I studied illustration at “Escuela de Artes y Oficios de Oviedo” (School of Arts), although my formation has been majority self-taught.
As a medical illustrator I've also worked for Ediciones Nobel.

I've drawn and wrote comic for several years now. At first my works were published in some free magazines and fancines.
Eventually I begun to develop my work to other levels. Firstable at local magazines ( El Revistín, El Gomeru, AGE).
