From the children’s author to the adult author: a story of the cycle(s) of the authorship(s)

Barbosa, Helena ;


From a previously performed work, the paper intends to deepen some content focused on issues of authorship. To do this, the paper reveals some examples of production of material culture that became references in my childhood and that also influenced my path in adolescence until adulthood. The paper also describes a history about my graphic expression in that period and also my influences, to better understand not only the results of my visual communication, but also to contextualize some personal decisions that, in some way, involved the ballast of the importance of the authorship. It is understood that this comparative study makes it possible to realize how the authorship, while producing images, plays a key role in the construction of identity, and allows to know some important authors who were part of my childhood universe, bringing to light names and unknown histories.
