"It was the year of 1984, in the industrial city of Monterrey, México, when I was born.

Drawing was one of my favourite amusements when I was a child, so my parents took me into drawing classes, at the age of 8. It was a short time, but enough to give me the confidence to study Graphic Design some years later.

Sometimes I where I would have ended up if I had dedicated to any of my other interests: music, photography, plants, etc. But at the end of the day, I am pretty sure I would had been wondering exactly the same about illustration, and it's always a joy to think how lucky I am to have such a lovely profession.
