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.
The Bernat Vinya bar is one of the oldest and most emblematic bars in Ibiza. To make this drawing I sat at a table and asked for a coffee and a meat empanadilla. An hour and a half later I went out the door towards Sa Caleta. It was 2012 and Gangnam Style was a super-hit all around the world (fucking shit).
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.
This is the bar: Profile in Tripadvisor
