This is a co-project by me and my Wife, Graça Quitério. We also keep our weblog containing inspiring links at fitacola.com stream.
Soon in  fita-cola.com all the collage and hand-made assemblings portfolio organized.

Small Drawings (3)

(Part 3) Small drawings is an online drawings store. Started firstly as a diary, a-drawing-a-day, and kept growing. Serving at the same time a daily feed, for public and visitors to enjoy a certain feel of “voyeurism”, in the means of a “live representation of a personal daily routine (Carlos’s day-by-day),

A personal broadcasting channel, where drawing play the part of “illustrating” a daily life. I’m not currently updating, but I plan to do it more often in the future, as my time allows.
