So here I am.
Time goes by, projects accumulate, and there is no time to stop and take my own pulse. Spring has been a season of consecration and recognition for me. After a long time working so hard without having the impression of seeing any results, I appreciate everything that happens to me now.
So, what's going on? I won some prizes that inflate my ego. I'm a finalist at the World Illustration Awards, and I won an American Illustration Award, in addition to an honorary mention from 3x3 magazine. We can say that it does not change much my day-to-day, but it's not quite true. I fight every day with its insecurities and uncertainties; so it’s a recognition that gives me the courage to continue. The awards, it makes me understand that despite the doubt, I’m not completely lost. I do things well, for people somewhere who have the legitimacy to say that.
And besides awards, I’m now represented by Humankind. It is not an agency representing illustrators, but rather models, which is currently developing a "talents" branch. And that's why I agreed to join them. Together, we will go elsewhere, surprise by knocking on doors where nobody expects an illustrator to offer their services. And that interests me as an approach.
My professional path brings me closer and closer to a direction that is very personal and intimate to me. I'm creating my own universe, and that's what I want to offer now.
