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, sculpting, writing and performing arts has been my perennial interest in telling stories.
I have made thousands of illustrations, several comics and paintings, including murals.
My interest in studying movement led me to love sports illustration and action scenes.
This passion also 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 art in Ecuador from the end of the nineties, for video documentaries and television advertisements.
I studied the Stanislavski system for acting for 6 years. It definitely helps me to create characters for illustration or animation.
I got my green card and came to live and work in the USA in January 2006. First, I was some months in New York and I settled permanently in California in September of that same year.
I started working as an illustrator for a publisher in Berkeley in February 2007 until my boss retired and closed his office (December 2019).
I also wrote several scripts for comics and animated shorts. Additionally, I am co-author of a short printed novel.
Although I have worked professionally in all the steps of the audiovisual production process, I feel that my greatest skills are in conceptualizing, drawing, painting and sculpting, especially in the creation of characters and worlds.
