My name is Juan Servera Safon, I do (and love) 3D Art, illustration and in general, the creation of any kind of digital content from scratch.
My goals are:
1. Keeping me busy with learning and preserving my day 1 mentality.
2. Finding motivating projects in which I can be involved.

I have successfully worked on projects in diverse areas, like video games, mobile, VR, architecture, films and commercials.
