Tavo Montañez

Mexico Illustration

His name is Gustavo Díaz Montañez (a.k.a. Tavo Montañez). He is a freelance illustrator & graphic designer based in Mexico. His work tables usually consists of a lot of liner pens, pencils and coffee, but he loves to work with his Wacom tablet in Adobe Photoshop too.
A conscious effort to make his work more broadly appealing in its tone has coincided with an increasing focus on his favorite way of creating images: he initially works with pencil and ink pigment liners, (sometimes in his Moleskine sketchbook) before the hand-drawn art gets edited and colored on his iMac. He also works with vectors, watercolor and colour pencils, and playing with custom-made typography and enjoys the composition in editorial layouts. Whether it is a personal or a commissioned work, Tavo always aims to keep his work attractive and intriguing in terms of concept and technique.
