Lyon, Brisbane and Lisboa

It was one of those weeks when Lisboa becomes a hub for sketchers around the world.

Foi uma daquelas semanas em que Lisboa se torna um pólo para desenhadores de todo o mundo.

First, Emmanuel Prost couchsurfed at our place between Lyon and Brasil, and we got to leaf through his incredible sketches featured in a couple of books – one about Caritas in Paris, another, a recipe book from women around the world living in Lyon, for the VRAC Association.

Primeiro, o Emmanuel Prost pernoitou no nosso sofá na viagem entre Lyon e o Brasil, e pudemos espreitar os seus incríveis desenhos publicados num par de livros – um sobre a Caritas em Paris, outro, um livro de receitas de mulheres de todo o mundo, residentes em Lyon, para a Associação VRAC.

The next day, Pedro Alves and I sketched together with Peter Richards from Brisbane, who was spending the week in Lisboa. We spent a good deal of our lunchtime getting to know this veteran architect that recently jump started  in his dormant sketching activity.

No dia seguinte, o  Pedro Alves e eu desenhámos juntos com o Peter Richards de Brisbane, que passava a semana em Lisboa. Aproveitámos a maior parte da hora do almoço a conhecer este arquitecto veterano que, recentemente, deu nova vida à sua actividade de desenhador.

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!
