His early influences were Disney's animated shorts and 70's Spanish comics authors. Since the 80's Tomas Serrano published his cartoons and caricatures in the Spanish papers. In 1995 he obtained; as a cartoonist, the renowned "Mingote Award". This prize opened doors for him and his cartoons were published in the influential "Blanco & Negro" magazine. In 2011, Tomas Serrano was rewarded in the gag category of the "World Press Cartoon" Sintra, Portugal. In may 2014 he began drawing caricatures and editorial illustrations for the Spanish national newspaper "ABC".
