Having someone from outside coming to sketch your town makes you discover it with fresh eyes.

Sketching cars with ...Lapin

The thing about sketching with Lapin is that you sketch a lot more than you normally do. He hand is so curious about what surrounds him that you start looking with fresh eyes your surroundings and wanting to do and redo more drawings.
The other thing is his love for cars specially oldies and suddenly I, that don't care much about cars, have started sketching cars...and having fun even if in the final drawings my cars look like whales and sharks.
These sketches were done at the Port de Pêche Artisanale in Nouakchott. We were there to sketch the boats. We never reached the sea as we stayed in the parking until sunset.
