I am a cartoonist and illustrator based in Tokyo.

I’ve been a professional illustrator since 2005, when I graduated in Fine Arts from the Complutense University in Spain, including a semester in the Académie royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Belgium.

My graphic novel “I Kill Giants”, co-created with Joe Kelly, has been adapted as a movie directed by Anders Walter.

 

東京在住の漫画家・イラストレターです。

スペインのコンプルテンセ大学に在学中の一学期はベルギー、ブリュッセルのベルギー国立美大で美術に留学し、2005年デビューしました。

最近では、ジョー・ケリー氏と作製したグラフィックノベル “I Kill Giants” をアンダーズ・ウオルター監督のもとで映画化されました。
