Summary

I’m a versatile  Illustrator & Graphic Designer  with experience in print design, traditional and digital illustration, hand-drawn works and graphic artwork.
I've been working for the last 9 years in studios and as a professional freelance, where I can learn by experience the business design world.

I have a sound background in T-shirts designs, as you can see in my protfolio. I was working in Guidaí Studio during 3 years and I learnt everything about T-shirts production system. Also I knew all the print, stamping, impression... technology available in market at that moment (silkscreen, tampography, dye-sublimation, DTG printer, etc).

I define myself as a imaginative and creative person who is willing to work under client's guidelines and/or  adapt to demanding work situations.
Organize, meticolous and able to adapt within a high pressured environment.

My goal is to work in interesting and awesome proyects where I can improve my skills, grow as a graphic artist and able to go out from my comfort zone.
All my experiences were very importants to me. I've learned from my mistakes, from setbacks as well as from sucessess.

I use some free time to get inspired by beautiful things, looking for art trends, listening music... and, also to learn the latest and useful designs programs. Currently I'm learning how to sculpt in 3D  using ZBrush. I must say I love it!.
