Last summer, after returning from Camiño/a, I was commissioned by Roberto Verino to make some illustrations for the spring/summer collection 2018 dedicated to Lanzarote and probably its most famous artist César Manrique
I travelled to Lanzarote in late september and was enchanted by its rough beauty and Manrique´s spirit which is present all over the island in extraordinary arquitecture which preserves the environment and emphasises the natural characteristics of the place.
I´m especially grateful for the local Urban Sketchers group whose members received me with open arms and helped with the first orientation from a sketcher´s point of view besides joining me with their sketchbooks whenever possible.
All illustrations made on the island are currently exhibited at Roberto Verino/Ourense and some of them will be printed on garments from the collection Dream Island available in stores in march 2018
update: already available 😀
