He was interviewed by 3dTotal:
I was born in Morón, Cuba in 1992. When I was 6, my family decided to move to Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands, where I grew up drawing everything I could imagine. Over the years, that habit became an unstoppable force inside me so I made the best decision in my entire life; making art for a living. Nowadays, I consider myself a storyteller as well as an illustrator, because I believe every piece of visual information always contains a narrative within it. If you ask me, every professional illustrator should always aim for storytelling over technique.
