Since child, I had in my soul an uncontrollable attraction for dark and macabre things. The books of Edgar Allan Poe and Horacio Quiroga and the illustrations of Gustav Doré marked my life forever. Later, my discovery of the art work by Edward Gorey, Tim Burton and Ann Rice, they filled my head of images and ambiences, to my taste and to seem, perfect for me.
It is strange that generally I dress in orange colors and my friends are in general happy and extrovert people. My parents since I remember, complain for having a rare and different child.
I have realized movies, music and comics about vampires, monsters , fears and fantasies that the majority of the people thinks " dark " and "bad taste". For me, this themes are always an inexhaustible source of inspiration and beauty. That's why, it is not rare that my work is full of influences of Burton, Gorey, Sopor Aeternus and Marilyn Manson. I believe that I see all this with the look of a child who does not stop marvelling for the unknown and strange things.
Now, it is a pleasure for me, to show my most recent work as illustrator. Doing a small homage to all my influences and my heroes. To my fears and my happy moments. Graphical Medicine For Twisted Souls, is my prescription for all the people like me. People who enjoy the corners without light and the rainy nights full of shadows.
I work on my studio in Guadalajara city (Mexico). Is a very calm place and I like to work under the warm yellow light. No windows on my studio and is full of little gifts and souvenirs from a lot of places and a lot of peoples.
I like the comics and animations about strange and weird people and I love the old mexican movies in B&W and the silent german movies. My favorite movies are EL ESQUELETO DE LA SEÑORA MORALES and ED WOOD.
