I moved from Brazil in 2015, and even though that wasn't very long ago, Brooklyn became my adopted home. I like the look of the local business signs and love to see all the flowers wrapped in plastic on the bodegas' sidewalks. The one on this poster is inspired by a bodega that I pass by constantly in Bushwick, where I live. Bushwick also has tons of well-dressed people, which is why I decided to depict someone walking by. (She turned out very similar to me, though.) Living in another country can be tough sometimes, but at this moment when I think of home I remember all the good times I am having there.
