People in Lisbon! From today until the 19th of May you should totally pass by "Jardim Boto Machado" and check out the open-air exhibition "Prata da Casa", it has more than 100 pieces from Portuguese illustrators! And if you do... can I ask you for a huge favour? Will you please take a photo of my piece (featured here) and send it to me? I'd love to see how it looks like in the space 👁👁 (thank you!) I wish I could go there and check out all the pieces by the other 119 artists, the ones I've seen so far look amazing.⠀⠀
Huge thanks to @andredaloba for the invitation, it was an honor to be included in this list. ⠀⠀

👁️ (Note: I added an image at the end with some of the rough sketches I did for the first illustration! Usually with these I'm only trying to figure out an interesting composition and pose that tells a story... then I take a photo, get it in Photoshop, and redraw the image based on my rough sketch.⁣)⁣⠀
⁣⠀
On to what you're seeing👇⁣⠀
These are a few illustrations I made for the "Observador Lifestyle" magazine ( @revistaobservadorlifestyle ), for a sponsored article on how to make your kids interested in reading books from an early age. Thank you @luis.o.designer for the art direction!⁣⠀

My youngest niece turned 2 😭 Where did the time go? She's currently obsessed with the "Old MacDonald had a farm" song so I drew a lot of farm animals on her invitation. ⁣⠀
Question: Do you ever purchase invitation designs online to use for your own kids' (or grownup) parties? I have a few designs that I drew for my nieces's parties throughout the years and have been wondering if I should adapt and add them as digital downloads to my etsy shop... 🤔⁣⠀

🔎 Map I made for "The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete in Paris!" by @shopashima⁣⠀
(Characters will always be my strong suit... but turns out I do enjoy drawing architecture as long as I can keep it messy and squiggly! Gotta thank @theresagrieben for the inspiration when it comes to drawing buildings and maps... her work is so beautiful!)⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Book available in my shop, with a tiny doodle and a dedication if you'd like.⁣⠀

My Etsy shop is back online! ⁣⠀
🙏 Please kindly note that my studio is currently a pile of boxes in my living room while I search for a new place, and so shipping times have been extended... it might take me a bit longer than usual to ship your order. Thank you for your understanding and for supporting my work! 💛⁣⠀

I have never managed to keep a sketchbook. I was honestly always envious of @storycoding and @theresagrieben for their ability to just doodle and explore the environment through drawing all the time. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
I mean, I do have a work sketchbook, where I draw all the thumbnail compositions and ideas before going for the final painting, but it's not pretty. It's a visual cacophony of wobbly drawings and bad handwriting. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
And then I have this tiny one. I use it whenever I am on holiday, but most of the times I have to *make* myself use it. So I've had it for 4 years now and it's still only 1/3 through. But that's ok! I'm slowly learning we shouldn't measure our own success or achievements compared to what others do or what you *should* do... I am deep down a planner, not an improviser at all. So it's hard for me to "just draw". I sketch, and I explore ideas, and I enjoy the process and taking my time to get somewhere. What about you? Do you keep a sketchbook? Was it easy to get into the habit of using it?⁣⠀

🐒🐍 One of my favourite spreads from "The Jungle Book", by #yoyobooks . I absolutely love the challenge of figuring out how to condense information and storytelling into one image. In this case, I had to show that the monkeys took Mowgli, Kaa (the snake) saved him by hypnotising them, while Baloo and Baghera rescued Mowgli from this whole mess.⁣⠀
