Where are you from and where did you study?
I was born in Peru, I’ve been living in Argentina for four years and I´m studying in the Buenos Aires University.
How do you meet the graphic design and the illustration?
When I was at school I remember having a vocational orientation test, in that time I wanted to study fine arts, and the test result was accountability, fine arts and graphic design, I was curious to know how a graphic designer works, in fact I had a little knowledge about that, I started to find out, and I loved it!! Once I started the career I met the illustration and I fell in love with it again!!
Who or what inspired you most?
This is a BIG question, there are many things that inspire me, nature, travel, everyday life, people, my environment. In the list of who inspires me is Hayao Miyazaki, Rebecca Sugar, I love her!!!!, Marjane Satrapi, Yuri Norstéines he is a great animator!! And many more. Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon were the channels that marked my childhood completely and still are.
What are you working on or what you last worked on?
My last work was an illustration for the Mila´s project and at the same time I did another project for a Non-Profit
Do you have a personal project?
Yes, I have several projects that are dancing in my head, I´m starting to do animated gifs with educational content, using historical topic, science, etc. maybe later I´ll start to make long duration educational videos.
What’s the most valuable piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice that I´ve received is to not be afraid of anything, you have to take risks and work hard if you want to achieve your goals, if you already fulfilled your goal then trace another, you never have to settle, you always have to be in constant activity.
