About

Hello! My name is Ho-Seh Esquivel. I’m an illustrator and designer from Texas. My work has expanded into the fields of games, comics, films, and even podcasts! Alto means tall in spanish, and shorter is english for shorter. It once came into when a friend and I were brainstorming names for punk bands. The name stuck with me since. It’s OK if you were expecting saxophones to be involved.

What’s with the name?
