When you first started out, did you have a plan for your career or did it develop organically?
I was taught in my country that there definitely wasn’t a future in art, but I didn't care. I always knew that if there was any chance to work in art or movies, I would take it. In Spain, you need to start choosing your career path at around 15 or 16 years old, and I choose art without any doubt. I was ready to do any kind of art for a living. I didn't know being an illustrator or concept artist was an option back then, so in my mind, I was picturing myself pursuing fine arts.
Is there anything you struggle with now as an artist?
The only struggle I have is actually spending less time on my personal work in order to go out, but in general, I'm very comfortable with my life situation.
You live in the UK. Is it difficult to be away from home, or do you like that your job lets you travel? The nature of this industry is very migratory, so does the location of a job offer affect your decision to accept it?
I’ve lived in the UK for almost 3 years now. Whether I travel around or not depends on the job or the project, but since I'm a freelancer, I prefer to travel on my own and work from my own office. However, you never know what opportunities and adventures await you if you step outside of your shell.
