Hello! I'm a self taught illustrator and cartoonist from Mexico City, currently living in Texas, USA. I have an online shop called Gatosaurio where you can find my comics, apparel and more.

I am a freelancer and have done illustrations for VICE, The Believer Magazine and The New York Times. My comics have been published in the USA, the UK, Spain and Sweden. From 2010 to 2015, I worked as the editor of Tebeo Tropical, the comics column for Vice Mexico. Recently, I co-edited Fanzinología Mexicana 1985-2015, the first compilation about the history and graphic of mexican zines. I also co-organized the first zine festival in Mexico City, Zin Amigos in 2012. I have participated in various international comic festivals and have also given talks and workshops about making zines, comics and organizing events.

IRIS is a substance that exists in all women. It appears to be a sensible and powerful chemical, but due to the changing nature of its state, it has been studied scarcely and thus remains a mystery.

IRIS is a project I made in collaboration with Edición Instantánea in Morelia, Michoacán. We produced a silkscreened edition of 60 copies of this zine, and I drew and watercoloured extra stuff on each copy. Each zine is huge! (26.5 x 33 cm / 10.4 x 13 in) * Mexico, 2014 * Sold out
