100% Mexican metalhead, classic prog lover, international cuisine fearless explorer, avid traveler and virtuosic air-drummer who’s aim is to make a living out of professional illustration from his den in Guadalajara city. A fan of many artists, let’s just say that some of his very favorites in music and beyond include Pink Floyd, Judas Priest, Agalloch, Amon Amarth, Depeche Mode, Alphonse Mucha, Gustave Doré, H.R. Giger, Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft, J. R. R. Tolkien, Guillermo del Toro, Quentin Tarantino, Studio Ghibli amongst zillion others. Loves to meet people from around the world, and to discover METAL from around the world as well. Not that he loves it all, but a good majority. What he searches in music (and art in general) is passion, honesty and emotion above everything else. While he sets up a new illustration site or blog this 2013, you can visit his DeviantArt gallery ( with old illustrations, drawings and paintings.
