Tiago Leal is a professional illustrator from Lisbon, Portugal.

In May 2012, Tiago went on a journey starting in Coimbra, Portugal and then continuing on foot over 100km through Spain, from A Coruña to Santiago de Compostela. He travelled with his sketchbook and throughout the journey drew what he saw.

He will be posting one drawing every day, Monday-Friday here. There are 23 drawings in total, so follow Tiago's journey through his drawings.

We hope you like the drawings. Leave a comment on his blog and be in a chance to win a signed drawing by Tiago! At the end of August, Tiago will pick the best comment and the winner will get a signed copy of his drawing.

Tiago is certainly an artist and a lover of tourism and nature. To walk a hundred miles and draw so many beautiful pictures is an amazing feat. If Mr Tiago has to embark on another such journey, then in my opinion the gorgeous Scottish highlands would be an ideal destination. The beautiful Scottish highlands deserve to be drawn and presented in the form of pictures or paintings.

Great choice by Travel Magazine.

In this kind of draws, Tiago is one of the best Portuguese illustrators. He can take you inside of his journey. Sometimes you start wondering why real life isn't like his illustrations.

Follow Tiago's drawings, you won't be disappointed. I can assure you that.
