The artist began doing street art in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Senna remains based out of Sao Paulo.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

In this clip some examples of street art by Alex Senna:

Most of Senna’s work is in black and white, the artist is color blind.

Senna is such a great draftsman. I enjoy the great depth he gives his characters by giving them very bold and defined shadows. Its great that he didn’t let the fact he is colorblind slow down his brilliance as an visual artist.

Vatapá (Brazilian Shrimp Stew)

bender cooking

FullSizeRender 42

Staying on the Brazil train for a moment – because the Olympics are inspiring in more ways than one!  This classic Brazilian dish is delicious.  It’s also a bit time-consuming if you do it the original way. And it has some harder to find ingredients.  So I streamlined the original recipe, which I got from my favorite Saveur: The New Classics cookbook, to make it easier without sacrificing flavor.


  • 3/4 lb Cod Fillet
  • 1/4 cup Cashews
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Peanuts
  • 3 Scallions
  • 2 Dried Chiles de Árbol (I used Thai Dragon Chiles though)
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 One inch piece fresh Ginger
  • 6 oz Country-style White Bread (I used a French Bread)
  • 1 14 oz can Coconut Milk (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup Palm Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 3-5 canned, whole peeled Tomatoes
  • 4 cups Fish Stock
  • 1 lb. Shrimp
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper
  • Optional: 1/2 cup small dried shrimp…

99 Word Blog (#022) Two Olympians’ Hearts of Gold


On 08/16/16, two Olympians, running the 5,000-meter race, collided… American Abbey D’Agostino and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin. For D’Agostino, who’d sustained painful knee ligament injuries, her new top priority had become helping Hamblin… urging her onward…

“Get up, get up! We have to finish! This is the Olympic Games. We have to finish this.”

Afterwards, Hamblin helped D’Agostino into a wheelchair.

Abbey and Nikki had been the last to cross the finish line but their good sportsmanship, sense of community and hearts of gold are worthy of Olympic Gold. Our troubled world could learn much from these two women.
