"Throughout my years as an illustrator, my style has been quite eclectic. Over time I framed my work as Sen! And Emilio Darlun, two different illustration concepts that I really enjoy doing. With Sen! I developed my love for the line and black and white, an illustration with a slightly more adult and elegant air.
With Emilio Darlun I give free rein to my most childish and dreamlike side. Emilio Darlun's universe is humorous, full of color, tender and carefree. I like to see Emilio Darlun as more than a pseudonym. I consider him as one of my characters who got a life of his own and, in that life, has chosen to dedicate himself to illustrating his dreams.
I think what I do, as much as Sen! or like Emilio Darlun, he is united by fantasy and fairy tale imagery. "
