I spent 5 years studying graphic design in Havana from 2010 to 2015, and during those years it never went through my mind to become an illustrator. Actually, what I enjoyed doing at that time was to design and work with typography. Although my diploma project and supposed attempt at specialization was typographic I always carried wherever I went a notebook where I made drawings and sketches of things that intrigued me or that simply worried me about my surroundings. Without realizing it, those first drawings became my first illustrations.
It wasn't until 2016, that I got my first client exclusively to work as an illustrator. It was the first time I saw myself illustrating an entire news magazine. After that experience I received calls from independent journalists and outstanding digital newspapers. That year I knew what I wanted to do in my life was to illustrate.
