I love surprises. They fuel my creativity and challenge my work. I love when things I could have never imagine happening do happen. Daytripper keeps surprising us.
The University of Tennessee has chosen Daytripper for the 2014 Life of Mind program, a program to help first year students transition successfully into college. All freshman students – around 4500 – will get the book in August, then be asked to present a little essay about it and then participate on small group discussions about the book and its themes.
Daytripper is the first graphic novel ever to be selected for the Life of Mind program.
The official announcement has been done last monday, April 7th.
I love surprises.

Daytripper, an award-winning Brazilian graphic narrative that offers a powerful examination of life, love, and other timeless themes, will be UT’s 2014 Life of the Mind book. The Life of the Mind Program is a component of First-Year Studies 100, a required online course that helps first-year students transition successfully to college.

April: one month away from social medias to focus on work. I’ll be back in May.

Q
Fábio, o que você faz pra conservar seus pincéis? Você usa algum produto na hora de limpá-los?
A

Eu trabalho com um copo d’água ao lado da mesa, pra não deixar o nanquim acumular no pincel enquanto eu desenho. No final do dia, lavo com sabão líquido, esfregando gentilmente as cerdas pra retirar o nanquim que ainda está lá.

Tem gente que passa  creme de cabelo, também ajuda.

Nenhum projeto autoral em breve?

Além da tira, estou fazendo uma série de histórias curtas para a Vertigo, mas não sei quando elas serão publicadas no Brasil. Por enquanto, os projetos grandes são colaborativos (adaptações literárias ou trabalhando com outros roteiristas).

Estou também desenhando um novo arco de histórias da série “Casanova”, que é co-autoral (o Matt Fraction escreve, a gente cria todo o visual). Novamente, primeiro para o mercado americano.
