Testimonials

What my colleagues and clients have to say about me.

  • Josh Herrig, Senior Lighting Artist at Weta Digital.

    The single most gifted mixed media artist I have ever met. Carlos has applied his talents to becoming a great character animator, non-traditional artist and generalist. Never short on a progressive opinion, I’d welcome the chance to work with Carlos again.

    - Josh Herrig, Senior Lighting Artist at Weta Digital.
  • Per Juhlén, Senior Development Director at DICE.

    Carlos is very structured without losing out on flexibility. Always delivers great work, on time and in accordance with agreements or specifications. He truly investigates all options available for achieving the best possible result and managed to deliver material faster and on par with what we used other companies for doing. Carlos personality as well as professional qualities is truly top notch.

    - Per Juhlén, Senior Development Director at DICE.
  • Jorge Balladares, SELVA.

    Carlos is one of the greatest artists that I’ve known. He really gets involved in any project, researching deep in the theme, the concept and the ideas that best reflect what the client wants. Any project becomes a piece of art that represents its essence thanks to his creativity. Atrapados and Cuatrotreintaydos, our new album, have been works that we are very proud of having them. Thanks Carlitos.
