Who am I?


Yes, ahem. That’s me.

My name is Jesús Alfonso Sánchez, I’m a professional illustrator and graphic designer, I come from the scorching and beautiful lands of northern México but I currently live in the mediterranean and beautiful lands of western Portugal. Born 20-something years ago, I decided from a young age that I would become something related to the visual arts. Until I discovered how much I love traveling and now my final goal in life is to try to combine these two passions.

I will say that my best asset is that I can work on different styles, which allows me to delve into different kinds of media, like videogames, publishing and branding; and to never do the same thing over and over, because who likes that, right? …right?

Apart from drawing, painting and traveling, I enjoy cooking, eating and drinking, and all forms of pop culture and entertainment, mainly movies, series, cartoons, videogames and comics.
