Mariana Pita makes drawings, paintings, comics, music, and animation. She has been developing some incredible work in the last few years, followed by a small but enthusiastic group of people. Her comics may look cheerful and lighthearted at first sight but her characters and narratives are often quite deep and odd, sometimes even dark.
OUTSIDE WITH THE CUTIES is an attempt to present Mariana Pita's best work to a bigger audience. It collects comics produced from 2013 to 2017 originally published in various outlets as well as several unpublished works.
Co-published with O Panda Gordo and support of IPDJ.

The Clean Feed and Shhpuma labels continues to expand and evolve, allowing us to look beyond the music and deal with other the visual aspects provided inside this impressive 64 page book. Yes, there is a CD of music/sounds which is found inside this 64 page book of assorted drawings, collages and minimal texts by Nate Wooley. Sonic specialist Travassos appeared on a few recent CDs from Clean Feed stable: Pão and Big Bold Black Bone. The disc here features Travassos playing with both of these projects as well as other assorted musicians. Travassos plays tapes, amplified objects, analogue electronics and crackle box. (...) The often mesmerizing sound of Travassos’ electronics permeates this entire disc without him ever soloing but creating a variety of haunting scenes. The book also evokes similar mysterious images which work perfectly with the music on the disc. Another triumph for the fine folks at Shhpuma - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

As BDs são mudas mas canta-nos as aventuras destas personagens fantásticas entre ácidos e Sword & Sorcery, cogumelos mágicos e ZZ Top, MDMA e Conan, o Bárbaro. Comparando com muita freakalhada da produção contemporânea como o Matthew Thurber ou Joe Daly, que parecem sempre pálidas imitações de Gary Pather, venham antes para este livro.
Ele rocka prá caralhu!

O livro mais "todo público" da Chili Com Carne: "Bottoms Up" de Rodolfo Mariano - Vencedor dos 500 Paus 2020
On the 25th November 1970 japanese writer Yukio Mishima (三島由紀夫 ) commited his ritualistic suicide. 50 years after, at the same day and month, our RUBI collection released the book Mishima - Blade Manifesto by Portuguese artist Tiago Manuel.
It's a graphic reading of Confessions of a Mask (1949), book that Mishima started writting also on the same day and month. This "Manifesto" was made by Tiago Manuel for an exhibition for Ciclo Mishima - Um Esboço do Nada, program dedicated to the write by Belém Cultural Center (CCB) in 2008 and after twelve long years finally it was published in book form - only a small except was published in #20 of Kuš! (Latvia) in 2015.
The artist used scissors that shattered the original work, not to destroy it, but to honor it by making it bleed images. We hope this vision of Tiago Manuel will open an intellectual battle between "Comics" and conceptual drawing purists.
This edition includes also Visions of Mishima, a text written by curator António Mega Ferreira.
Four different drawing were printed in risograph at Desisto. One of these images will be a gift to you if you buy directly to Chili Com Carne, There is 25 copies of each, all signed and numbered by the artist.
His works reminds me of Roland Topor's works and has a touch of Polish film posters. - DJ Cat Goshie (by email)
