Q of Glam
About the artist
Where are you located?
I am from Benidorm, a touristic city of Spain well known for its beaches. Because of its high buildings, my town it is also known as “Beniyork”.
Tell us about yourself:
I am a psychologist who decided to make career with graphic design and illustration, the passion of my life.
What's a day in the life of diemargo like?
The good or the bad days? Well, the neutral days I wake up, go to the gym, and then in the job, I use to annoy my mates with my music stuff. If the day ends up good, it is because my friends call me asking me to go out just for a drink, and we end up at the casino wasting money we do not have.
Tell us about this design, are you a Lady Gaga fan?
That is a tricky question, since I’m not that fan of Lady Gaga’s music. Nonetheless, what I do like about her is the fact that she has spread the eccentricity of the vintage Glam Rock among pop music. That was what David Bowie did, who is by the way, my actual idol.
What's your favorite song?
From Gaga? I guess “Bad Romance” In general, “Station to Station”, from Mr. Bowie.
What do you like to do for fun?
Play some poker (obviously) with the friends, drawing, discovering new old music, watching films and having booze with my buddies.
Star Trek or Star Wars?
Star Wars, definitely. But the old trilogy, and concretely the non remastered version. I hate computer FX in films. In my opinion, before it used to be a great work behind films FX, with their animatronics, their models and their liquid blood.
Would you rather survive a zombie apocalypse or a nuclear apocalypse?
I think I’d rather live between zombies than cockroaches. Zombies seem to be more relaxed and easygoing people.
Do you collect anything, or at least have any OCD about anything?
If you leave out this small things that happens to all of us, as closing the door 10 times before leaving home, translating to Latin mentally what you see on TV, and keeping your nails in bottles since you were child, I consider myself as a balanced-minded person.
How did you get your start in art?
Since I had a pen and a paper in my hands, as simple as it is. I remember when I was child, after seeing an exciting film, I had to draw about this. Now I do the same, but after seeing an exciting woman...:P
MAC or PC?
I do love MAC, but by now I have to work with my veteran PC. It is a granny now and I own it some respect.
Any shout outs?
Greetings to my mum.
