What is the most unusual request you’ve had?

The truth is that all projects have a point of ‘unusual’ or special, above all when they are more personal, like families that I don’t know, to give you an example.

What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the business?

Work hard and be constant. Getting what you want is difficult but not impossible.

What’s next?

At the moment I am working on several projects: some illustrations for a French clothing brand, personal commissions, and the best one, a children’s book!

What is your dream project?

Right now, I would say to live with illustration is my dream. I do what I like and I enjoy it every day. I would like to be able to continue like this, naturally.

What is your favorite museum or gallery?

My own gallery, El Diluvio Universal in Barcelona!

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

My great-grandmother, Elisa.

How would you describe your work in 80 characters?

Someone once told me that my drawings were simple and full of irony. And that they are simple contemplations evoking situations we all know and have lived through.

Wacom or Pencil? First I use ballpoint and if my work is to be published online, I finish some details with Wacom.

Robert de Niro or Al Pacino? Robert de Niro.

Gaudí or Dalí? Buff… I don’t know! Both are surrealist men… one in architecture and the other in visual arts… I don’t know, I prefer other artists.

Paris or New York? A little bit of each. I can’t decide on it, I love both cities.

Cava or Red Wine? Red wine.

Sea or Mountain? A mountain with the sea around it.
