The estado de alarma & subsequent quarantine due to COVID-19 gave me time to return to an old hobby: making vector reproductions of Portuguese tile panels. While I’ve never been much of an artist, copying has always come easy… perhaps a result of how I visualize the world & see detail. Whatever the reason, immersing myself in azulejos for a few hours each week gave me some much-needed distraction from what was happening in the world.
I’ll continue to add to this post as time goes by & draw more. Truth is, I’d love to print these as individual postcards or sized to fit in a basic IKEA frame, but other projects are more pressing at the moment. Anyone interested in print versions?
