All illustrations you can imagine
My work is primarily inspired by the dark world of H.P. Lovecraft and by horror, gore, fantasy and sci-fi films. I am a complete fan of these genres with over 3,000 films in my collection.
I would like to tell you about my artwork and the journey that led me to become an illustrator. I've been passionate about drawing and comics ever since I was little, and I started creating my own illustrations when I was just a kid. I attended artistic drawing classes during my childhood and learned the different painting techniques, which I improved upon over the years through self-teaching.
I studied Graphic Arts and worked in this sector for twelve years, designing movie posters and expanding my knowledge of digital illustration. At the same time, I worked on commissions for portraits and paintings, exhibitions and designs for album covers, inserts and logos for black and death metal music bands such as Cryfemal, The Art of Blasphemy and Gloom, as well as others.
A personal detail that I can tell you is that I am related to the famous Spanish writer Pedro Antonio de Alarcón, the author of "El Sombrero de Tres Picos" (The Three-Cornered Hat).
