Can we see a picture of your workspace and/or desktop?
What do you watch/listen to while working?

There's always something playing in background while I work, it can be some food videos like Munchies documentaries (I love Matty Matheson, this series and this one about Vegas) or the Hot Ones, some docs from Vice, skate videos (I mean just look at this dude). Also I listen a lot of audio books: fantasy, science fiction, distopia..things like that.

What have you been working on lately?

Here's the sketch of Joanne The Scammer I'm drawing right now haha.

What work of yours are you most proud of?

This one I like the most at the moment.

What tools do you use in your work?

Wacom tablet, Photoshop, hands, eyes

Can you tell us about your process?

Found these two old process gifs in my archives :)

Any last advice for the folks just starting out?

Just get up every morning and do your thing, try to invent something new, big or small, stealing is for boring people haha.

Favorite file formats?

PSB as source files because lot of my work is bigger than 2gb, and PNG for the previews

What are the best places to see your work?
Whose work do you follow?

Thanks for the interview,
