Editorial illustration for Portugalize.me

Fly London

I was invited to write a weekly post at Portugalize.me, a blog about being portuguese and the different ways we perceive our country, in and abroad. This is my third post, but the first (of many, I hope) with an illustration by me. It talks about how many portuguese brands market themselves by hiding their portuguese origins, and that the problem arises from the erroneous perception portuguese consumers have that if it is ours is probably not good enough and “what is good comes from abroad”.

These are a pair of the four sandals I own from Fly London, a portuguese brand with wonderful design, materials and construction – and because it is summer year-round here, I get to wear them every single day. I love them!
