I enjoy drawing people's faces, the ones I know and the ones I don't. The clear and wide fields of my country, Argentina. I decided to be an illustrator by the mid 90s, at that time I used to drive a Truck. I didn't have to think it twice, it was that or music, and I chose illustration.

This job has two best parts: the first is the moment when you start to draw and the other is when the work's done. The hardest part is, no doubt, the process itself. I suffer, sweat and despair while I work.

I worked as an assistant for Lucho Olivera and Horacio Lalia doing comic books and as an illustrator doing stuff for esoteric publishing houses. Now, I work in the studio we founded with my partners of La Productora, doing comic books and illustrations for many countries.

When I work, ideas don't exist, it's only the spiritual and mind struggle to open a channel between what exists and what just doesn't.

I'm about to be a father soon and I think a lot in what things I'd like my kid to read, see and know. I won't induce him directly, but I'll put in the lowest part of the book shelf at home some books from Windsor McCay, Hugo Pratt, Bill Waterson, Moebius, Paul Pope, Jim Woodring, Richard Corben, Quino and Oesterheld, the best writer in the world.
