"Pablo grew up in Buenos Aires, where he is still currently residing. When he was 7 years old, Pablo’s uncle, Hergé gave him his first Tintin album as a present, still his greatest influence! He is a self-taught illustrator who also studied Architecture for a short time - he decided to quit when he realized that his buildings would crack down and that what he really wanted to do was to draw.
Besides Hergé, Pablo’s main influences include all graphics, comics, posters and designs from the 1930’s to the 1950’s and so he describes his work as vintage and retro in style. Pablo usually first draws his illustrations with pencil and paper and then colours them digitally afterwards. His illustrations for books and magazines have been published in Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Argentina. Besides drawing, Pablo’s hobbies include rowing in the delta near Buenos Aires and listening to old LPs on his record player."
