Hi! I'm Alan
and this is how
it all began

Ever since I was a little boy
i've loved to draw on things and in
kindergarten when the other kids
were making circles and squares,
I was drawing houses in perspective.


1992

Drawing led to modifying my toys and creating small inventions

When I was 9 I made a
painted cardboard bear
mask that a friend of
mine liked so much,
he made his parents
buy it from me for $4


1994

I INVENTED
THE MICROSCOPE

When I was 11 I invented
a tiny microscope made
from a small deodorant
container, some wire and
glue using a droplet of water
as a lens


1999

ALAN THE GUITAR PLAYER

Some years went by and I fell in love with music. In school, I worked
with my older brother and a couple of friends to start a rock band named
Lotus. I was the lead guitar.


2003

I HATED MY FIRST JOB

Local concerts and more years went by, and when the band members
started chasing their grown-up dreams, I found myself working in a
multinational, spending my days talking with clients about their internet connection problems.

I hated doing that
so to relax I started
to draw on my phone ...

   ... My desk phone !


2005

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DESIGNER...

So after more than 16 years, my love for drawing
started to surface again.

About then I became a vegetarian
and when my friends (the meat eaters)
saw my drawing skills they pushed me
to do something about it

AND I DID !





I QUIT MY JOB !

I quit my job the next day and started web design, print design and video animation.


IT WAS ALL AWESOME...


I didn’t feel the joy of drawing like I had when I was a kid...

I didn’t feel that I was creating something from scratch...


2009

But in 2009 all that changed when I first
saw the iPhone and I met Steve Jobs...


...in a keynote


I bought one immediately and it was so beautiful that I wanted to lick it !


After this...

THE REST IS HISTORY


Today

I became a full time Icon and app designer
and i've never looked back since.
