“I Can’t Believe That You’re In Love With Me”
 Acuarela y digital / Watercolor and digital
30 x 42 cm / 11,7″ x 16.4″ inches
What inspired you to make art: My main inspiration is always music. Sometimes also pictures or situations but mainly music, that’s why all the illustrations are named after a song; so you can recognize the theme I was listening while I was painting each one.

“Stars Fell On Alabama”
Acuarela / Watercolor
24 x 30 cm / 9,4″ x 11,7″ inches
What is your medium: It depends. I usually go for traditional, mostly watercolour and once in a while acrylic, but some of my works are also digital. This illustrations are almost all of them part of my end of degree project, which I did when I was just starting to dance and I worked with a lot of pictures from actual lindy hop dancers, lended to me by Nuria Aguade, also a lindy hopper. It was a great way to understand all the movements so the drawings could look more alive.


Anything else you’d like me/the readers to know about your art? Whenever I’m working I always like to think that my illustrations have a heart, that you can feel the same looking at them than me when I’m painting them.
