Digital media mostly, my art style is a combination of cartoon, cubism and surrealism.

To represent a story or a feeling, with allegories and symbolisms. It has a lot to do with the “self” and unconsciousness and consciousness.

Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
My first work (at least on the internet) is HERE.
I used photoshop cs3. My style was still developing, I wanted to represent a Mexican holiday using traditional houses and decorations, even skeleton mariachis on the left.
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
Everything! I mean I think the style is the same but the quality and the confidence on the pieces shows a lot more, I have more confidence using colors and creating an atmosphere.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
It’s some sort of therapy, when I draw i feel much better, but it’s not really escaping, but figuring out what I really feel or what motivates me, or what I want, it is simply trying to comunicate an idea.
