What role does music play in your day-to-day life as a creative?:
The ritual that inspires me the most is playing a playlist on my phone and going for a walk. It helps me concentrate on the details that I wouldn’t see if I surrounded by the ambient noise, which tend to be chaotic in a city. I like working at night. Many of my illustrations are inspired by repeating the same song over and over, and then I will have to get it out of my head by drawing an image. I think music stirs our memories because we can always relate one song to a moment in our life or a feeling that we had in a certain moment. This emotional journey can easily become a source of inspiration.
Tell us about your playlist:
This playlist is what I am listening at the moment. I recently came back from a trip to Chilean Patagonia where I tried the delicious cocktail Mango Sour, and I decided to make a list that invoke the sense of freshness and tropical flavor. I like R&B, soul, and Hip Hop with Latino influences.
