My Bio
Hi there!

Let me introduce myself: My name is Angel Saquero, although I'm also known as Saqman, a nickname I started to use when I began in the business of tshirts designing. Now my friends call me Angel or Saqman interchangeably, so you can call me as you prefer.

Looking back over the years, I must admit that there is no image of myself as a boy without a pencil and a paper. I used to invest all my spare time drawing on my desk... Actually, I spent more time drawing than playing with toys. And, when I wasn't sketching, I really enjoyed reading comic books and graphic novels.

I grew up loving (and trying to learn from) the great American comic-book artists, such as Harold Foster, Alex Raymond, Steve Ditko, John Buscema, John Byrne, Neal Adams, John Romita... My universe was plenty of superheros fighting to save the planet or crossing the galaxy and parallel universes.

However, the main artistic references I got from my environment were the European comics, such as Tintin, Asterix, Lucky Luke, Spirou or the Smurfs. And, especially, Spanish comics (known here as “tebeos”), whih taught me the basis of scriptting, sketching or inking. That's why I have special fondness for Francisco Ibáñez, who created the most beloved characters of my early childhood: Mortadelo y Filemón.

Additionally, I'm a huge moviegoer. My father took me to the cinema of my neighborhood to watch Star Wars on big screen when I was three, and somehow it made a deep impression on me. That film marked my life in many ways, and since then I've been a huge fan of the saga, as well as other 70-80's movies such as Alien, Back to the Future, Superman, The Goonies, Indiana Jones, etc. That is why most of my artwork is closely related to that era, which represents absolute happiness to me.

At present there are many topics I love and from which I get ideas. And, off the top of my head, I can enumerate Studio Ghibli movies, Doctor Who, Evil Dead, The Name of the Wind, Game of Thrones, LOTR, Stranger Things, etc.

As you can see from my portfolio, I've been working on the tshirts designing for a while. I'm really glad to belong to this artist community. I hope you enjoy my work here, and thank you for visiting my site!

awewsome gallery, i also like Studio Ghibli and Tim Burton.

I don't think ive ever loved an artist's style more than i love yours! Do you do commissions?

Thank you so much for your words. It's heartwarming to read opinions like yours. They encourage me to go on drawing. Sorry, but I usually do not take commissions.

Thank you for replying! If you're ever interested let me know. I'd really like to get a picture of my disabled child that passed away dancing because she wasn't able to. ❤

Sorry for your lost. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
