long have you been working professionally in comics?

on, besides comics?
I’m an internet creative director, I do
story boards for movies, commercials and feature
films, concept design for videogames, publicity
illustrator. Depends on the opportunities that come
about how you broke into the business --was it easy?
It was easy, my first work was Paranoia
for Malibu, from then on many good jobs start
My best work was at the same time, a
defeat, because it was never published due to some
internal problems at Marvel. It was Wraitheart,
a hero created by Clive Barker, sensational.
Another great unpublished work, was The
great and secret show, also from Clive Barker.
The publisher that was doing this project went

artistic activities; my father was a comics fan.

favourite working place.
job are you the proudest of? My greatest prides are a lot, above all the
already mentioned works I did with Clive Barker, a
special note to the short story “How Spoilers
Bleed”, published by Eclipse.
The worst, I wouldn’t say embarrassing,
was Buffy, since I thought the scripts were too
boring, it was a torture doing this book.
are you currently drawing?
I’m working on samples for several
projects, actually trying to find my way back in a
business that has changed much since I wandered away

kids, Alexandre and Natalia, who are 23 and 22 years

work with it.

Every comics artist suffers from the same
problem, the indiscriminate use of weekends for work.

sum of all that I love doing as a professional –
create, create, create.

is the interest in comics where you live?

I’ve written several and published them.
an average day in your life like?
I like to start working early, around 8:00.
Regular routine… I always try not to accumulate work
so that I can have nights and weekends free.

deadlines and meetings, since I do several different
things, as I said.
