The second exercise of António Procópio‘s workshop at FASVS was to use our skill capturing shapes of reality, as in the previous exercise, and set a scenary where we would frame the sketch with an outer shape, like the void of an arch or between two trees. That frame had to be filled with the shapes of whatever stuff we could see through it.

O segundo exercício da oficina do António Procópio na FASVS era montar um cenário, usando a perícia adquirida no exercício anterior, onde um vazio serviria de moldura, um arco ou o espaço entre duas árvores. A moldura teria de ser cheia com as formas do que lá se encontrasse.

The third exercise was the opposite: one had to start with a central shape, and draw every shape adjacent to it in an outwardly movement.

O terceiro exercício consistia em fazer o oposto: começar com uma forma central, e desenhar todas as formas adjacentes que lhe eram adjacentes, num movimento de expansão.

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!
