Tell us about the work you create in your personal practice and your creative upbringing.
Drawing has been one of my favorite activities since I was a kid. Among other reasons, I discovered that it was an amazing way to express myself . A few years ago, I started to be aware of the great potential that images have, so I always keep myself stimulated. I’m always expressing myself, translating my ideas through drawings, no matter how complex de designs.
Describe the underlying inspirations behind some of the elements in your design for the limited edition Clase Azul bottle and your creative process.
The Día de Muertos tradition is culturally very rich. With these drawings I wanted to symbolically illustrate how I imagine the journey of the spirits from the Mictlan to the land of the living, where we get to be together again among flowers and colors.
What was it like collaborating with Clase Azul and what projects do you have in the works?
Working with Clase Azul was a very nice experience because I was able to see up close some of the love and care they put into their processes. Because of this, I challenged myself to make illustrations that, apart from being aesthetically beautiful, would beautifully represent the cultural importance and traditions of Día de Muertos.
