Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, the land of tequila, Alfredo Roagui is passionate about drawing, as many of his generation he grew up under the magic of Disney animation, but for him this was more than just childish fun, it was a key role in the construction of his own personal illustrated universe, which aroused in him the desire to capture what he felt and lived, to develop his own drawing style, also influenced by the artwork of Tom of Finland, and the genius of artist Glen Hanson, among many others.
