For those who can't read spanish, I've translated it for you here:
1. What originally made you want to become a designer / illustrator?
Many women in my family were artists and musicians. My mom drew with me all the time. They never pursued it however as many Spanish women didn't see a future in the arts, and a majority of them became housewives who stayed at home and taught us these little secrets they knew. Art started with my mother. After she saw that I liked to do it a lot and was easily occupied, she pushed me to continue. She bought me art books, comics, how-to-draw manga, anything that I was interested in. Once I was older, I realized that maybe I could really do this in real life. She told me I could do anything.
2. Do you keep a sketchbook? Do the contents typically evolve into your finished work or is it more a collection of loose ideas and doodles?
I have to force myself to keep a sketchbook! I don't really sketch at all. Most of my work is freehand and done on the spot, so what I try to do instead is write down all of my ideas and compile them in a list. When I actually do sketch however, I sketch architecture and nature, things I see while out in the park. It loosens me up. I've only just started doing erotic sketches since people enjoy them and it gives me a chance to practice my figurative and shibari knot skills.
3. I can see a lot of influences on your art, who or what has been the biggest single influence on your way of thinking?
That's a toughie! There are three main artists that my work has taken direction from, but if I had to say that there was a singular influence it would be the Ero Guru art movement. All of my favorite artists have stemmed from that movement and were a huge inspiration to me.
4. What do you enjoy most about your job?
What I enjoy most is traveling and meeting other artists and fans of my work. People who I've never met excited to meet me and discuss my work, listening to what they like about, how it speaks to them. They are normal people like you and me who like the aesthetic . Some are kinky but a majority are just people who are afraid to talk about why they like the elements of my work. It can be a hard thing to explain to those who may not understand or assume that only perverts and people in the fetish community would enjoy this work. I'm happy that I can talk to them and learn from them.
5. Which are your favorite techniques?
In terms of technique, I don't use traditional ones. I paint with flat colors and use strict black linework. It's similar to color by numbers, I fill it all in after I get the lines down.
6. What techniques or materials would you like to explore in the future?
I would love to work on bigger glass pieces or create depth by layering pieces of cut glass on top of each other or even exploring colored glass.
7. The "hiding humor" is a good topic on your drawings, do you think that is a good partner with the sexual art?
I do. Sex can be a very sensitive topic and some things are easier to approach or open up about when expressed with a bit of witty humor. It starts the conversation without giving it such a serious tone right away. It eases people into it and can work better visually. Often times it takes people a good minute to see the gore and violence in my work, they usually see the bright colors and laugh at the situation before taking it all in. I like that.
8. Do you put your own experiencies when you are creating those master pieces?
Many times it evolves from personal experience . When I was young I suffered from night terrors and bad dreams. I was deathly afraid of El Cuco, and would sneak into my parents room and sleep at the foot of their bed. I eventually grew out of it, but those memories stuck with me. Also my first sex partner was emotionally and physically abusive which made relationships harder for me later in life. A lot of my work revolves around characters in their bedrooms. It's a central theme in my work. It's where the majority of my personal scars came from.
9. I have been following your art and i have seen some good projects, so, will we see some comissions and works with brands?
I'm working with a few people at the moment, including brands like Heavy Black and Mishka! Apparel will be coming out in February!
10, What style music do you mostly listen to when you work?
It varies on my mood, but I love to listen to Etta James, Peaches, The Cranberries, Azalea Banks and Portishead while I work . Those are the main ones.
11. Things do you like to do besides drawing?
Biking, watching films and anime, going to concerts, watching The Yankees play, and playing some PS4. Also food....lots of food. Hahahah! I love finding good places to eat on my off time!
12. You have a message for all the lost souls who are reading this interview?
I would say: dreams are real. No matter what it is you want to do in life, everything and anything is possible with hard work. Nothing is easy, it's not meant to be, otherwise everyone would do it. If you want something bad enough, it's up to you to make it happen. Just know it can be achieved.
