When people in Valencia go cycle in the mountains, they usually stop in some bar, like this one in Serra, to have a big “almuerzo”, usually a huge sandwich and beer or wine… and of course, some peanuts and olives. It takes a while to eat all that, so I always have time to sketch before jumping to the bicycle again. #micronpen on #moleskine #sketchbook
Beautiful Mantua, ruled by the huge Leon Battista Alberti’s Basilica. #lamy, #uniballpen and #pentelbrushpen

In Florence, at Via de’ Tornabuoni, in between roberto Cavalli an Bulgari stores, facing Palazzo Strozzi. This palace, located in the heart of Florence, is one of the finest examples of private Renaissance architecture in this city.
According to Palazzo Strozzi Foundation‘s website, it was commissioned by the Florentine merchant Filippo Strozzi and the foundations were laid in 1489 according to a design by Benedetto da Maiano. A year later the project was given to Simone del Pollaiolo, known as Cronaca, who worked on it until 1504 but the Palazzo was only finally finished in 1538. The Palazzo remained the property of the Strozzi family until 1937, and since 1999 it has been managed City of Florence.
The Ferrari and my bike at Gran Via. Done in 1h20m using 4 different pens (Lamy, Uni-ball, Pentel and Pilot).
Last weekend I went to visit the museum at Canals (Tormo’s bornplace) where I drew this Motorbike that Ricardo Tormo (twice world champion in 50cc) drove in the Montjuic 24h race in 1974.
This is an illustration I did for a friend, a big sport enthusiastic!
