Ardilla is a personal project. A shortfilm wrote in 2012 that I am currently developing.
The story begins with an accident and the issue of knowing what exactly happened.
On the other hand, a grumpy old man, terribly short-sighted, finds a nosy squirrel which is causing him some trouble.
The story is set in London. I wanted to use the locations that I see everyday to create the environments for the shortfilm.
Illustrated story of the owner of Mac Hotels. These illustrations were done for a convention in Madrid.

studio cut December 2015
Illustrations done for the international magazine Mia Le Journal.
The theme of the issue is ‘Hotel mon amour’ and the illustration explores the intimacy and romance that occur in hotels. I like to play with some narrative in the scenes.
The main character is female and we only guess her partners because of the details in the space around, that way it remains ambiguous and open to interpretation.
