This Magician was the cover of a book published in 1976. The author is my friend Zé Manel, a veteran artist. He has done an extensive and magnificent work as illustrater, cartoonist and comic strip artist.
In this Magician we see a group of kids painting, writing, doing crafts... creating and exploring life. The Magic of Life.
In the larger photo, I am on the left, Zé Manel is in the centre and on the right is Geraldes Lino.
Geraldes Lino is the creator and organizer of the Tertulia of Comic Art of Lisbon for 24 years now. It's a remarkable event that happens every first Tuesday of the month. It's only open to the fortunate people he invites.
A lot of magic happens everymonth in this meeting.
