My name is Gilberto G. Sánchez, aka "Krotalon".
I am an illustrator, designer, artist and art restorer. My first approach to drawing was by my mom and dad, who taught me how to draw and impelled to develop creativity and imagination. I like to recreate through my illustrations and paintings, characters and fantastic environments.
I was born in Mexico City and I live in Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, where since I was little I used to draw creatures and monsters because I thought that if I drew them, if they existed.
I studied design and visual communication, I did the specialty in the area of illustration, traditional techniques and digital media. I continue updating with courses and workshops.
