In a brief pause between the acts, this old clown lets us have a glimpse of his sense of loss, with a tender melancholy.

En un breve descanso entre dos actos, este viejo payaso deja asomar un sentido de derrota, envuelto en suave melancolía.

I am a Spanish illustrator and painter and I have worked as a graphic designer for many years.
I often discover my inspiration in some dream, or a fleeting impression lost in my memory.
My work has also been much connected to the written word, and the rich and suggestive world of tales and stories.
I am specially attracted to portraying human beings, with an emphasis on character and attitude, and their relationship to their surroundings.
