Upcoming exhibitions tributes by international artists to Valentina to promote Crepax Fantagraphics collection

Dear friends and artists,
Due to several problems I still wasn't able to exhibit some of the magnificient artists that sent me works for this purpose from all over the world (lack of time, a space or organization), since you're too many and I'm the first one to blame myself in my work always.
 I've curated an exhibition in Seattle - Fantagraphics bookstore and gallery, Scott Eder's gallery in New York, in Helsinki - Finland comic book festival this year and at my hometown Porto at Boémia Caffé.
 I'm only a mere guy from Porto and you're too many to organize and I'm not José Mourinho, the soccer manager, Cristiano Ronaldo, the soccer player, John Constantine, the Hellblazer or Neil Gaiman's Sandman.

I also have my own personal life and you're too many to organize and sometimes it seems that I'm fighting my own inner demons while defending myself with words as John Constantine aka Hellblazer.

I just need what everybody needs, a dream and a physical space.

So, making this post is hard for me, but It's a reminder that all of your amazing artworks aren't forgotten in my head and that they'll have an exhibition place.

Meanwhile, I still must keep control of Crepax Fantagraphics collection and other projects which makes sometimes look at my time and see that I don't have it at all :(

Many thanks for all your excellent support and feedback given from all over the world.
Special thanks to Gary Groth, Caterina Crepax, Family, friends and my muse and source of inspiration kitty Ilvie that was stolen from my sight and life recently.
