How I create Visual Metaphors

By Listening, understanding what the others don’t say; then I draw.

I still watch cartoons, play Legos and board games. They keep alive those mindsets I used to have when I was a kid.

Le petit Nicolas (Jean-Jacques Sempé) for his simple line but detailed backgrounds.

¡A mí no me grite! (Quino), because it was the first time I read a comic book that conveyed a message in very few frames and practically no words.

Olle Eksell illustrations, because he made me discover that illustrations and graphic design can be mixed together.

This work is about telling stories through visual metaphors. Nothing creative will come up to your mind if you take things too seriously.
