Challenging the stereotype of the Superhero.
I want to make pieces that communicate stories. With the storytelling key elements. That’s where the Superhero concept came to life. I wanted to let people get to know the man behind the mask and tell his story uncensored. My superhero is far from perfect but that doesn't mean he is isn´t good. He's just human. Perfect people is just boring and predictable and who wants that?
