She knows what she wants

My daughter is 2,5 years old. She dresses and undresses herself already. She only dresses what she wants. I gave up buying her the clothes i like, because she never likes them. So i stopped being angry and just let her dress whatever she wants. She makes odd but very creative mixes of clothes and she ...

These precious things

My daughter asks me many times to climb up to her room’s window and to just be there, looking outside, observing all the daily routines from our neighbours: the guys that pick up the trash, the birds, the bicycles or the big tree that’s in the back of the building. She likes to see al ...

The Food Sketcher

  Já há muito que não coloco nada no meu blog de desenhos sobre comida – thefoodsketcher. Decidi então terminar e digitalizar alguns desenhos que estavam meio esquecidos no meu livrinho de rabiscos, feitos durante a nossa ultima viagem à India, no ano passado e para matar saudades e salivar um bocadinho, tenho andado a ...

Era uma Vez…

Até há bem pouco tempo, quando adormecia a Rita e me apetecia uma história nova (senão adormecia eu!), costumava contar-lhe uma que fui inventando, um bocadinho de cada vez. É uma história muito simples, contada baixinho, com as nossas caras encostadinhas e na qual a Rita é a personagem principal. Provavelmente ela não entendia o ...

Rita!

  Finalmente, um post no blog, desde que desapareci, há 4 meses atrás! É verdade, nasceu a Rita no fim do mês de Dezembro de 2014 e desde então, o meu tempo tem sido todo para ela e dificilmente consigo ter um tempo para mim. Os intervalos em que consigo fazer alguma coisa, durante os ...

Lovely Rita

  Só para partilhar uma coisa muito boa que tem acontecido por aqui e que é muito difícil de “esconder”, especialmente quando o meu trabalho e a vida têm sido tão inspirados por esta novidade. Eu e o André estamos à espera de uma mini pessoa : ) No início do próximo ano esperamos que ...

Spargelzeit!

It’s Spargelzeit! The season of white asparagus is on and i have never seen anything like this! It’s everywhere! The season is short, runs from mid-April to almost the end of June and it marks the end of the cold and gray weather and the beginning of Spring and Summer. Usually, in Portugal, we don’t go ...

The Food Sketcher

  Some days ago, while i was seating in a coffee shop having tea and a muffin, i was thinking about life and about new ideas to pursue. Yesterday, on a rainy day, i decided to start one of these ideas – basically it’s a blog where i can share many of the food illustrations ...

India Revisited

Some pictures from the last month spent in India. I am very thankful for this opportunity to go back and very thankful to have such special connection with this place and with the friends that always welcome me there. It was wonderful to re-visit some of them in their houses, with their growing families and ...

Summer days are over

These last days have been bit cold and rainy. It looks like the summer is over… The sidewalks and the parks start to have the first fallen and yellow leaves. I like to collect them and press them inside my books to make my own herbarium. And in the markets is already possible to find ...

Fim de semana a passear por aí com o meu André, falafel, hummus e baklavas com chá ...
