I was born in Barcelona in 1974, I work as an industrial designer, and one of my hobbies is digital illustration.
I've always been mad about pin ups, from the elegant ladies that flew through skies on bomber fuselages in Second World War, to current illustrator's provocative creations.
You only have to take a look to this gallery to realize that my references are artists like Olivia de Berardinis, Drew Posada, Ricky Carralero, Boris Vallejo and, of course, Hajime Sorayama, undoubtedly the great master in this field.
This work wants to be a way to introduce my ''daughters''. It shows illustrations made between 2002 to the present, all they are all totally digital pictures. They're not 3D computer generated images, but genuine illustrations executed by means of a graphics tablet, similar to a blackboard, which ''transfers'' the strokes into the drawing software.
This tablet is pressure sensitive ( the more you press on the tablet with the pen, the more ''paint'' is put on the canvas ). This, together with many advantages and possibilities that current software provides, allows me to add textures and effects very difficult to obtain with traditional techniques.
It's only left to me to express my deep and sincere wishes that you enjoy gazing at my babies as much as I enjoyed drawing them. So take a break, sit down comfortably and let them hypnotize you...
