Sueños de Papel Part 2

"Sueños de Papel" is a comic project started in the year 2010, the summer I left design university to follow full-time art studies. The thought that drove me the most to make the decision, was the fact that I had to fight for my dreams- as cliché and corny that might sound. What if one day I woke up with my whole life almost gone, only to realise I had never fought to achieve what I truly wanted? "Sueños de Papel" is about that feeling, about being in a life-turning point.

It was my first proper comic, and the first version can be found in this entry ( The first version was submitted for a local contest but it didn´t win. The more recent version (posted here) was submited for another contest in 2012. But it didn´t win either. That news were hard to swallow, but I´ve learned to let go of that bitterness. I think it`s important, to learn when things just don´t work and move on. And I´m not just talking about comics, it can be applied to any aspect of your life . You stand up again, and try. You fail. Try again. And again. There is always something new to create .

Chapter 1 of the second version of "Sueños de Papel"

CD cover

Front cover

This a a cd cover for Maafaka, a new rap band of a high school friend. The making
of the cover was quite challenging, since I had to step out of my comfort zone, but overall I am pleased with the designs, and glad to have finally had the opportunity to work in a cd cover. (Something I have always wanted to do). Here is the link to their facebook site, so you can download the CD or buy it!
