Jose Carioca by ElectricDawgy Jose Carioca by ElectricDawgy
I decided not to add a background,just because I didn't feel like it. :) It's been a long while since I submitted anything new. And I'm anxiously awaiting "The Three Caballeros" in the mail. So,I've had Jose Carioca on the brain. If any of you know who he is,he's one of Donald Duck's best pals and is huge in Brazil still. Where he's named "Ze Carioca". Eh,I'm not pleased with some aspects of the pic,but I'll let y'all scope it first.

MORE DISNEY ARTS! Must.....PrOdUcE....NooO....motivation or drive.....gah!

*sighs* Hope y'all like. :p Eh,I'm so tired at the moment.

Hi Eric, I am a huge fan of the little green fellow, Zé Carioca. I am a former Carioca, actually, I grew up in Rio (Copacabana) as a kid and am very interested in WW2 history, especially the Brazilian Expeditionary Force. Have a 1945 Dodge WC51, marked as an ambulance of the BEF, nicknamed "Zé Carioca". I'd really appreciate if you could contact off forum. I want to ask you about a bespoke portrait of Zé. Am planning a second Jose Carioca tattoo in April. Already have one on my upper left arm.

Here's a new rendering of Zé, as a Brazilian soldier, on leave in Rio. :-)

A tattoo eh? Coolness! Yeah I have one myself. :D On my right arm. It's always good to see fans of Mr. Carioca.

Could you make a Jose Carioca for me, to make into a tattoo? I'd like to have José dressed as a Brazilian Expeditionary Force soldier, around late 1944, early 1945.

I love shooting pictures and my camera is my main artistic tool. I do, however, suck, big time, when it comes to drawing pictures....

I'll be going back to Orlando for Easter (March 31-April 13). I got my first Jose C. tattoo there in February this year. The tattoo artist has been working in Orlando for years, and does Disney figures by the dozen. He had not, however, come across the loveable parrot before and spent quite some time on making it perfect.

You can reach me at goran_noren@yahoo.com

Live long - and prosper...

Thank you. :) I loved Brazil. I've been to Rio but I'd love to see more one day. Ha ha, I heard another Brazilian tell me that. What would you say a good example would be?

im glad u like Rio ^^ gotta say tho, that Brazil got a lot more u need to see... Rio is a beautiful place but as you travel through the country you'll see how diferent other places can be :)

Ze Carioca is a rly funny character, at least in our comic books (I dont believe they can be found anywhere else other than here..) but Brazilians are hard workers, and we dont waste all our days drinking "cachaça" and listenning to Bossa Nova.

we can be so kind. and smart. all of people I met during my exchange year in Texas dont even take me as a real person. it's weird how people around the world can judge us just because we are located in South America.

I love Walt Disney, but Ze Carioca wasnt a fair character... he is like Carmen Miranda u know? pretty, and Im honored to have the mas a symbol... but they are not real.

gosh that was a long reply lol I hope that's ok... :)
