Irasshaimase!

Let me introduce myself:

Kiyuri copy 

My name is Ingrid, also called Kiyuri. I current live in São Paulo, Brazil. I'm work as a illustrator and dancer. I made this blog to share with you my work in progress, history about my drawings and random daily stuffs. It's almost 8 years to be completed in November that I'm seriously involved with illustration. In the beginning, I drawing because it's fun, so fun as dancing. Two things that I doing since I as a little child. In 2000, one day I woke up and decided bother my mom to buy a book to teach me how to draw in a classical style properly. Simple that. I didn't like manga in this time, but it was my first serious draw, and after that I made more realistics things. My mother gave me a box full of drawing stuffs as a gift in December. I usually don't have pacience enought to draw and finishing up things faster. In 2001 I read my fist manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and completly fall in love! Begin to search about brazilian manga artists and spend my entire money with this things, driving my parents crazy. Because of severals critics of my father related to my drawings, I throw away the most part of my works in this year. 2002. I moved to a new Techinical College and started to study english and japanese in the same time. I don't have confidence and memory to create poses, so I pick things that was been drawing for others artists to pratice. Met gekiga style in this time. I became sick and slowed down my activities. 2003. I pass for the fist time in the Techinical Course of Graphic Design, but my mom lost the day of matriculation and I cannot make the course. I try to make a manga with a friend, but she does't take it too serious and I give up some time later. I guess this year I produce more that I have done in my entire life LOL. I met Ukiyo-e printings, Cowboy Bebop and others animes with a plot more mature and deep; Eugênio Colonesse, Julio Shimamoto and Massamune Shirow. Started to define guidelines to develop my style. Stars here the time of drawings for free. People who like things you do and because of this thinks that can't pay for drawings because it's easy for you do. In 2004 I stopped my studies on japanese and english because of money and time. Made again the exam for Techinical Course of Graphic Design, pass again and finally I can do the matriculation. Started to explore more materials than pencil, coulored pencils, and ink. My healthy get better when I find out how to stay with my hipoglicemic in control. I discovered PC and how Adobe can make the world a better place to live. I find the works of Hiroaki Samura and because of that I started study black and white illustrations. Finish High School and try to show my works for some guys in the area, but they didn't give much attention, and later, I help the pupil of then finish her conclusion project. Funny ne? I get involved with the Mailing List of Gothic Lolitas. 2005. A very closed person was working in Japan as a dekassegui died in a car accident. It's make sad and upset. I finished my course and find my first job in a fast graphic. Stayed here for 3 months and quited. After that, started a course at Gibiteca Henfil, specializated in sequential arts. It's my first audition and my works were accepted. I feel great in this moment. Now I was able no sketche more lightly and became to define my way to draw. In 2006 after the ending of course at Gibiteca Henfil we made a illustrators group, lauched at Virada Cultural our magazine made in the course. I took part in this project as a illustrator, editorial assitant and take care of magazine layout. But the better comment that I received was from an old men that worked in the 50's with horror comics, he's really proud of my narrative and drawing stlye. In this same year I quit the illustrator group, worked few time with assistant of my close friend, a Plastic Artist, with her litographyes. And after pressions of my parents to find a right job, I ended up working with phone attendant. I can't be able to adapt in this career and quit after 3 months. Start to study draw in a specializated school, because I didn't find significant development in my work. 2007. I was freaking out of my time to became a "great artist" was vanishing. I begin to go in EGL Meetings and know new people. Start a new job, in a Commecial Company and finally I get in at Khan el Khalili, a egiptian tea house and the best former school of oriental dancers. My friend Danilo show me possibilities of enrich my works with vectors. I come back to try painting my works with mouse. And I start making collabs with some Deviantart fellows. Oh,almost forgot, I lost my portfolio with my best works. Yes, I have an address in there. No, they don't give back. In 2008 I was fired of my job afer one year when I ended up stressed with commercial area and taking pills to sleep. Concluded a Course of Graphic Process at SENAC. Left the school where I studied illustration because I don't have enought money for pay it. My dance classes doubled for reasons of preparing for THE ultimate audiction. I take part on a contest to Zupi Mazagine for a 30% discont in a illustration course at IED. I won, but I don't have a job and help at home to pay the restant value of College. I'm acctually preparing myself to take comissions, find a decent job to pay my art and dance studies and find an academy to give dance class for beginners. Now it's 02:24 AM of September, 25th. I'm the last person of house still awake, lost in the middle of my messy room, full of drawings, boxes and random stuffs shattered in the floor. In don't wanna organize drawings of the past 8 years anymore! D:

let me tell you something girl...
I'm fucking proud of you sweet-heart, and I'm so happy I could share all of this moments with you, the bad ones, and of course the good ones!
I believe in you art, and in your dancing, and you know, that no matter what you chose, I'll always be there, supporting you, because you always did it for me!
for example my English, remember how I started it? with you!
my love for many things... it all came from you at some point, somehow... so dear... never give up right?
Keep Dancing!
and I LOVE YOU!
