Hello friends who joined me on deviantart, I have some news for you!
I am currently based in Colorado, working as a freelance illustrator, making my comics and giving talks and workshops about comics and LGBT representation in comics at ComicCons and Universities around the US! If you want to come see me at one of them, go to to check dates and cities I'll be in!

But the great news is actually about my comics series Out&About! If you want to read them in a very practical way, on your computer or phone, the series is now on Tapastic! Just go to and subscribe to the series. Every time I post a new strip, you will receive a notification on the app and you can read it from anywhere you are. Please subscribe and share with your friends. I work very hard to create entertaining comics strips and also bring awareness to LGBT persons and issues we face in life, related or not to our sexuality. Always, of course, in a fun and lighthearted way!
I hope I see you on Tapastic!
Have a great day! :)

I got a really nice surprise today. My piece Queen - The Miracle (…) got a DD! Today was going to be Freddie Mercury´s 65th birthday. Although I did this piece 6 YEARS ago (OMG) the good thing is that I did this piece with my friend :iconjorgepacker: , so we both got a DD.

To celebrate Freddie Mercury´s legacy in music and his birthday, I did this new piece as a homage to him:…

Hey Everyone!

Let me get started talking about my The only Apple deviation (… ). It´s an illustration I did for the Greek magazine called Go Natural.
Two months ago, :iconblasianonna: suggested it for a Daily Deviation and Deviant Art made this surprise for me.

Also, I made a video about the creation process of this piece. You can watch the creation process from the pencil sketch to to final vector illustration.

Watch the extended version here (21min):
Watch the short version here (10 min):…

I hope you like it.

Let me tell you about my prints. I deactivaded them for I while. Now, the only prints I have available are The only apple and The cat and the Moon pieces:

10 things about my art

Sun Aug 17, 2008, 7:07 PM

My World Visitor Profile Map

I´ve beem tagged by :iconstudiocartoon: to write 10 things about my art. Well, I´m gonna try write the less I can...becauseI may star a book

1- I didn´t have a lot of friends when I was a kid, mainly because I moved from one city to another a lot, so I drew all the time.

2- I´m luck that my parents never tried to divert me from the artistic life. As blocked-minded my father can be sometimes, he never tried to make me follow another kind of carrer. But they weren´t as encouraging as they could´ve been as well.

3- All my time in school most of people used to think me as a cocky person because I used to show my drawings, but I only showed them when people asked me to.

4 - My first water color pencils box I won from my Math teacher, when I was eleven.

5 - When I  entered Graphic Design graduation I denied my artistic part for most of the time, and I regret to have thought this way once in my life.

6- My first exposition was a colection of works from my city´s art society, which I don´t live in anymore. I exposed just three art pieces, all oriental themed.

7- I have a paste A2 sized and an A4 size in which I keep all my private creations. I only show them to very close friends.

8- I hate to follow just one style. Tradicional or digital, I have the unbareble need to change it. From manga style, to comic, to realism, I can´t keep just one. I used to think it was a bad thing, cause my style is not recognizable, but now I like this, because each style I land, I take the things I like and add to my current on, whichends up to be the mixture of every style I already drew.

9- I can´t draw sad an macabre things... Well, technicly I can, but I just don´t like it.

10- I think that my art is made for me to express myself in anyway I want to. But I also think that I have to leave something useful to the world with my art. Otherwise why would I be able to draw? Not just to pay my bills I guess.

Well, thats it.
Hope u enjoy knowing a little more about my art.

Hello Everybody!

I´ve had been having some time lately, ´cause january is not a very good month for freelancer jobs, so I am having time to draw for myself. I´m gonna be posting a lot of illustrations this year!

To be closer to you I have some exciting news!
:new:First, I want to make new prints with some of my old deviations, can you help me figure out which of them are your favorites? Here they are:

:thumb44861962: tequila makesme a betterperson by krisagon :thumb74011282:
:thumb60868906: Ambiguous Embrace by krisagon  :thumb74073212:

As you can see, I´m changing a little bit from vector art to digital painting. Well, I guess it´s normal, I don´t like making the same things, I like changes. But I´ll always go back to vector from time to time, as to water colors, and other styles.

You wanna help me in the next illustratiôn? Here´s the deal:
There will be four polls asking about the elements of my next illustration, and you can thecide which they´re gonna be!
Quick! We´re already on the third poll! Here are the links to them, you can still vote!

POLL 1 (main character):…
POLL 2 (scenario background):…
POLL 3 (scenario main element):…

I hope you help me OK?

Best wishes for all! PEACE and LOVE!
Kisses from Brazil!

Hey there!

Stay tuned! 2008 will be a year of exciting news!
I´m working very hard to bring very cool stuff. Sorry, but the thing you will see less and less here is vector art based on people´s face pictures. As I´ve been really busy with work,´I´m focusing my free time on 100% created illustrations. Most of them with kids themes.
But probably I´ll post  some extra art this year yet.

I hope u like it, please stay tuned!
