The Usual Five
What inspires you?My biggest source of inspiration is my mind, my childhood, since young I always invented situations, stories, adventures, friends and all that accompanied me for a long time. When I do personal artwork it always shows something from that time. I’m also inspired by experiences, books, music, family, traveling, nature, a bit of everything.
What made you the artist, you are today?The intention to seek a way to tell all the stories that were created in my mind. I was always pretty shy, so I decided to draw them, I want my illustrations to tell these stories.
Favorite artists?I love the work of Theodor G. Seuss, his stories, images and the messages that can be read between lines. I also admire the work of other illustrators like Maurice Sendak and Edward Gorey.
Last thing that stopped your breath?Mingus (my cat) waking up in the morning with a bite and kisses on my nose.
For the youth!Once you find what you love and makes you feel alive, never let it go, hold on to it and enjoy it.
