My last sketch in 2014. Usteristrasse 14, in Zürich, where the Latvian poet Rainis (1865-1929) lived in 1912. This is a project for an exhibition about him, to be held in Latvia in 2015.

Spending a long week in Montpellier, France, I thought I would have had more time to draw, but it turned out to be more difficult than expected to switch from rehearsing at the opera to sketching.

I spent a few days in Munich, Germany, to play in Dido&Aeneas at the Bayerische Staatsoper. I took time to walk through the city, visit the Haus der Kunst, go swimming at the incredible Müller'sche Volksbad (entirely in Art Nouveau style, don't miss it if you go to Munich, danke Julian für den Tipp) and to draw a few sketches.

I was looking for another luxury car to draw, when i found something much more interesting : an old abandoned van gently rusting on a carpet of dandelions, just behind the railroad. I definitely needed a Mater for my Lightning McQueen...
