Do you have any art school teachings or formal training?
I have a university degree in graphic design. I learn color's theory and the use of the airbrush, but never illustration nor drawing of the human figure. I learn everything of self-taught way. Most of my technique was the result of copy many Sorayama's paintings. I follow the step-by-step way to make paintings, in the end of Sorayama's books.
How long have you been painting?
My mother says that I draw since I was born. I believe in her because she conserves many drawings of me when I was I baby. I start draw nude womens since 9 years old, the very first time I own (rob from my uncle) a playboy magazine. I draw pin-up from 1993 that is the year when I learn to use airbrush.
Were you interested in art when you were growing up as a kid in Mexico? In 1977 I was 8 years old. I don't draw too much in that age. My "principal power" was molding plasticine. I do all the cartoon characters in plasticine. One night my mother take me to the cinema to see one movie called "Star Wars". When we are out of the cinema I was shook of the emotion. I was seen the most impressive movie in my short life. I arrives at my house running and my mother told me go to sleep, but I did not listen to her. I take the plasticine and start doing all the movie characters r2-d2, darth vader, x-wing, death star... I tried to make it fast, I was afraid to forget them all, but I was not quickly enough. So in my desperation I uses my "secondary power" and I start to draw. I draw too fast all night. I don't sleep that night. Star Wars make me the artist who I am now.
Are you the only artist in your family? No, my mother knows how to paint also - not professionally, but she does well. Why do you choose women as your subjects? Woman is the most beautiful thing ever created. Not landscapes, not rainbows, not stars, not flowers. Womens are more beautiful than anything.
Who is your favorite woman to paint?
