This project is close to my heart as it was my first work after a burnout I had in 2019. The title uses a pun with the Portuguese word for 'pun'.

Trocadilho became Trokanjilho.

This book is a compilation of matching sentences and illustrations that help Portuguese speakers remember Japanese vocabulary through puns.


Some puns required a bit more context and those were brought by the blackboard with extra information, always on odd pages so both contents can be read at once.

This project gave me some exposure to Japanese language students. I ended up presenting it on a youtube live to 1.7k people on one of Brazil's biggest Japanese language schools' channels.
