It’s No longer I That Liveth, new Risograph book by Francisco Sousa Lobo

It’s no longer I that liveth is a book about being thirteen years old in 1986. It portrays the life of Francisco Ferreira. It is set between Lisbon and Évora. Francisco Ferreira is at the worst of ages. He is at an age when the God of childhood is already dead, and no new God has come to replace him. An age when you no longer play and you don’t have true friends yet. A nihilistic age. An age without anything. Nevertheless, Ferreira uncovers something, attaches himself to something.

The Creators Project on Ron Regé, Jr.

For Regé, drawing is ‘kind of like eating or sleeping,’ resembling a basic biological function more than a conscious act. That’s why he doesn’t like to stress over the origins of his creativity, because it’s actually a part of who he is.
