How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style, is full of color. An imaginary world full of organic and geometric shapes. A mix of chaos and order, structures and diagonals. A world where the typography are the best friend of the triangles, squares and circles.
When you were a child, did you want to become an illustrator?
No, I wanted to be architect! But I'd always be fighting with the mathematics and physics so when I discovered the graphic design I fell in love.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
From my dreams, the galaxies and stars, the love and my lovely girl, the books, the music and all that blows my eyes.
Could you describe your working process?
I love to investigate at internet, do a huge research, then do a couple of drafts and a list of words to have a basement. And for last, select the best way to create the imaginary world that I have in mind and then make a couple of drafts with this technique.
What would be the ideal working setup for you?
I think that in this moment I have all that I want. A full time work at Punga Visual Consorcio with a lot of great talents that enjoy, and then my free space where I do what I want, like I want and when I want.
What do you love the most about your life as an illustrator?
I really don't considerate myself like an illustrator... I love to play and manipulate digital and visual images to create what I have in my mind, but I'm and designer and if I choose something that I love the most, I choose the possibility of be playing all the time. I'm lucky to do what I love to do.
If you had to do something totally different for living, what would it be?
I will die maybe... No no, maybe to have a little restaurant with homemade food. I love to cook!
What kind of music do you listen while working?
My favourites bands! And they are, Radiohead, Muse, QOTSA, Foofighters, Coldplay and a local singer, Gustavo Cerati.
If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
I need to know Machu Picchu, the Bauhaus, Barcelona and the MOMA.
Who are you all-time favorite artists?
In the beginning of my career my favorites artists were David Carson, Herb Lubalin, Rodchenko, Paula Scher and Paul Rand. They always will be my basement. Now I adore the work of studios like NonFormat, Hort, OneLab and SerialCut.
Who has been the most inspiring non-artistic person for you?
My father and mother, they taught me everything.
What is the most bizarre dream you ever had?
I don't know I always have the sames... I'm always flying around at lovely places! The worst is when I fall and then wake up.
If you could meet any great name from known human history, who would it be?
Maybe Salvador Dali... I don't know how he had this great mind!
