Good, here you have me. I'm Lobulo and I'm currently working as a set designer for different clients and agencies. I started in the papercraft about 2009 when, from a Christmas postcard that I made for my friends, they contacted me as an illustrator for some editorial articles. Since then, I have worked for almost everyone, with clients such as Google, Coca-Cola or Telefónica, among others.
