At this moment I'm finishing my Art studies at Barcelona's University (UB) while working in my first book, titled "El Cuaderno Crepuscular" (The Twilight Notebook), a fantasy co-production with Spanish illustrator Raúl Guerra, which will be hopefully published at some time in the future between now and the end of the world (which seems to have been put off after 2012).
