Home: Leça da Palmeira. I have very good memories of this square and #batô (the bar on the left).
Next weekend, one of the mythical taverns in Porto will close the door. At least I kept a couple of sketches I did there, in the paper tablecloth, while tasting a nice homemade fish and chatting with Sr. Sousa. Farewell “Adega do Olho”! Adeus!
A fast sketch at one of many slopes at Porto. #lamy on #muji #sketchbook.
People say here you can find the “best hot-dog in Porto”! When the owner realized I was sketching, asked me to draw him a “gazela” (gazelle). Finally, I gave him this sketch; i think he was happy 🙂

Porto’s downtown is changing rapidly. A couple of years ago, the major part of its building were abandoned. These days, due to tourism and speculation, they are being reconstructed, fortunately. Nevertheless, I feel somehow this urge to record the city I was used to….
Drawing with @joaopauloalbergaria at Miragaia. Its houses, slopes, colors, rhythms, shadows and people make it an amazing neighborhood to be sketched!
