dinosaurs, vintage cars and cool planes…

2 weeks ago, I participated to the first sketchkon in pasadena organized by the online school sketchbook skool.
imagine 500 hundreds sketchers together during 4 days listening to talks and participating to workshops about hundreds way to fill a sketchbook: urban sketching, lettering, food sketch, live drawing, reportage…
it was super inspiring, a pure dose of creativity meeting lots of old and new friends.
here are some of the sketches I managed to do during the convention, between my "all you can see" workshop, my 2 talks "my life in sketchbooks" and "lost poblenou: a record of change" and my "big head portrait" demo. that was quite a busy week-end.
I would never thank you enough koosje, danny and all the sketchbook skool team for putting together such a nice community!

book launch "poblenou"

book launch "poblenou"!
exposición y presentación del libro "Poblenou. Atlas ilustrado de un barrio industrial" publicado por el Ajuntament de Barcelona en presencia del autor Lapin y de Jorge Carrión:
jueves 25 de octubre a partir de las 19:00.
Can Picó, calle de Pere IV, 58, metro Bogatell


The book I was working on during the last 3 years is finally ready!
I started documenting the gentrification affecting my Barcelona neighborhood, as old factories are replaced by hotels and office buildings.
The pages of my sketchbook have become a record of change, as the old is bulldozed in the name of progress. This is my testimony to keep in mind what made Poblenou special to me.

You are all invited for the book launch and exhibition on Thursday 25th of October at 19:00 in Can Picó, calle de Pere IV, 58 in Barcelona.
