WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am a freelance illustrator and art director. I work for music bands developing CD cover artworks and packaging, as well as other editorial fields such as book covers and some advertising.
I’m currently developing the creative director role on the international artistic collective Hysterical Minds.
WHY ARE YOU DOING IT?
Because this is my passion, my drug, what I always wanted to do even before my brain started the engine. It was a dream and now it’s my lifestyle.
And also because it works as the leitmotif of my life, serving me with the purpose on showing the world through my mind and expressing my feelings, as well as some of my political ideas. Art is communication, and I’m a natural born-communicator… or so I think!
WHAT / WHO INFLUENCES YOU?
Everyday life and nature as the two biggest sources of inspiration. On the hand of looking for artistic references, I’m not very well aware of it, but I guess that some of the names we can take into consideration are Dave Mckean, Travis Smith, David Lynch or Magritte.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?
To keep a lifestyle out of what I love to do. My goal was already achieved, though, so now there’s just room for expanding my abilities and keeping this running, allowing me to keep on paying the bills!
