Illustration // Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Pedro Pinto has years worth of drawings on his Flickr account in many varying styles, mediums and techniques.

They have a hint of futuristic appeal and time-travel to them, unlike some of his other work- and lava lamps?! Great.

I did not start like most of the artists I've met. As I've been listening, a majority of them had been enthusiastic about art, almost since they were born...' Oriol Angrill
