How can someone sit comfortably while at the same time a lot of things have been doing to destroy basic principles of our civilization?
INcartoons is about it. It means it is a place of free opinion, real democracy and liberty to denounce what the owners of our world are currently doing, as well a place to laugh with our own tragedy and the meaning of life nowadays.

I began making cartoons again since the beginning of 2010. Before that, I had experiences on newpapers with comics when I was younger, but professional life as an architect took me also to other interests, places and opportunities. However, drawing was since the beginning my first passion, and making cartoons was for sure my way of getting together passion and social commitment on a short narrative.

Here you can find also other related sections, such as Urban Sketches, Illustrations and Books.

I hope you enjoy it.

Comments and sharing are welcome.
Thank you.


Como pode alguém ficar confortavelmente sentado quando ao mesmo tempo um conjunto de coisas estão a ser feitas para destruir princípios básicos da nossa civilização?

INcartoons trata disso mesmo. É um espaço de livre opinião, verdadeira democracia e liberdade para denunciar o que os senhores do nosso mundo andam a fazer, bem como um espaço para nos rirmos com as nossas próprias tragédias e o sentido da vida nos dias de hoje.

Comecei de novo a trabalhar em cartoons no início de 2010. Antes disso, colaborei em jornais quando era bem mais novo, mas a minha vida profissional como arquitecto levou-me também para outros interesses, lugares e oportunidades. No entanto, desenhar foi desde sempre a minha paixão, e fazer cartoons foi sem dúvida a minha maneira de juntar paixão com compromisso social numa narrativa curta.

Aqui pode encontrar também outras páginas relacionadas, tais como Urban Sketches, Ilustrações e Livros.

Espero que apreciem.

  2. Hi,

    I am a journalist for the small news weekly Le Jeudi in Luxembourg. I’m having a look at the “new european migrations” due to the economic crisis — here in Luxembourg there are many Portugese citizens. I would like to know if you could give me authorisation to publish, with this report I’m finishing, your 2013 cartoon with the government announcing the end of the problems and the old man as remaining “force”. And if so what are your conditions, keeping in mind we are very very small 😉 Many thanks.
    David Broman
