1. What’s your story? Where are you from?

I am from Alicante (Spain), I started drawing when a friend from school came with a Conan-style drawing made by his brother and I wanted to learn how to do that. I already discovered graffiti at the institute and with 14 years I started designing with Microsoft Word and the 3d texts (haha) until I discovered Photoshop and started doing digital art, photography, lettering later I found Illustrator and there I began to develop my art style.
