My name is Hector and I was born in Barcelona (Spain) in 1986, and I always loved drawing. So, when I was 16 I started studying at Joso Comics, where I learned a lot of skills for my future job: Concept Artist and Game Developer.
Sadly, sometimes you can’t can work on you dream field, and when I was 21 I moved to Cáceres (Spain) to work on my second passion, Web Developing. My dad had a PC at home when I was young, so I started to code a few websites since I was around 14 years old until today.
A few years later I met Nikotxan (creator of the first animated webserie on Spain named Cálico Electrónico) and thanks to him, the desire to learn 2D animation aroused in me. While I was learning animation, I started a YouTube channel trying to grow up my skill as an animator. The channel later reached about 113.000 subscribers and, thanks to this, I was able to work with many famous brands like Playstation, Netflix, Nintendo…
During this time I moved to Cadiz, and Niko and I made a few webseries for the Latinamerican public. “Mad Dinner”, “Super Épico” and “Las crónicas Troll” are some examples of this. In the present, I work as a freelance doing concept art, character design and GUI designs for some Videogame Studios like Uplay Online. Also, I’m developing my own games as a Game Developer. “Train to Nowhere” and “The Golden Scythe” are some examples.
So, that’s it! Thank you so much for reading my story and I hope we can work someday in the future!
