I'm an independent Art Director and Illustrator. I was born in Barcelona, risen in Murcia and currently I live on the spanish capital, Madrid. I have got more than a decade of expertise on my back, illustrating and designing for music bands and publishing houses.
Besides for the passion I feel for all things creative (that gets shaded by surrealism, fantasy, sometimes political messages, and other, dark atmospheres), that I develop the freelance-way, I employ myself in other full-time activities, such as directing the international artistic collective Hysterical Minds, as well as writting from time to time, advanced user tutorials for Adobe Photoshop over at PSD Tuts from the Envato Network.
My main artistic capacities, apart from an eye for mathematical composition, color psychology and visual narratives, are photo manipulation and digital painting, that I usually combine to create my own distinctive aesthetic mark.
I'm open for all kind of commissions that fall inside the direction and production of illustration and design, and specially interested if it's for music bands or publishing houses!
