Winner of a Gràffica Award

1 min read

I’m very happy an honored to announce that Gràffica, the most important design and creativity media in Spanish, has awarded me with a Gràffica Award.

In their own words:
The jury has decided to award it to Magoz for his enormous aesthetic minimalism. Magoz can illustrate concepts and stories with an almost child simplicity, and we still can find layers of intelligent graphic sophistication and visual narration in his work. Because his personal perspective generates clean, clear, concise, direct, stunning and smart images.

Next week, I’ll be in Zaragoza (Spain) to collect the award and also give a short talk.
Thank you very much to Gràffica and the jury for this award and congratulations to the rest of the winners.

See you there!

How to Contact Art Directors and Get Assignments. My Favourite Art Directors Explain How

9 min read


When I felt I was ready to start working as an illustrator, I developed a plan to contact art directors and get some assignments.
I didn’t have any experience and I learnt with the trial and error method, after hundreds of emails.

Many of you have written me asking what is the best way to approach an art director and get assignments.
Instead of explaining my point of view and strategy, I thought the best way was to go straight to the source. I’ve asked my favourite art directors to share their thoughts with us and those are the results.
