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 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.
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.
Do limits exist in the vectorial graphics?
I think no and I hope that my sketches are a small demonstration of this thought.
