Videogame artist and illustrator
Lx, Portugal

Born in Mexico but currently living and working in Portugal, I’m constantly being influenced by a wide range of things, mainly videogames, animation and comics. I focus more on a cartoony colorful style but I can dabble into other styles, which keeps me from getting bored.

While working full time as a game artist since 2012, I've been working on the side as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer since 2006.
