Interview with Ernesto Priego from Spain

You define yourself as an illustrator or as a cartoonist?

Rather, as an illustrator, but with a

hidden desire to explore this

field that is wonderful caricature.


- How was your passion for cartoon?

I got my start in the world of comics,

collaborating with fanzines and often

with humor, that somehow

shake hands.


There was a teacher who influenced your work?

I've always been in love with the work

Vizcarra, but the style of Jota Leal

Although not affect me, I have very





- What is the cartoon for you?

Discover when you draw, you know things him, he does not know it reflects.

- How do you approach a character when to caricature?

I try to know what world moves, which

have hobbies, I like to reflect the side

humorous, though sometimes and

depending on the character, that is

really hard.




- What techniques do you use?

I always used pencil and pen,

but for about 4 years

Specifically photoshop and a tablet

wacom. I know there are those who question this

for a caricature. They usually go over to



-There is a long discussion whether the technique definitively replace digital paper or canvas, what do you think of that?

Two tools for the same purpose,

discussion on this is in my opinion

has occurred, the only technology opens new

fields. Nobody complains that the latest

creations of Walt Disney or Pixar

made entirely by computer, and

nobody remembers that cartoonists

worked animations frame by






- How far can you get one cartoonist?
