Mister Mourao (aka Vasco Mourao) is a Portuguese architect turned into a freelance illustrator with (as he explains) “a tendency for obsessive drawing“. His methodical and detailed illustrations represent real or invented structures and buildings always from different perspectives. The buildings are sometimes exploded or distorted, fragmented and reassembled. The simplicity of the black line contrasts with the richness of the compositions.

"With language we can ask, as can no other living beings, those questions about who we are and why we are here. And this highly developed intellect means, surely, that we have a responsibility toward the other life-forms of our planet whose continued existence is threatened by the thoughtless behavior of our own human species — quite regardless of whether or not we believe in God. Indeed, those who acknowledge no God, but are convinced that we are in this world as an evolutionary accident, may be more active in environmental responsibility — for if there is no God, then, obviously, it is entirely up to us to put things right. On the other hand, I have encountered a number of people with a strong faith in God who shrug off their own human responsibilities, believing that everything is safely “in God’s hands.” I was brought up to believe that “God helps those who help themselves.” We should all take responsibility, all play our part in helping to clean up and heal the planet that, in so many ways, we have desecrated.”
