Illustration and editorial illustration
Various illustrations and editorial illustrations for various print and digital media, such as newspapers, magazines, books and websites.
Portraits and caricatures
I have always liked to draw people of all kinds. Celebrities, friends or people from the street. In this case they are all known characters, but approached from different perspectives of style. Some of them are represented in an almost hyperrealistic way and others in a more cartoonish way, either by drawing or by the color palette I always try to capture the essence of the character and if it is the case interpret the tone of the text that accompanies it.
Wellcome Collection Museum
The Wellcome Collection is a museum and bookshop located on Euston Road in central London that combines science, art and medicine.
This series of illustrations are from an essay published in six chapters on the museum's website. Written by journalist and writer Lucia Osborne-Crowley, the essay explores shame as one of the most overwhelming emotions we can experience, and one that has been little talked about.

During the first years of my apprenticeship I was fortunate to be able to attend the studio of Alfredo Zalce, one of the greatest Mexican muralists of the second half of the 20th century. One of the greatest Mexican muralists of the second half of the 20th century. Master Zalce at that time was already very old but he was still active making large format works and taking the time to teach young students like me.
Thus, mural painting has always been an important part of my production. Later I was fascinated and influenced by street graffiti and street art. This small portfolio of mural painting is a mix of techniques and influences learned over the years applied mainly to branding and brand experience.
