Details Illustrator
  My mother studied at the school of Bellas Artes and was an Art Professor, and so from the time that I was just a boy art was an important part of my education. She even taught a class for children at our house which made it even more fun. I studied graphic design in the hopes of finding a major that would land me work that had something to do with my interests. Over time, and because of the labor market, I specialized in interactive web design. I worked a few years for Cartoon Network and for the last five years I have been the creative manager for Fox Latin America. I always buy smooth paper notebooks and I draw everywhere, in the middle of meetings, while drinking a coffee, or at home where I can concentrate on more personal projects. I doodle a lot and always save the things that seem like an interesting idea to develop. In 2010 I started my blog, and started publishing drawings, and experimenting more with watercolor, ink and acrylics. I started to receive a lot of invitations to participate in collective shows like at Puma Urban Art, Tecnopolis, Implosion #1 and Campamento, and have been asked to provide illustrations publications overseas. That really motivates me to continue to experiment and fantasize. I wish I had more time for experimentation, time to take classes, to have a more solid artistic education. Since I am a designer and I work in digital media, I like for my draws to be more "analog", I like doing things manually, with imperfections and stains. I like things that are satirical and grotesque. I draw a lot of animals and people and try to find the absurdness in things.
