Hi! This is me!
Wherever I sit down, I am likely to have my pencil in my hand and I start sketching my surroundings.
My name is Pablo Ortega López. I am a visual storyteller with some decades of experience especially creating worlds and characters for illustration and 3D animation, for different subjects from science to fiction.
Like everyone else, I started drawing when I was a little kid... but I never stopped.
Since childhood, what has fueled my passion for drawing, painting, sculpture, literature and the performing arts has been my perennial interest in telling stories.
That is why I have made thousands of illustrations, several hundred pages of comics and paintings, including murals.
That same passion for storytelling led me to learn traditional animation during the 80s and three-dimensional animation from the mid-90s on. This is how I became one of the pioneers of 3D short film production in Ecuador, my country of origin. From the end of the nineties until the first years of this millennium I was deeply dedicated to visual development and animation for video documentaries and television commercials.
I have written several scripts for comics and for animated shorts. I am also co-author of a short printed novel.
I have studied and experienced the Stanislavski system for acting for 6 years and it definitedly helps me to create and animate characters.
I have done the video and sound editing and composition for all my animations and other video productions.
Although I have worked professionally in all the steps of the audiovisual production process, I feel that my greatest skills are about leading artist to get thir best combined talents in conceptualizing characters and worlds, drawing, sculpting, animating until the final version is edited as I imagined it or better.
I made my terrible first complete comic fascicles when I was 10 years old. Forty years ago they seemed amazing to me. Now, those old feelings about my first comics became to nostalgia.
Although it is true that life pushed me to learn and work in several areas of art, in California I learned that my main skill is around concept and visual development. So, as much as I have spent my whole life learning new technologies applied to art, my greatest strength is in what I can do with the first tool I learned to use to make my first drawings almost 50 years ago, when I didn't even know how to write or read: a simple and humble pencil!
