Summary

I started my career as an airbrushing and comic artist. My formation in fine arts earned me national comic awards (2nd place Drakul 2007: Moscas y Dragones), my paintings were also featured in films and television. But ultimately fell in love with the initial creative stages of design and decided to study concept art & game developing in the Superior School of Professional Drawing. As a designer I strive to bring both realism and awe into my work, paying attention to every detail in order to achieve a solid result.

I'm currenttly available for both freelance work and in-house opportunities
