  We are Patricia Shim and Vera Machado, two artists from Lisbon, Portugal that found a common passion in picture-books, illustration and animation.

  As a studio we aim to research graphic storytelling in its multiple forms, be it analog and digital zines, picture books, animation pieces or any kind of experimental medium that is able to evoke the power of storytelling through pictures.

  As a small press we are focusing mainly in printing zines and illustrations. Our own and invite other artists along too.

  Dói-dói means boo-boo in Portuguese and it's here to console your heart with beautiful stories and illustrations ♡

you can find us at:



or in our studio in Lisbon
