An “Alentejana” to the core from Grândola.  With a stop in Caldas da Rainha before settling in Lisbon. Unconditional fan of Bordallo Pinheiro influenced by one of his greatest admirers.  Freelance illustrator. Graphic designer working in advertising for over 30 years.

Sardine - Submarine in yellow

In the year of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ album “Yellow Submarine”, it is only fair to pay tribute to it, using our greatest icon, which is also yellow: the electric streetcar number 28. More and more a symbol of how Lisbon has become a world city. Only these two made me like yellow! Designer: Alexandra Mendes
