Pork! It’s pork!

Excerpt of my text in Diários de Viagem 2 (Travelling journals 2) freely translated from the original Portuguese:

“Sketching allows for different scales, compositions, assembling of notes and thoughts. And above all, maybe the feature that pleases me the most, it’s a pretext to sit and take a breath, watching, interpreting for a while, everything that goes around. Might be a problem while travelling in groups: “Isn’t it ready yet?” one might hear eventually, resulting in us being forced to keep on moving with an open sketchbook in our hands, waterwashes still wet (it’s a time-consuming chemical process, the evaporation of the water, especially in near-zero temperatures).”

Pork, food, Pod Samson, Poland, Warsawa, beer
More pork.
hot chocolate, chocolate, Wedel, breakfast, croissant, bread, honey, jam, butter
E. Wedel, a century-old chocolate maker of Warsawa serves richly-flavoured breakfasts in a proper victorian atmosphere.

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!
