Automotive interlude

Renault 5 TL

Renault 5 TL

This Renault 5 TL was just outside our doorstep in Benfica. The exercise was inspired by Lapin’s sketches sitting on the sidewalk one meter away from the bumper.

Unknown vehicle

This unknown brand rusted down van was parked outside a falafel place in Möllan in Malmö. My poor travel companions had to endure the finishing of all the rust in the sketch even after everybody had eaten their falafels.

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. Adorável o desenho, e o carro a encher-me de memórias. Foi um Renault 5 igualzinho a este, mas branco, o primeiro carro do meu pai, comprado em 1980 por 340 contos. Foi nele que aprendi a guiar, muito antes de ter 18 anos. Já um bocado desgastado, foi trocado em 1993 por um Renault Clio…
    Obrigado pelo reavivar de memórias com o teu desenho.

    1. Olá Nelson. Obrigado pela visita e pelo comentário! Estes clássicos dos anos 80 estão mesmo cheios de memórias para nós que crescemos entre eles. São os meus favoritos quando faço um “à Lapin”.
