This is my little corner in the cyberspace where I can share with the rest of the planet what is going on in my world.
I am from Lima, Peru; but I moved a few years ago to sunny England, my new home.
I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator with 18 years of experience; throughout my career I’ve worked in fast paced environments, covering a wide spectrum of design areas that go from concept through to completion. I have a passion for what I do and I am confident I have the knowledge and the skills to help you. I offer to deliver a high standard design within the required time frame at a competitive price.
I have a good eye for detail, once I read: “The devil might be in the details, but so is the heart of a story”, I couldn’t agree more. My favourite subjects are sci-fi and dark, gritty, fantasy. I’ve developed over the years an interesting technique using ball-point pen for drawing and shading. I normally paint my illustrations digitally using a good old Wacom. Though I prefer sketching with pencil first to then scan my artwork into the computer.
I have a blog heavily focused on the Warhammer universe which I love. You can follow my blog if you want to keep updated. On that region of the Immaterium I’m known as Forjador (pronounced: For-ha-door)
My other interests include playing video games (it is a long term addiction of mine), reading (paper books > ebooks) and studying martial arts. Karate, Kendo and Judo are important milestones in my life.
