About

Welcome to Arhanta Comics & Music on Patreon!

Arhanta Comics & Music is a passion project, a "sandbox" to play and try things out. Publishing original music and art, sharing the process along the way. Created and managed by artist Camilo Nascimento, maker and fan of music and visual art since the early 90's.

Check out the website at arhantacomics.com

My background:
I've been an avid reader, appreciator and collector of music and comic books since an early age, starting collecting from shops in South Jersey, Philadelphia and New York City. Plus graphic novels from Brasil, Japan and France made their way into my hands from my father, a lover of high quality draftsmanship from around the world.

Passionate about art education, I earned a BFA from UNC Charlotte, North Carolina in 2000, then over the next 7 years served a wide variety of customers as a freelance graphic designer, making ends meet by working as a cook, bookkeeper, store manager, conservation frame designer and builder, and on some rare occasions as a jazz guitarist. In 2007 I went back to school and earned a Masters degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA. Since 2009, I've been successfully running an illustration and design studio called CAMILO Graphics & Web Solutions. I teach art and design via tutorials and workshops, please feel free to contact me for more information.

About the name "Arhanta" - so back in the day in South Jersey, a group of friends and I started a band called Arhanta; a low-stress, creative outlet with a lot of room for experimentation. The term is of Buddhist origin, basically a state of being, on the path to enlightenment. Understanding and being true to oneself was a message heard loud and clear from our favorite artists and musicians at the time. We played small shows and released indie albums, and would often meet to thoroughly discuss music and art innovations in general. The camaraderie and fun, collaborative spirit struck a chord that has rung strong in me ever since.

I'm On a Quest! To strike a balance between spontaneous poetry and deliberate cartography; to find the place where creative dreams are sewn together to weave epic tales.

Camilo Nascimento
