This illustration was published on the cover of Diário de Notícias, on the anniversary of the Carnation Revolution, a day that this year (2020) coincided with the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown. People were asked to cut the drawing and tape it in windows or anywhere they liked. Because the drawing became somewhat viral and people seemed to like it, I reached out to Lisbon's Urban Art Gallery (GAU), the institution that manages public art in the city, and proposed to donate the image, to be made into a mural. They offered a wall near the east entrance to the busy Sete Rios Train Station. Veteran street artist Raps accepted the challenge to paint it , and I'm really happy with the result. While painting it, people would stop and thank us. One older gentleman said that his day would end with a smile. That was all we needed to hear.
