I’m an illustrator from Spain obsessed with icons and movies.

I was born in Seville, Spain. Since I was a child I was obsessed with drawing and painting. So much that, although it was something my parents didn’t think was easy to make a living off, they encouraged it because I had such a passion for it.

I studied Fine Arts specializing in Graphic Design here in Seville. When I finished college I got a scholarship at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, and studied there for a year. When I came back from the States I began working as a graphic designer and art director in a publicity studio, and I’ve been working there ever since. My illustration work is something I’ve been developing these last years. But only on personal projects and on subjects of high interest to me, like my recent contribution with a series of illustrations and the cover to the Encyclopedia Madonnica published by Matthew Rettenmund. (*Matthew Rettenmund is a writer, editor and blogger who lives in NYC. His book, “Encyclopedia Madonnica”, is considered the bible on all things Madonna)

Although my day job is fulfilling and requires creativity on my part, I sometimes miss the sheer pleasure of drawing. The illustration software is so sophisticated now (Adobe Illustrator) that it allows me to create images very close to the organic ones, giving it a distinctive touch, close to airbrush. The process, though digital, remains the same, beginning with the blank canvas, but replacing the pencil or brush with the mouse. In those personal projects I wanted to blend my two passions, graphic art and movie stars. So I began doing these movie portraits that I shared only with friends, just for fun.

A while ago I started sharing my illustrations online. Now I have a facebook and Instagram art pages with many followers. It’s been a great journey, being able to share my work with fellow fans all over the world and has brought me the opportunity to get in touch with them and received their wonderful feedback. As an artist that is so gratifying. I couldn’t ask for more.
