My passion for art starts when my father bought me a comic book

Where do you find inspiration?

I would love to answer this question in a romantic way(from the sea, from the mountain.....)...but I usually take inspiration from internet and from strange people

I'm really in love with the works of Al Hirschfeld, Miguel Covarrubias and Magnus

I usually draw a rough sketch and then I scan it and elaborate it using illustrator, photoshop and a wacom tablet....usually in my own office

How would you describe your work?

A mix of comics, graphic design, tattoo and strange characters
