Lapo is almost too charming for words. The Lisbon-based illustrator was born in Rio de Janeiro and studied at London’s Central Saint Martins before moving to Portugal, where her illustrative projects are growing rapidly. Such collections range from the ongoing Viana, in which she draws portraits of 14 residents from Viana do Castelo in Lisbon, to Pet Love, which ensures correct caring for loved animals.
My favourite though is In Paris, a series of 25 drawings about life in the French capital, including such nuggets of wisdom as “In Paris all dancers at the Crazy Horse cabaret are chosen to be indistinguishable on stage in height and in breast size and shape” and “In Paris watch out for Vincent Cassels.” Her observations about the French and their ways are timelessly funny and adorably executed, so you’ll still find joy in them from the comfort of your own home.
