Antifo, a cosmopolitan merchant and agent for Rome, secretly meets in the baths young Diodoro, one of his most valued friends. He has sent the ephebes a little further to be able to speak freely, and melancholy has for a moment seized their thoughts. (For the historical novel The Chalice of Melqart, Arturo Gonzalo Aizpiri).

I have always painted; I had no choice, so to speak.
After more than twelve years making historical illustration for different media in several countries, I feel like a time traveler (with a lot of books and brushes in my backpack) who never stops discovering and learning, and who has the privileged possibility to open for others some kind of illustrated window to the past.
I also have had the opportunity to illustrate many other types of stories, tales, novels (what’s better than a good story?), and I'm exploring new fields to continue doing so bigger and better.
