About the project
This set of vector drawings was part of a personal project meant to illustrate a traditional Oporto festivity: São João. The night of São João is one of the most important festivals in the city and it has a few particularities that make it such a well-known festival in the country. People offer each other basil plants, eat grilled sardines and meat, launch sky lanterns... I decided to represent some of the objects that characterize the festival, and stick to bright and happy colours, as a way to portray the livelihood of São João.
