Since then, he has specialized in developing projects in graphic novel formats, such as the graphic adaptation of the movie "El Narco," a satirical piece about drug trafficking in the country; the project for the Mexican Army forces "María. Una pequeña gran lucha para erradicar la discriminación y la violencia de género," a story to raise awareness about gender inequality and sexual violence in the armed forces; and the book about the life of the Pope Francis.
