I've been interested in Computerized Graphics since mid-80s when I applied more to
the technical angle (study of algorithms to remove hidden lines, tridimensional graphics of math functions, Ray Tracing etc.) than the artistic one being a University student of Physics.
Slowly, slowly the artistic aspect prevailed when in 1994 I decided to apply to bi-dimensional graphics because of the very high prices of software an
hardware necessary to get good results in 3D graphics.
My attention was attracted by Corel Draw 3.0 program which I bought with a PC assembled by myself (386 20 Mhz and 4 Mb Ram).
My education is a combination of classical studies and technical ones (faculty of Physics at the University). Unfortunately in my town there are no
courses where one can learn how to draw with the computer so I relied on my power of observation and capacity of synthesis derived from my studies, my experience as photographer, my love of art, and humbly admiring
masterpieces realized with many techniques by other illustrators and artists.
I make my sketches as personal projects ( the comic "the dolly dream", "Friends of whole") or to order, but over all I make them to
When I wish to obtain a drawing with certain effects, I start to elaborate it and I turn it over and over in my mind until I manage to get the effect I
wanted. I must say that every sketch for me is like working out refining my graphics capability.
