Paulo Mosca

Most of his work has been developed in the world of animation, as a director, art director, and character designer doing storyboards, animatics, and more. After first studying illustration in Coruña—which served only to learn this path was not for him—animation in Madrid, where he not only learned loads, but made lots of excellent professional contacts, as well as working on a lot of jobs that had nothing to do with art, he started to develop his own style of bizarre illustration that caught people's attention. It was then that he started getting small commissions here and there.

His first big job at a professional level was the headline for Season One of La Hora by Jose Mota, an extremely famous TV show in Spain, directed by Tomás Peña, in which he was in charge of the concept drawings, character designs, and backgrounds. Later, for Season Two, he was in charge of the co-direction of the masthead, together with Tomás Peña, along with the character design and artistic direction, always alongside Tomás. He then worked for a season doing storyboards and animatics for the TV series Jelly Jamm.

He currently teaches visual storytelling at UTAD (University of Technology and Digital Art) and at IED (Istituto Europeo di Design), which he combines with talks, advertising assignments, television etc. In reality, work horrifies him. He truly enjoys is reading comics, drinking beer, and listening to records.

Abel Sánchez

With a degree in fine arts, specializing in plastic arts, from the Complutense University of Madrid, his entire career has been as a designer, graphic artist, and post-producer in various multinationals such as Turner Entertainment, Sony, AMC, and Viacom, for creative departments both freelance and in-house.
In 1999, he founded Tricefalo Studio with his wife.

They currently work intensively on brand and content development for various television programs both nationally and internationally, combining it with advertising and anything that seems interesting and fun.
