José Maria Eça de Queirós, one of the most important figures of Portuguese Literature. Born in 1845 in Póvoa de Varzim. Died in Paris, in the year 1900. Pictorically revived for the “Breaking the Fourth Wall” Art Exhibit.
If you don’t know his literary output… try it! I consider it highly recommended reading.

As part of the “Breaking the 4th Wall” exhibit, here is a self-portrait (comics version) that will be presented alongside other watercolors and stuff for the next April 6th Exhibit in the Art Forum space.
Acryllic and india ink over white cloth. And a slightly thinner version of me.
