I am absolutely jealous!! not only is a trip to such a beautiful place an amazing experience, but that homecooked food looks so amazingly delicious... definitely envying Joao for his mom's cooking right now. That, and meeting such a fantastic set of artists, too.

Looking forward to the post showing more art!

p.s: those sketches look amazing.

These photos are amazing, I think I already told you this! The one with you surrouded by all the graffiti is my favorite, I kind of wanna do a painting based off of it. :)

Amazing work. What does your travel art kit include? those little landscapes are so wonderful, but I feel like I'd need tons of materials which makes it inconvenient to just whip out and start painting. Can you let us in on your process/materials for that?

Wonderful post!
