Júlio Dolbeth likes to draw random faces, friends faces, some made-up faces, sometimes a lumberjack, sometimes a snow white lots of times until she comes perfect. Once in a while invented plants, most of the times a log, sometimes a skull trying to be proportional. Most of the drawings are in his head, many of them in his sketchbook, some of them are hanging on a wall, a few of them are published and part them are a collectable in some friend's warehouse.
