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 ...

“Tudo o que aprendi com os Livros”

Há uns meses atrás, uma amiga que agora trabalha na Fnac, a Carmo, falou-me duma ideia que tinha. Uma ideia que envolvia cadernos, as Papelarias Emílio Braga, ilustradores/criadores portugueses, uma colecção de sketchbooks e um tema “Tudo o que aprendi com os Livros”. Uns meses depois, aqui está o resultado! (Está a ser preparada também ...

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…

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 ...

  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! There are Asparagus Festivals, everywhere in the markets they sell this fresh and peculiar vegetable and the restaurants include many dishes of it, in their menus.

  Finally, i had my my first pretzel. I think we all have a fixation for some foods. I have. And every time i go to a new country, my thing is to experiment new flavors and to spend some time around markets and supermarkets to see the brands and the local foods. I believe that this is how ...

The Perfect Market

I am a markets lover (who isn’t??) and when fabrics, food and other small stuff are together in just one, two days a week – perfection! This first time i went to the turkish market with the intention of “i am just going to have a look and see what they have”, but i ended ...
