Journal
Just Some Artists I Learned A Lot From
When it comes to my drawing skills I'm entirely self-taught. When I was a kid, a well-meaning uncle unwittingly gifted me with a rather generic "Learning To Draw In X Easy Lessons" book, and it somehow got me hooked, especially the section about cartoons, which was sadly the shortest one. But: There were ALWAYS MORE books to learn from.
Like many teens with a bit of a creative streak I learned by reading up about the basics, and by copying from comics I enjoyed, and trying out stuff too. I also took a few courses, but I never really studied art or had a proper education. Fortunately, art's a very personal thing and while it does help to know how to contruct and render a photorealistic body, I get more of a kick out of that fact that you can just draw the most reality-defying shapes and still have people recognizing it as a comboy who happens to ride a robot Hot Dog.

[sold] Ferragudo, Algarve
The beautiful town of Ferragudo
Oil on canvas, 40x30 cm
2017 Miguel Santos
Loading...
Drinking beer in a small town on the east side of Algarve, the atmosphere is frenetic while everyone waiting for the procession. Priests, acolytes and devoted people will follow a long Street adorned with flowers on the pavement.
The town is visited by hundreds of people from different nations, religion is the reason why people came but everyone is invited according to Portuguese tolerant behaviour.
I cannot stop having the faint sense of fear as I look at a town happily socialising unaware of the danger of radical movements and so meagerly policed, I counted around 5 cops...
It's the new age we are living.
Happy easter everyone!
