What’s great about the Urban Sketchers community is that it’s global and you can always find someone to sketch with when travelling abroad. That’s what happened last week, when Alejandra and Evelyn, from Paris, visited Lisboa for the first time. They contacted the local Urban Sketchers chapter and, after a few emails, a sketch meeting had been prepared with a scenic tour around the old town.

O bestial da comunidade Urban Sketchers é que é global e pode sempre conhecer-se alguém com quem desenhar quando se viaja no estrangeiro. Foi o que aconteceu durante a semana passada, quando a Alejandra e a Evelyn de Paris, visitaram Lisboa pela primeira vez. Contactaram o pólo local de Urban Sketchers e, depois de uma troca de emails, preparou-se um encontro de desenho com um passeio pelo pitoresco centro histórico.

I had the pleasure of organizing the meeting, but I wanted to meet our lovely guests beforehand and get to know them. An evening in Casa do Alentejo did the trick and soon enough, we were chatting about sketching, revolutions, food and of course, Lisboa.

Tive o prazer de organizar o encontro. Mas antes, queria conhecer as nossas simpáticas visitantes. Um serão na Casa do Alentejo resolveu a questão. Rapidamente, a conversa proliferou sobre desenho, revoluções, comida e, claro, Lisboa.

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!
