Since we were asked to start staying at home, the corner in my kitchen has turned into my temporary studio. I’ve got everything I need here: my computer, iPad, line table and mate – very important. I also keep my tattoo materials here, just in case. I did a little tattoo on myself last week, and maybe I’ll end up doing another over the next few days.
My practice is a lot about distortion, and right now I’m creating a lot of patterns that are built through distorting a text over and over until it becomes a new image.
I love how I can find a lot of textures and gradients in black
When I get stuck and need inspiration I flick through these Crap Hound magazines. Each issue has an amazing selection of images on different topics, and they really help me get creative and conceptualise
Liners & Markers
At the minute I’m sticking to a lot of different liners and markers of different thicknesses. I love how I can find a lot of textures and gradients in black just by using them.
I’m also currently obsessed with this deck of traditional Lotería cards that I brought over from Mexico last year. Lotería is a Mexican game of chance, that uses these image cards instead of a deck of cards. I’m finding it a very good source of inspiration during these times at home.

I’m working on a series of A3 drawings where I combine text, distortion and the human figure.
