Jacobo Muniz

Someone said that the extent to which we enjoy our work is determined by the degree of resemblance it has to those childhood games that amused us the most.

As a child, Jacobo spent hours drawing, making stories on loose pages that he later roughly stapled (he never handled staplers well). Then came a stage of darkness and turbulence in which he stopped listening to himself. Until, when he came across the sentence at the beginning, along with other ingredients of life, he returned to drawing as a result.

Today he enjoys as much as when he was little. His goal is to rediscover that childish spontaneity that guides the mind of any child.
