I am very interested in drawing people: seeing how they move and talk, looking at their clothes, looking at them in their day to day life. I like observation, looking, creating imaginary dialogues and in that way put in paper something closer to people so that someone can stop to look at my drawings and even feel identified in some way.’ Matías Prado

Below is the plan for how to make one and the youtube link is at the bottom of this post.
