Which creators are inspirations to you?
Is a bit hard to choose someone, my first inspiration to do comics was The Eternauta, a comic book made here in Argentina. Also, Jim Lee from X-men was my biggest inspiration to draw comics with a little bit of Joe Madureira and Frank Cho.

What is your favorite part of drawing?
I love everything I do in terms of comics, but I emphasize that my favorite part is creating new characters. I am inspired to create their personalities and expressions and then see them in action through the panels.

Why comics?
I’m just amazed by the world of comics. The stories are so original, the drawings are colorful and just the ability to tell a story with pictures. It is everything that attracted me since childhood. It is not just a hobby it is a passion.

Favorite comic of all time?
I must chose just one? I enjoy 3, The Eternauta, The return of the Dark Knight and Kingdom Come.

Favorite comic movie of all time? worse of all time?
Each movie that I saw based on comic books gave me great joy, but one of the best was The Watchman.

Worst comic movie?
Elektra

Do you listen to music, watch a certain show or are you in silence when you draw?
I listen music all the time, my preference is Heavy Metal. This music accelerates my art to do more pages…which I need sometimes.
