The beginnings of “The Surfing Luchador”

What stands out for you as one of y our favourite career highlights so far? I think the moment I made my first complete illustrated book, in 2013, The “Libro de los valores” represent the moment I developed my real style for working, and I felt comfortable to show the way I feel the movement in the illustrations, and maybe the moment i started my work with pencil illustrators too 🙂

What are you currently working on? I just finished a illustrated book about the Life of Arquímedes and on December i will start my first Graphic Novel “El viaje” (the trip).

How’d you get started as an artist? A little before I finished my studies in the National Art School I was already working in some illustration projects.

Who or what influences your art? I think everything influences me: travels, music, books, movies, my family, my friends and other artist, the experiences of my life.

What is your creative process like? Well, in my process, I first read all the project and then look for some references like photos or books. If I feel inspired, I start working with the rough sketches in my little journal.

How do you feel our Art + Brewing initiative can benefit emerging artists? I believe this initiative will promote and show their talent around the globe, the opportunity to be in touch with other artist is very inspirational.
