About me

I am animator and illustrator who explores the boundaries of storytelling and image making based on my animation and illustration background. I am fascinated by the social sciences and the unfolding nature of human being and I believe in culture as a tool for awareness and reciprocity. For commissions or just a hello: ximeniiux@gmail.com
