Ele cuidou do departamento de Cartum Digital do SICAF, evento que premiou o gaucho Rafael Correa, que concorreu com os tambem finalistas William Martins (SP) e Daniel Ete (Campinas) e agora quer montar uma exposição de cartuns latino-americanos que mostrem nossas cidades e culturas para o povo coreano.
Eu o conheci pessoalmente em Bucheon, durante o Bicof (Festival de Quadrinhos) quando recebi sua gentil visita com catálogos e DVDs do SICAF.

I had a meeting with a company which organizes comic and art exhibitions in Korea today
They launched international Cartoon & Art Festival (ICAFE) in 2011 and at their first edition, they showed
Jean-Jacques Sempe- famous french cartoonist, Le petit Nicolas- special exhibition
And as of this year, 2012, they brought Tezuak Osamu, the greatest comic artists from Japan
and the father of astro boy(Atom) for their special exhibition
You can see their information at website below,
i'm sorry this company don't have their english website by now, so please check this article first
And I explained my plan to visit Latin America and they showed interest in having an exhibition with works
from Latin America
But as you know well, it depends on some conditions:
First, their works should be impressive, creative and most of all representative of their countries
or Latin America to Korean audiences first and I think it's the basic rule of exchanging cultures
And this project can be composed of two ways. one is a special exhibition of some famous artists in Latin
like Tezuak Osamu special exhibition, the other is a group exhibition of some country like Brasilian comics chronicles from 19xx to 2012
So I will try to meet many artists at there more than my earlier expectation and will have talks with them
and get their profile as much as I can and that means I have no choice but to skip famous landscapes this time
cause I need to concentrate on meeting artists during this time
And to avoid any misunderstanding or confusion,
the final decision will be made by the president in that company but I will try hard to make it possible
Wow... just 2 weeks left before I arrive in Latin America
Meet my friends at there soon
Thanks a lot

Eu acho que ele devia passar em Belem, Natal, Fortaleza, Salvador, BH, Garopaba e Porto Alegre, mas tenho de ver se e' possivel inserir esses estados na sua viagem.
"Hello Bira Dantas
I do really appreciate of your big help since last year
Without your help, i can't even think of meeting lots of artists in your country
And as you might guess, this travel to Latin America was originated from you :)
I was deeply impressed by you in Bucheon last year and that made me fly to Latin America this time
I owed you too much
Thanks a lot again
And may i ask you something again?
I will go to Rio de Janeiro and hope to meet artists at there also
but don't have enough information about artists in Rio de Janeiro
So if your time permits, would you let me know some information please
And i will check the blog below carefully
Thanks a lot again

Global Cartoon & Comics Exhibition SICAF.
Podemos ter uma tênue imagem do tamanho da organização dos coreanos, quando se trata de Quadrinhos, Cartuns ou Animação: MUITO INVESTIMENTO!
10 BRAZILIAN CARTOONISTS PARALLEL EXHIBITION
Essa exposição paralela mostrou um pouco do Quadrinho e Caricatura de países como Franca, Espanha, Serbia, Inglaterra, Italia, Brazil e Africa. Foram 80 trabalhos de 41 artistas neste Festival de Cartuns e Desenhos animados em Seoul, na Coreia do Sul.
Os 10 brasileiros convidados:
Santiago (ganhou Yumiury Shinbum com esse cartum)
Jin Woo Choi repassou as fotos do evento:
Foi produzido um belo catalogo com quase 300 paginas, infelizmente em baixa tiragem, o que impossibilitou que o SICAF o enviasse a todos os participantes. Mas aqui podemos ver algumas paginas e o destaque da caricatura do ex-ministro da Cultura Gilberto Gil, nas pinceladas do mestre Eduardo Vetillo.
EXPO, RAFAEL GANHA EM VOTACAO ON-LINE
Parabens a Stegun, Eduardo Vetillo, Paffaro, Nei Lima, Novaes, Quinho, Santiago, Mano Head e Dalcio, que participaram enviando seus trabalhos e abrilhantando esse festival do outro lado do mundo.
Parabens também a Moretti, Carriero, Wilson MR, Monico Reis, Daniel ET, Alves, Rafael Bittencourt Correa e Paulo Volmar Mattos Vilanova que enviaram trabalhos para o Festival, se classificaram em WEB-CARTOON E DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION e concorreram na votação on-line.
E mais parabéns ainda ao Rafael que ganhou a votação on-line.
