“If you told me six years ago that I could do this I would never believe you… Because really, I’m lazy as a panda, I'm not very smart, and I have difficulty focusing on one thing at one time. So i had to create a system, a strategy to sit and draw, because I really love to draw. ”

In Dumb, Lazy, and Unruly Perfectionist from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 132nd Volume, Speaker Vasco Mourão, an Architect turned illustrator with a tendency for obsessive drawing and detail, explains his creative process.
