This is a classic when I’m in a new place with my partner. In the background La Guarida de las Maravillas, Tapineria Street (Valencia).
PS: The crowdfunding for the book of Valencia is not having a resounding success.
Another book that won’t make me rich.

I was drawing this drawing of Pintor Sorolla Street in the city of Valencia while listening to Miguel Noguera’s “Infrashow” podcast, a strangely recommended podcast (in Spanish).
In the reference photo it was a taxi in the middle of the street and I found it interesting to change it for a cow and thus be able to get an idea of what the city of Valencia would look like if we allowed the free movement of animals, as in India.
Conclusion: Yes to cows in cities.

Fallen like this the myth I decided to make to version of one of his best known series, the sunflowers. This image I show here is an almost finished version.

Last week I finished this drawing of the bar Los escalones de la Lonja, in the city of Valencia.
Seen on a screen and in black and white the illustration is a bit tough. I like it that way but I know that color always works much better.
