Illustrations by Goni Montes
I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, where I lived most of my life. After attending the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez and acquiring a BA in Fine Arts, I began working as a scientific illustrator for the Puerto Rico Sea Grant. To pursue a career in editorial work (and whatnot), I moved to Atlanta, GA and obtained an MFA in illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Today I freelance from Decatur, GA, teach a class or two at SCAD, and assist my friend Bill Mayer in a few of his crazed projects.
