1. How was Ciudades dibujadas born?

Ciudades dibujadas was born in Havana. The first draws of a known, close urban environment came out the neighborhood, with all the elements that make up our image of the city. You see them every day, you walk by, and when you sit down and “think” of a city the first to appear is this, the immediate. I was always interested in architecture, I think that the concern of vision at a scale beyond the object should have come out somehow in each draw.
