Roasted chicken and Latin America

More than a year has passed since these sketches were done. They’re a month apart and are the records of a great year to be a sketcher in Lisboa. In a partnership with the Lisboa, Capital Ibero-americana da Cultura program and the Fundação Arpad Szenes-Vieira da Silva, the Urban Sketchers Portugal was able to bring to the city several sketchers from Portugal, Spain and Latin America for a season of lectures and workshops.

Norberto Dorantes and Omar Jaramillo were two notable examples. Both of them enjoyed welcoming lunches at the best roasted chicken place in the city, with the merry company of a few local sketchers.

Já passou mais de um ano desde que estes desenhos foram feitos. Têm um mês de intervalo e são registos de um excelente ano para ser um desenhador em Lisboa. Numa parceria com o programa Lisboa, Capital Ibero-americana da Cultura e com a Fundação Arpad Szenes-Vieira da Silva, os Urban Sketchers Portugal conseguiram trazer à cidade vários desenhadores de Portugal, Espanha e América Latina para uma temporada de palestras e oficinas.

O Norberto Dorantes e o Omar Jaramillo foram dois exemplos notáveis. Ambos puderam disfrutar de um almoço de boas vindas no melhor frango assado da cidade, na companhia alegre de alguns urban sketchers locais.

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!
