Daniel is an award-winning conceptual illustrator and author based in Bogotá, Colombia.
His work mainly focuses on brainstorming thought-provoking imagery for selected top-selling publishers, newspapers, magazines, ad campaigns and institutions.
As an author, he is deeply inspired by semiotics and linguistics, on how the meaning of language is much broader than what common sense implies.
Among other accolades, his recent and first published graphic novel, Gravity, was awarded both a Gold Medal from The Society of Illustrators in New York, and the Seymour Chwast MA-g Award in Zurich, originally judged by Chwast himself.
Daniel frequently runs workshops and lectures around his country. When ideas doesn't come, he takes a walk around nearby parks around his home, sits still in a bench and contemplates all the quiet people having their time. Then ideas arrive.
Always take a walk.
