Please, don't ask me points.
If you want points, deserves to do for them. All my points were won by me, through my art, and I stick to use them to encourage other artists. If you want points, show me your work so I can buy it if have available points. This is more fair and encourages other artists.

The first idea was to be a project where I would make art to celebrities, based on an art that I saw a while ago for an actor and was so appreciated by this actor that he posted a picture autographed than he sent it back to the artist. After wondering a lot about, I realize that would be too much to dream with autographs of artists and bands that I know, so I asked myself: "what makes them important people to me?" And I understood they all have something in common. They DON'T give up on the dream, however difficult they were. But there's a big detail, the dream also includes other people, others who have not given up their dreams, and that is my point, and this is my project! For those who despite hearing dozens of phrases, dozens of comments discouraged, but still persistent, moving on! This is a project dedicated to you, whether new or artists with millions of pageviews!
I am your fan because, like me and many others, you didn't give up YOUR DREAM AND YOUR TALENT!
But there was a problem... how to find these people and how get to know more of them and how can I know their histories?! Anyone who has read Sophie's World, perhaps will understand better my proposal. In a class I was reflecting about identity, who we are to the world.
Have you ever stopped to think about how this answer is complex? Try to answer quickly and with few words "who are you?".
Your answer will surely be comprehensive and will not define you as a unique person as you are! Then I remembered something a long time forgotten. LETTERS! Exactly, letters! Previously people looked at her handwriting and that use to talk a lot about him, much more than words! And to know you, ALL OF YOU, I do absolutely nothing virtual. There will be downloads of images, not the answers, or letters. I'll write letters together with my art (explain below), signed, and return address. The only things that will be online, are chronicles and videos.
"CHRONICLES?" Yes, because every art has a story, have a reason to be and something that inspired me. Some are sad, some are happy ... but are always stories! These will be accompanied by pictures or online videos about that art for that person.
I will tell about everything, absolutely EVERYTHING: the difficulty, creativity block, inspiration, study, tutorial, rain, burned the computer, anything that happens in that art related to that person!
I hope it will be so much fun and that everyone can enjoy and can get into the rhythm of the proposal.
I want to know about you, to correspond , to be closer to those I 'm a fan and have my respect, and read a paper sent to me with your letter, or art, with your "trace", with autograph, is much more warm and closest, than something in the computer screen.
"And why you are doing chronic?" Because it is an exchange, I want to show a little of me, they will know, and in return, I want to meet you !
All responses that arrive will be cataloged along with the creation process (briefing and tutorials) and I'll create an artbook.
The letters answered will be scanned. Not only them, but all that is sent as autographs, pictures and etc...
This is an artbook to encourage caring for others, respect, and of course work! No matter what level of proficiency you have, this is your space, without judgment, and above all, a hall for those who never gave up on themselves!
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS, whatever it takes, one day you 'll be on top!

Just live in somewhere! Easy, right?! You will only need an address to receive art and letter. Just send me a NOTE or by private message on my facebook page , that would like to participate and submit your address. All of them are written in a notebook to have no risk, and there will be an order of priority according to the order of arrival ( More fair , I believe ) . It would be really good if you tell a little bit about yourself , like what you most like , type of art , or you whatever you find convenient, so I can learn more from you and the art will be exclusive to you!
You do not need to pay anything for the art , and all I ask is to answer the letter , ie , your only expense will be sending a letter to my country ( BRAZIL! )
" I have to? " Of course not , no one is required to answer , but it would be really appreciative and kind of you , after all I am spending my time creating something unique , taking my time working to give you a gift , and would be very gentle if you could write me saying what you think , or telling me something about it, may be just an autograph on a postcard , I'll take it too! Hahaha anything that make me know!
Primary, my intention was not to sell them, first I just wanted to have something that would catalog the development of the project and add as a portfolio , but some people asked me if I could sell and I thought it could be interesting. I have no intention of making money on this, so I decided to look for a publisher to accept my terms. I want to donate the earnings to an charity institution, but I want to help some in my country , which unfortunately is undergoing major changes and problems , especially in the area of education and personal development of young people. There is a very interesting project that is against suicide among children and teenagers. ( And here comes something about me: I've been part of these numbers. ) I want to donate the earnings of sales to some humanitarian aid project with reference to art , or to combat suicide among teenagers . It will be my way of doing something to try to change (even slightly) the world that I live , and perhaps my gesture may help someone else , maybe this person helped could become a great artist or something like that who'll change our world even more?! We never know the positive results of our attitudes if we do not try , don't you think?!
Well , in addition, there will be an artbook for sale online that I'll put here in Deviantart , this can be bigger and with relatives chronicles. (I'll need volunteers for translation and review , please !) As it will be cheaper for not having the cost of production and maintenance , I will donate in full, and I will have better access to sales , so I post weekly ( or monthly, depending on demand ) the total earnings. At the end of each month I'll send the amount to an institution ( and maybe can be more than one , each per month ! ) . To know how many is sold , just get in "earnings and profit by type" . Anyone can follow monthly the sales (noting that Deviantart charge a fee of any sale by points.)
It vary significantly according to my creativity and available tools, but all in the A4 format (Except CD covers and book's covers).
You can receive:
· Characters (Can be chibis)
Everyone will be with fixative, signed and dedicated.
· Matte paint
· Photo Draws
I'm also doing Books and CDs Covers as a gift. If you have a band or a book that needs a cover, send me the informations (a briefing about your band, website, etc. , or about your book, when you send me your information) and I will do my best. If you like and want to use as cover, is ALL YOURS! I'll send a contract releasing the rights of my art for the band or author, the name of art and dates. It is your choice what I deserve for my work. (if you want to give me a signed CD, or book with the cover, and dedication, I will be very happy *-*!). To use the art , you MUST keep my name for the art creation.
1. Send me a note with your address and tell me a little about yourself
2. I will look your deviantart, I'll see some information you like, style, etc.
3. I'll post the date that the letter was sent here on the journal.
4. Send me a message telling that you received, this would be very nice and helpful to organize myself. If you think it's good and want to post a picture next to the letter, with it, or with my art, place the hashtag #ohwhoareyou (facebook and Twitter) to get easier and to others have the opportunity to meet you too and see!
5. I'll wait your return. It must contain unconditionally something about you and if written, must be hand made. If you want, you can send a photo of something you like, some art or a postcard from your city. Gifts are welcome, also hand made by you, and not bought (Except postcard!). Your answer should be on the artbook. There's no need to be a great designer, writer, illustrator, etc, but necessarily answering my letter, I want your autograph \o/

A request: Please, if you can, introduce the project to other people involved , I 'll be very honored and happy, will be helping me and also helping you be more known
I believe that is better do not expose the artists who wouldn't like to participate, and I sent the invitation, so I preferred to put here only the list of people who liked and will participate. There is an order of priority , which can be changed according to events, meetings, jobs, but the priority is in order of acceptance.
