I still have a lot of posts to catch up on, some of them are sooo old! I'm sorry Samuel, for just getting to this now. When I did this interview, he was a student and "occasional illustrator", I wonder how his life has changed since! Looks to me like he might be doing more illustration, as these new pieces currently show an illustrative style. I like the way he combines drawing and scraps of paper, it is a method that is very versatile for an illustrator.

Describe your work in 10 words or less.
Clean, calculated, sometimes critic, hybrid.
What do you like to work with (magazines, photographs, vintage)? Be specific!
Old magazines, I have lots of Readers Digest magazines so it's good material to work with. And I'm always alert to find papers and material in the garbage and streets. Package, labels, stuff like that.
How long have you been creating collages and what made you start?
My mom says that when I was little I used to collect pieces of paper in a box. When I grew up I realized how interesting are the old imagery and the hybrid things that I can create whit this technique. Make a collage is fun, and I like the recycling theme and that kind of stuff... so I think is a reason.
When you look collages from artist you admire it seems so easy, but it isn't, that's interesting about collage too.
Are you solely an artist, or do you work in another profession?
I don't know if im an artist but I'm studying graphic
design. I work as freelance illustrator sometimes.
Do you have any formal art training?
Besides the college (graphic design), no.
Explain your favourite techniques.
Sitting on my desk, take a magazine, scissors, glue, a
pencil, and have fun.
Describe your favourite piece ever created.
My Moleskines, they are like a journal, with collages,
