H: How long have you been illustrating, how'd you get into it?
I started drawing this year. For two years I couldn't made myself even take a pencil after studying in the University for 6 years. Then I found flickr and it inspired me to do more than photos.

Who and what inspires you? why?
A lot of guys on flickr, they show you result along with process, you are involved into it. Also I love Rothko, Mondrian, Malevich, Bacon, Bauhaus…

Any artist that you would like to recommend?

What are you working on at the moment?
I'm into creating corporate identity elements for my favourite client, she allows me to do whatever I want to.

H: ¿Cuánto tiempo llevas ilustrando y cómo empezaste?
Empecé a dibujar este año. Por dos años no podría haber cogido un bolígrafo después de 6 años en la universidad. Entonces descubrí el flickr y me inspiró a hacer algo más que fotos.

¿Quién y qué te inspira? ¿Por qué?
Mucha de la gente del flickr que te muestran aparte del trabajo final también el proceso. También me encantan Rothko, Mondrian, Malevich, Bacon, Bauhaus…

¿Algún artista que quieras recomendarnos?
Sara Fanelli, n8w y Clemen Shabicht.

¿En qué estás trabajando últimamente?
Creando la imagen corporativa para mi cliente preferido. Ella me permite hacer lo que quiero.
