I’ve that conviction and I really love to do what I’m doing. It’s not easy ’cause I don’t have a normal working shedule, I work almost seven days a week, sometimes during holydays, and as I don’t have an agent or representant I also must to negotiate, lear about legal stuff, etc. But I’m not complaining, I’m very happy to make a living from what I love! - Interview for Colorvision Magazine
comics are the big influence in my work, mainly underground comix. As I already said I really love the work of artists like Robert Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Loustal, Mattotti, Moebius, Harriman, Serge Clerc, Hergé, Joost Swarte, Hayao Miyazaki, and the works of many Argentine colleagues. In general I like comics from individuals, not the ones originated into the American industry that produces works in series, as if they were shoes, I love those personal and crafted works, like the exquisite “RAW” Mag from Art Spiegelman, and also I love a lot of Childrens picture books! - Interview for Colorvision Magazine
