Black Orpheus (Portuguese: Orfeu Negro) is a 1959 film made in Brazil by French director Marcel Camus and starring Marpessa Dawn and Breno Mello. It is based on the play Orfeu da Conceição by Vinicius de Moraes, which is an adaptation of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, set in the modern context of a favela in Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval. The film was an international co-production between production companies in Brazil, France and Italy.

This weeks tutorial is inspired by Rio Carnival, as it’s festival season! One of my subscribers kindly sent me a bunch of Colour Pop eyeshadows last year, and I’ve been wanting an excuse to use the marbled Mermaid eyeshadow. It’s neon Yellow marbled in with a bright Blue, which creates a beautiful Lime / Chartreuse hue when mixed together. So you get a 3-in-1 eyeshadow from one pan.
All the products used are listed in the description bar of the video.

“I remember as a youth, finding a photo spread on Brazil carnival in one of my mother’s magazines,” recalls Wayne Lawrence (@waynelawrence). The documentary photographer, who was born on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, was instantly fascinated. Now based in Brooklyn, New York, Wayne is back for his third trip to Brazil for an ongoing personal project that explores the diverse communities of the African diaspora. Brazil is home to the largest black population of any country outside of Africa. “For people living in the tropics, Carnival is engrained in the DNA of who we are as descendants of African slaves,” says Wayne, who has been photographing scenes at Carnival over the past few days. “I wanted to make the connection between our shared history.”
I promised to post at least one sketch a day while I’m in Rio. It’s gonna be a bit of a challenge with this carnival chaos coming up. But I will try. Since my watercolours decided to stay in Madrid with the rest of my luggage I had to try a new drawing pen. Couldn‘t shoot the picture any shaper, had too much of this brilliant brazilian coffee this morning!
“Oh man, look at that! You feel that? Yo the city is goin’ off! Come on let’s have some fun!”
// From now until March 8th, I’ll be doing more Rio centered threads! Because it’s Carnival in Brazil, the biggest party of the year.
Carnival is very important to Lúcio because it was a big influence on his music career and his family. Favelas heavily influence the Carnival in Rio as well and that means a lot to Lúcio too.
So, like this post to have me write some fun starters with Lúcio in Rio during Carnival! If you guys have any ideas for me go right ahead and tell me, we can plot something out. This could be a fun learning experience for all of us to know more about Brazil! So like this post to get this party started!!
