Caetano Veloso doesn't like it in London

A tiny (again, pocket moleskine) painting inspired by the song London, London, by Brazilian singer Caetano Veloso.  It's about how everything in London is so strange an alien to him; he appreciates the peace and politeness but nothing feels real.

nice illustration... I had the opportunity to see him perform last year and he did this wonderful song. Love the flying saucers in the sky.

Mais comme c'est génial. Ca colle vraiment bien avec la musique... que d'ailleurs je ne connaissais pas il y a de ça 5 minutes!

Merci Emmanuelle :)

Peut etre meme un peu trop littéral mais la chanson est si charmante.
J'espere que tu es tombée sur la version originale. Toi qui as pas trop aimé ton passage là-bas, dis-toi que ce gars-là, Londres le faisait s'ennuyer du Brésil post coup d'état haha.
