A LITTLE HISTORY
I was born in 1981 in Los Llanos (La Palma Island, S / C De Tenerife, Canary Islands). Since my childhood, creativity is innate in him, both in music and drawing, choosing the latter.
Fan the world of comics, my illustrations can be the first influences of some of my favourite comic artists as Max, Carlos Gimenez, Moebius, Francisco Ibáñez, Alex Ross, Frank Miller and Iron.
It is from my time at the School of Art, where enriched by an environment of graphic designers and especially one of the best creative Canarian Nano Barbero, when I start to get interested in this world and to grow and develop in the professional field.
Since I ended my studies in 2004 I always I combine my work in different design firms, printers or photo studios with my work freelance or independent manner, thus introducing me to many poster competitions at national level where many times I won first prize and was a finalist.
During 2010/2011 during a Masters in Advertising, Design and Marketing in order not only retrain on those programs most advanced graphic design, but in order to introduce new design areas, such as video editing, 3D , web design, etc.
Throughout my career as a graphic designer and illustrator you can see a clear evolution. As for the graphics, either of logos, posters, packaging, etc. greater professionalism, a refinement of the technique, greater cleaning paths and simpler designs without losing the point of view of originality and the design itself and in relation to the artwork, the management of many highlights is observed using styles, from the realistic to the more abstract, and even a mixture of both to get a more original and exclusive artwork.
Now my goal is to develop as a designer since also in other fields such as web design, 3D and new projects that enrich me as a professional and pose a challenge.
