Dovi

Dovi (Luis Doviso)

Born in Irun (Euskadi), in december, during the well known "1984 snowfall". According to his father: "he learnt to draw before he learnt to speak". Since his childhood, he loved all kinds of nerdy stuff, and devoured every Anime, Manga and Comic that came into his hands, while he drew and invented stories with his friend John Sein. Later, he got into roleplaying games...

After briefly trying the University, he didn’t find any purpouse in it, and eventually studied Graphic Design in KUNSTHAL (Irun). After that, he became co-founder and member of the Marketing Department of ZENIT Hybrid Crafts (ZENIT Embarcaciones Híbridas), a naval engineering enterprise based on renewable energies. He still works in it, combining it with other Designer or Waitress jobs, as far as possible. After such a colorful curriculum, Luis felt the call of his "Illustrator Inner Nature", and went to Barcelona in order to learn Illustration in the JOSO School, where he met the Colorist Joe Tudesky. Both make a very good working duo and have undergone very good sprees.

Today, he survives as a soldier of fortune, making illustrations, design, starting projects or serving drinks. If you have a problem, and if you can find him....maybe you can hire The A-Team! I mean... DOVI!"

LIKES: Sex, Draw & Rock’N’Roll

DISLIKES: His mutant skill to ignore the alarm clock, being poor when (clearly) he was born to be as rich as Tony Stark.

STYLE: People define him as Amerimanga, he prefers "Eclectic"... sounds cooler. ¬_¬*blink!
