Deadline for the 15th PortoCartoon World Festival, Portugal, is 12 March 2013

Dear Cartoonist,
Already into the second decade of this century, the world is still in crisis and full of contradictions.
The three words mobilizing democracy remain shy. So here is an invitation to the most universal language to show the current situation.
The three flags of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity need to fly with universal humour.
The pencil may well be the torches of modernity.
To illuminate the crowds and to scream to the powers of all colours that the world has to change.
Humanity is far ahead and everywhere, before the numbers.
Please open wings, all the HUMOUR to pass!
For Freedom! For Equality! For Fraternity!
You can also show how can honour someone through caricature.
Two symbols of humanity - José Saramago (Nobel of Literature in 1998) and Manoel Oliveira (the world's oldest filmmaker in activity) - are just there for the evocation of the humour.
Both of them are strict defenders of the liberty, equality and fraternity principles.
With wishes for a 2013 full of humour,
we will show that the cartoon does not go in separate ways with
Liberty, Equality and Fraternity
A lesson for those who (mis) rule the world!
Sincerely yours
Luís Humberto Marcos

Cross Braid Sock Bun | Updo Hairstyles

Tonight I want to introduce you to, EveliniCutza, a YouTube Beauty Guru with whom we have had a friendship for over two years now! I originally found out about Evelina when she created a YouTube video response to our popular Waterfall Braid tutorial.

Updo Hairstyles

Evelina is from Moldova, and not only is she beautiful but she is very creative, too! I know that you will enjoy her channel, just as we do!

As a treat to all of you, we posted two videos to YouTube tonight. This one, and another that you will see here on Wednesday night.

Here I show you {using Evelina as my model} how to create a gorgeous sock bun updo, with crossed micro-braid accents. The best thing about this updo, is that you can complete it in under 5 minutes!

This hairstyle is perfect for occasions such as Prom, Homecoming, a wedding, ballet, or any other formal event! {However, this does not stop me from wearing this style in a more dressed down look!}

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 sock bun form, 2 small hair elastics, 2 large hair bands, 2-4 bobby pins, and hairspray {if desired}.
