About

I’m a Spanish artist and illustrator living in Seattle. I’m a big  fan of fusion and retro music of all kinds and my passion is making album covers and posters inspired in the golden era of Jazz and Latin Fusion.

I’ve been making album covers since late 80’s and been involved myself into a bunch of crazy music projects with jazz, experimental, retro and prog cool cats, including artists from bands like King Crimson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Fairport Convention, No-Man, and Thinking Plague.

As a vintage vinyl hunter, I get the inspiration from all those grouse mid-century modern albums covers and record labels such as Command, Blue Note, Spinorama, Columbia, Liberty and Mercury.

I dig all the retro beats and:

  •  Jazz fusion
  • Flamenco & Latin fusion
  • Prog & experimental
  • Electronica & Space-Age

When it comes to creating album covers, I’m mostly interested in capturing the feeling and essence of the music.  My call is to take it to a simple visual image that the audience can feel in a glimpse of an eye.

I grew up in Spain and moved to Seattle, USA in 2008 with my lovely wife and beautiful designer Naomi Niles.

If you are a musician / DJ into Jazz, Fusion & Flamenco music and you dig my work feel free to give me a shout and let’s do something bangin together!
