Fabio Zimbres

Fabio Zimbres was born in São Paulo, Brazil, 1960, and lives and works presently in Porto Alegre, Brazil. He is a veteran that has worked for many, many publications in Brazil, including the now mythical Animal and Chiclete com Banana, but continuing to participate with short stories for contemporary anthologic magazines such as Front, among so many others.

He has a book published by Spanish house Media Vaca, illustrating Blaise Cendrar's Panama. He has also published a couple of years ago a collaboration with the Brazilian rock band Mechanics, which led to the CD/book Música para Antropomorfos, with each story-chapter corresponding to one of the songs.

In the States, you can look up for the Alternative Comics anthology (edited by Ng Suat Tong) Rosetta 2, with the beautifully coloured I Married a Bee:
He also participated in Matt Madden's Exercises in Style, where you'll find Fabio's rendering of the story:

The style is deceiving... Lot's of weird stuff going on with his characters...
And you should see his drawings and notebooks!

Check out his site and blog.
