I am an illustrator and also a skilled fine artist proficient in 2-D animation and sequential arts. In 2005, I formed Calavera Comics, a comic book company, with some colleagues from school. Besides comics and illustration, I am also experienced with audio and video editing, graphic design, as well as printing. Some of my works include: music flyers for groups such as Mastodon and Cage, concept art and storyboards for the upcoming “Ultimo Dragon” movie, plus my own comic series “Rudo” and “Pistolero”. Currently, I reside in Tampa Florida, and have a BFA degree in Media Arts & Animation from the Art Institute of Tampa.
