Well, first of all, my name is Mariana Moreno and I'm the most recent member of Ka-Boom! Studio. I've been here for only three years, but I'm seriously planning to stay here for a long time, as long as it takes to reactivate the comic industry here in Mexico.
My first official project was the redesigning of the characters of an important shoe-making Mexican company named "Coqueta y Audaz". As Oscar already told you in the previous posts, the artists here at Ka-boom! participate in one small internal contest so the client can choose the character design he likes the most. In that occasion, my designs were chosen, so I had to do all of the layouts and model sheets. It was a little difficult for me since it was the first time I ever did model sheets, but it was fun to learn while doing it.
Months later, Alex's designs were chosen for the redesign of the Bubble Gummers' characters. As we didn't have much time, Alex and I teamed up to do the first comic. While I penciled it, he inked it, and later, Tonatiuh did the colored it. Susy was in charge of the script. The difficulty of this project was the fact that I had to imitate Alex's style perfectly. That's why Ka-Boom's artists are very versatile; we can draw from a serious style to a cartoon one.
Thank you all for giving me this great opportunity, and I hope we can share lots of experiences with our international friends.
