Thanx to Diego, I can make 2 things in the same time: having the list of spanish artists interviewed growing, and, in the meantime, having the UK one growing also. How can I explain such a miracle ? Just because, together with his own talent talent, Diego's art is fed with both cultures. He is maybe THE living evidence that Rock Posters is no frontier story.
listening to when we come to visit you?
I've listening a lot to Crazy Spirit, an amazing punk band from Brooklyn, and a few of the amazing Mississippi Records compilations.
Can you tell us more about yourself, who are you, where are you from,

Where does your influence come from? Is there any artists/graphists
you particularly like, what are your influences?
What are the principal steps in your work ?
Justin Santora do everything by hand
but I also get a lot out of using the computer, especially in the final steps of the process.
How long does it take you to do a poster?
You have a very distinctive style, are you doing only what you feel
like or if tomorrow somebody asks you an oil painting with horses
running out of water with a sunset backdrop, is it a problem or are
you up for it ?
For which band have you already worked for?
Do you choose the artists yourself?
What is the most difficult part in designing a poster ?
Do you think you are part of a "Graphic Scene", if so who else ?
