“..instead of taking notes, you are drawing little figures doing aus and meia lua de compassos.”
-from “You Know You’re Capoeira-Crazy When…”




p.s. Please know I am fully aware of my artistic capabilities, or lack thereof.  There’s a reason I usually stick to writing! 😛

I’ve been doing the same thing since 8th grade. Definitely a good way to pass the time during class, haha.

My Applied Mechanics notes were all full of Aú Malandros…

Ezra Jennings suggests a Victorian Lit. class of some sort. If you wanted to combine Victorian fantasy with doodles I would recommend .

Opium, Gothic undercurrent, the proto-feminist “New woman” movement, the Yellow peril, fear of aerial bombardment, it’s all there.

Haha! Nice observation/deduction skills, Robin =P It was exactly a Victorian lit class…Victorian novels, to be exact. Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve only seen the movie, but I’m sure the book is much, much better.

Great stuff Jo! I haven’t yet drawn much as I don’t attend classes but I do write poetry. Sometimes I’ll write poetry about Capoeira and think of them as little “american ladainhas” if you will. I’m going to start learning Portuguese this year so I can translate them and actually use them in the roda! If I do take a class at a local school for Portuguese then you can bet your stars I’ll be doodling all the while!

LOL really, Pipoca?? XD Thanks…in that case you’d be super-impressed with my friend’s stuff, who is an actual artist (in addition to just being a bored student, like me) 😛

Wow, that’s awesome! Have you done songwriting or poetry outside of capoeira before? Looking forward to your first recording 😉
