Awesome Renault 5 Alpine Turbo (Monte Carlo Rally replica) at #classicsandlegends, circuito Ricardo Tormo. The Renault 5 was was definitely my childhood car: it was like drawing memories! Drawn on site, with uniball, staedlerpen and pentelbrushpen.  #renault5alpine #renault5alpineturbo

If you live in Bushwick you should have notice this lovely Chevy Impala, always parked around this corner. I did the sketch on site, drawing it directly on ink and painting using watercolor. This image was used to ilustrate to my NYC book cover, awarded at the 18e rendez-vous du Carnet de Voyage.

I’ve been drawing a lot the 80’s version of the Ford F-150, using pictures I find in the web. It is one of the protagonists of the storyboard I’m working on, so, when I saw this one in Brooklyn, I couldn’t resist to draw it live!

This afternoon, I visited a new building designed by Alvaro Siza: a fire station in a small city, 30 km from Oporto. As all his buildings, everything is designed by his office, from the general spaces to the door handles. I dedicate this drawing to my friend Tiago, on his 40th birthday: he was a major influence in my early sketches, when we lived in Paris.

The detail displays my personal and unpretentious interpretation of Altea old town.

En el detalle se puede ver una de mi interpretación personal (sin pretensiones) del casco antiguo de Altea.

Family house at Altea: I've drawn this composition a couple of times. It won't be the last, for sure: I'm not happy with the tonal values and the lack of contrast. The next time, I will try to do it with brighter colors ... Casa de mi familia en Altea, proyectada en los años 50 por el abuelo de mi mujer: Dibujé esta vista ya bastente veces. No será la última, seguro. No me quedé contento com los tonos y la flata de contraste. La próxima vez intentaré pintarlo com colores más brillantes...

altea -6-14 002_mehari-rps At the Beach of Campomanes the sidewalks are often used to park the car, so people have to walk on the street. Strange urban reversal functions. If the car is a lovely orange Mehari like this one, I can excuse it (almost!)….
