We had the good fortune of connecting with Jorge Torres (A.K.A Limbo Mask) and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jorge, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
One of the abitos that helped me continue to grow as an illustrator It was practicing many hours and knowing how to observe the details, it is also worth mentioning that the inspiration of some friends helped me improve my work and challenge myself to improve every day
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My work is inspired by many things that I like, I go from nature issues to technology occasionally to politics as well. What makes me most proud of my work is that I can express my concerns or ideals and what distinguishes me from others is that I always do what I think should be seen. I got to where I am professionally, working daily to improve my technique, it is only working and being self-critical with myself, you have to love what you do but also be hard with yourself to make the level of the work grow, I am still in the learning process … The only way to overcome challenges is to practice there is no more Along the way I have learned a lot to talk to clients to understand them a little better and be accessible, many times as creatives we believe that we are right or the same client, but in the end one understands that it must be 50 and 50 to do a job is well developed Something that the world I want you to know about me is that I only do what I like and I think, do not take personal the political positions of any artist in the end they are only ways of expressing what each individual thinks and that is what makes us free in a democratic country
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, there are definitely many people who inspire me every day, many of them are close to me, others are not, the people close to me are my family and a couple of friends who have always supported me and even when I just started and my work was not one. Wonderful, I say it because I have gradually improved but their moral support is very important for my growth. Yes, there is a book within the creative community called Steal like an artist by Austin Kleon, without a doubt that book was a great help to realize that every artist is a thief (in a good sense of the word), since I read that book I began to experiment more with my work and to grow, but I want to say that this is one of many that there are and without a doubt any book from humanities to scientists are good for our knowledge cabinet … about institutions that inspire me, there is undoubtedly a group of human rights activists who are always inspiring me, some have already died, others have not, I will mention some: Aaron Swartz Martin Luther King Gandhi Jullian Assange Aaron Swartz And many more other not so media activists
