Hello! I'm a self taught illustrator and cartoonist from Mexico City (sí, soy chilanga) currently based in Texas.
Gatosaurio is my online shop and also the label under which I’ve put out comics and apparel since 2012.

I work as a freelancer and have done illustrations for publications like VICE, The Believer Magazine and The New York Times. I’ve self-published two comics collections: Ojitos Borrosos (2012) and Impatience (2016), and my graphic novel Lapsos (2014) has been published in Sweden and Spain.

I’ve also worked in other projects related to comics and self publishing. From 2010 to 2015, I was the editor of Tebeo Tropical, a weekly comics column I wrote for VICE México. In 2012, I co-organized the first zine festival in Mexico City, Zin Amigos. Most recently, I co-edited and designed Fanzinología Mexicana 1985-2015, the first compilation about the history and graphic of mexican zines. I have also given talks and workshops in various international festivals about making zines, comics and organizing events.

Here’s a portrait of me in my studio ; )
