Drawing someone is always also a process of self representation. Exploring the different types of representations of people in my visual diaries — from the most incipient, shorthand forms to a meticulous attention to every detail — I hope to trace an arc that reaches from the draftsman-artist to the draftsman-scribe.

Desenhar alguém é sempre um processo de auto-representação.Viajando pelos registos de pessoas nos meus diários gráficos – da incipiência estenográfica à atenção meticulosa - traçarei o arco que vai do desenhador-artista ao desenhador-escrivão.
