Acerte Sempre (Make It Right Always) is the name of the informative bulletin with tips about the Portuguese language that circulated within the Record TV broadcasting station and for which my first wife was responsible.
She asked me to make an illustration that could decorate the first edition of the bulletin, suggesting a little teacher that could resemble her person in some aspects.
I attended to her request and came to like the drawing.
From there on, I dedicated myself to make, freely and by own will, the illustrations for the subsequent editions in my free hours.
The feedbacks I used to get were a massage in my ego.
Unfortunately, anxiety problems I had by the end of the same year made me opt for discontinuing the work.
It took me too much time to draw and colour the illustrations and the deadlines were strict.
I lament for not continuing, but my own pression in having the job done made the work too wearisome and I gave up, at last.
The Acerte Sempre illustrations were made between May through November 2003 and motivated the development of Pixel Pocketknife a lot.
The drawings were made with mechanical pencil and roller ball pen.
In Pixel Pocketknife page there is information about the unusual colouring procedure I employed.
