I'm an animator and illustrator from Mexico City.
I went to animation school in Canada for two years from 2007 to 2009. I am a classically trained animator but I specialize in cut-out animation (Flash/Harmony). I also studied 3D art (animation, lighting and modeling) but I haven't had the chance to do it professionally.
After graduating I went back to my country and got a job at Anima Estudios where I worked as a 2D Artist (flash animation, character design, visual development) for 4 years, partaking in projects such as El Chavo Animado, Don Gato la película, El Santos vs. La Tetona Mendoza, Teenage Fairytale Dropouts and Los Guardianes de Oz.
I'm like a 95% self-taught illustrator. Even though I've been drawing from a very early age, I didn't take it seriously until I was already working professionally as an animator. So it was in 2011 when I decided to take my digital painting skills to a whole new level and attended the 4-week Imaginism workshop in Toronto.
Afterwards I became even more obsessed with lighting, value, colour and composition.
As a freelance artist. I've worked on several projects doing animation for short films, feature films and live shows, digital painting tutorials for magazines, comic book covers and characters for advertising.
Besides painting and animating, I love coffee, video games, food, music and watching Netflix religiously.
My work has been featured in Exposé 11 by Ballistic Publishing, and 2dartist mag and Digital Painting Techniques by 3dtotal. I am currently working on my first self-published art book that I successfully crowdfunded.
