No matter how much I squinted and pressed my senses, warmth flowed fast. No other color spoke, except for the ones who felt like being burned.

At this coin de la rue, good manners dictate who wants it most.

However, I think it may be time to move on, change the rhythm and explore something new.

I finally have a sketchbook that’s perfectly made. After ruining 3 or 4 sketches on a Moleskine, I bought a (http://www.kunst-papier.com). It is fine German quality which can be felt on every part of the sheet. Nothing against Moleskine, I would rather spend a few hours knowing “I’m good to go”, than in a state of uncertainty.

Okay, back to the sketch. Cups really give me pleasure to illustrate. They have  beautiful symmetry which begs to explore, shave and hatch. They are also useful to contain the nicest beverage ever discovered. Coffee.

Outdoors and cafe

Today was a beast.

The humidity was relentless and came home with very unhappy sinuses and headache. However, art always prevails, especially after creating this intricate composite of a cafe and outdoor building.

I couldn’t resist the composition and am content, now that it is accomplished. (http://www.caffe-classico.com) (http://www.miralea.com)
