Is drawing/sketching a very important part of your life?
Mar 27, 7:18AM EDT0

A lot, the life is like drawing, first we have to make the sketch and then do the final art, for me it's interconnected

Where according to you is the relationship between the artist and his art?
Mar 27, 1:41AM EDT0

I see art in everything around me, i see from another perspective that i cannot explain, i believe i was born for it. I never had lessons, i learn everything myself, my connection with art goes beyond what i know

How do you advertise your work besides Instagram?

Is there any particular reason why you chose pictures of Harley Quinn and Deadpool? Are those two characters that have inspired you as an artist?
Mar 26, 5:45PM EDT0

I aways  look for characters that i admire, but few i like, more inspirational for me is to draw new things, learn new things

What do you think are the qualities that define an artist?
Mar 26, 1:21PM EDT0

Creativity, discipline, willpower and love for art

Mar 27, 4:38AM EDT0
You focus very prominently on faces in your work; is that because you find them easier to draw than environments, or do you find it a stimulating challenge?
Mar 26, 9:59AM EDT0

I believe it's because of the challenge, i like difficult drawings, since i feel able  to achieve it

Mar 27, 4:45AM EDT0

Everything is art, we needs only redirect to correct public. Yes i embrace 

Mar 22, 8:48PM EDT0
Are you learning any new type of drawing? If so, what’s it? And, how are you learning? Does self-learning work in the drawing?
Mar 22, 5:00PM EDT0

I am constantly trying to learn something.._ currently my style, when it a comes to a single technique , i use gouache and water color, pens, markers, colored pencils._. I'm learning buildings and perspective, i will need a lot in comics creations

Mar 22, 7:16PM EDT0
Do you always intend to give your work its own unique aesthetic, or do you intend to adjust your style completely depending upon the commission?
Mar 22, 3:31PM EDT0

I aways adjust to my style to give a unique characteristic

Mar 22, 6:41PM EDT0
Do you feel your gender has been an advantage or disadvantage within the comic book world?
Mar 22, 12:22PM EDT0

It has been an advantage, we are in generation that the public that likes this  genre only grows due to the films

Mar 22, 2:31PM EDT0
How many drawings will you do in a day or week? Do you follow any particular schedules for this?
Mar 22, 9:20AM EDT0

Yes i have a particular goal of 1 a day, but if i deprive myself of the world i can do 3 or 4 arts a day, depending on the difficulty of the drawings and details, i confess to being certain times stressful so reduce to 1 a day to have time with family and friends

Mar 22, 9:38AM EDT0
You have mentioned you want to work for companies like Marvel and DC. Have you tried approaching them already? If not, what steps are you making towards it?
Mar 22, 7:25AM EDT0

I once searched, but on the website said that they would find us in two ways: by indication of another artist who already works for them  or publishing the arts daily until popular, i do not know where i could gain attention from them
