Luís Simões is a Portuguese illustrator that started a world adventure in 2012 called “World Sketching Tour”. He left his job and his everyday life to embark in this life’s journey. In the way, he expects to open his mind, achieve the dream of knowing the whole world and, essentially, be happy. During five years he’ll be exploring the five continents – one per year – portraying them in sketches.
As a compulsive observer and owner of an extraordinary visual memory, Luís photographs the world with his eyes, pens and watercolors, capturing the essence of each culture, person, landscape and country in a special and unique way; immortalizing each moment in sketchbooks. Furthermore, Luís tells his experiences in the project website, also transporting us by words to his life adventures.
