Noted for his stylized characters and compositions.
Originally from Barcelona, Miki studied at Joso School, where he taught color and photoshop for three years. He spent a few years working on storyboards for TV advertisements, designing characters and backgrounds for videogames and animation, and doing concepts for feature films. He then moved to Ireland to work at CartoonSaloon animation studios and also started to work on his comicbook Warship Jolly Roger. For a year plus he lived in Berlin and continued work on his comicbook series. He is now back in Barcelona, currently working on the third book.

Miki is a great artist and teacher, he is very diligent when critiquing students' works. I also felt that his classes were fun and enjoyable to be a part of, even though there was a lot of work to be done on each assignment, every week felt light and easy to follow.
Miki has been an amazing instructor. He has been really helpfull with all the students and provided great feedback and advice and the lectures have been really useful and interesting.
The best was the in-depth critiques and all the involvement displayed during Q&As, not only demoing but answering all the questions during them.
Miki is probably the best instructor I had so far in CGMA. It was a pleasure to learn from him.
I thought his approach from an animation angle was interesting and much more thorough than a typical comic artist. I've worked in both industries for Marvel and a lot of the big animation studies and thought he was a top notch instructor, comparing him to industry practices and the classes they hold at TAG, the Animation union. I would recommend Miki and the CGMA classes to anyone, including top professionals who want to brush up their skills or explore something new.
This class was incredible. The curriculum Miki has prepared went above and beyond what I was expecting. I will be recommending this class to everyone I know!
