What is the most unusual request you’ve had?
I don’t remember exactly one very unusual commissioned work, usually people want me to draw the body of a woman.
What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the business?
My advice would be to draw a lot, more than eight hours a day and to be very present on the social media. It’s very important nowadays to show the world what you do.
I have a huge personal project which I will be working with during the next year: an illustrated indie videogame.
What is your dream project?
At this moment my dream is to finish the video game for Playstation4.
What is your favorite museum or gallery?
If you could only bring three things to a deserted island, what would they be?
A pencil, a notebook and my girlfriend 🙂 .
How would you describe your work in 80 characters?
I think that concepts like sensuality related to the female body define my work. And there is always a will to experiment with different mediums and bases, although it is true that I usually work with watercolors and Indian ink, because I like the irregularities of the line that the Indian ink provides; also the color effects caused by watercolours are very beautiful.
