Portraits at Martas #3

Teresa and Daniel

The last workshop was attended by Teresa – co-founder of local project Fruktsam – and Daniel. Both were really enthusiastic with the blind sketching exercises and in about one hour and four drawings later, their concentration was paying off. Results were showing and they were realizing that drawing has a lot to do with careful observing and that it is within reach. Thus was the mythical wall of talent cracked.

This was my blind portrait of them, while they concentrated on each other.

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!

  1. Hi Pedro,

    thanks again for the amazing blind sketching exercises. Even though it was “blind” sketching it was literally an “eye-opener” and it was very inspiring to be taught by you!

    Best wishes,
