I grew up in a fable-like town known as City of Everlasting Peace, or more famously known as Taiping. It is a beautiful sleepy old town with more strange events than anyone cares to believe.

It is from here that I learned to love all things creepy, curious and campy.

With my wild imagination spiriting me away most of the time from the mundane I get to come back and retell the stories in writing or in art as long as it allows me to leave.

I’m not a big fan of following and followers. It’s not the idea behind it but more of the dubious choice of word. I’d rather be connected with people who enjoy browsing my site just as I enjoy browsing theirs. To me, when we are connected it is like us having a nice cup of tea, or whatever you desire, at the sidewalk café overlooking the lake. Or something close to that kind of pleasantness.

I’m not much of a small talker but when I hit the right note with like-minded people there’s no shutting me up, especially if we talk about adventurous things. Like the wonders and mysteries of our curiosities. Like the silliness of our ridiculous existence. Like a journey we are embarking on. Like the thrill of a success. What I mean in success is not necessarily the gain and glory kind but the kind that brings us joy. Immense joy that we can’t help but smile so wide we could open up a dimensional door by just doing that.

So, if you’re here, I’m glad we could connect.

  1. “This is a copy paste message”

    Hi there my name is Almeida Garcez, and I´m a freelance illustrator and writer.
    I love to listen, and interpretate the power of words.
    My work is mainly focus on social issues, philosophy, and existentialism.
    Right now I´m into a very personal project, that I think it´s the answer for all forms of life – collaboration.
    I illustrate people´s phrases, songs and wandering thoughts, I´ve called it Abandoned Illustrations.
    The reason that I´m “reaching” you, it´s because you followed me a couple of weeks ago.
    I hope it wasn´t a mechanical reaction that bursted out of you.
    I hope the first reaction I caused in you, was good, and my work truly made you reflect.
    We both know it´s easy to follow someone, since we already do that in our role in society,
    and in all sorts of ideologies.
    Please unfollow me if you only intended to sell your marketing.
    If you didn´t returned to my blog after you followed me, please go to:
    There you can take a look at the topography of my reflections, and overall geography of my brain.
    If you come to a conclusion that after all you don´t like my interpretations and analogies, please unfollow my blog.

    Kindest Regards
    Almeida Garcez

  2. Hello! I followed Anna Tan over here from #teamDamyanti! I love your site and in general have had mad love for all things Chinese for years! I love the picture of your father planting the avocado “baby” and indeed, all things young and tender should be treated as such! I hope your youngling grows big and strong and provides you with many healthy and delicious fruits (they’re my favorite!) Enjoying my visit here, from Tampa, United States. I am Mary aka Viola Fury

    I will visit again; your site is enchanting!

    1. Hey, thanks for dropping by and liking what you see. Viola Fury sounds like an awesome character name I would use in a scifi or fantasy novel. Would be cool to hear you play the viola.

  3. Hi there. These are great, but my fave is ‘Shelter from darkness 2’ (for the curves and the way both of the characters having each other). 🙂
