Who we are? Who’s Panda?

As you can read in our profile, Pandapon Studio is a team. We are from Spain, and live together in Parla (a small town near Madrid). Yes, we live together (with our 3 cats) because we are a married couple (mind you) In this team, Panda (the one writing this) is in charge of the script, and Kamapon draws, inks, tones and do all the hard work :P Well, I work hard too, but my creative process is kind of chaotic and spontaneous. In fact I spend most of this "working process" reading, playing or watching movies. And then... suddenly... the ideas come to me. Then I NEED to write them down, and I won’t hear you even if you are screaming for my attention, won’t eat, won’t anything, because I'm writing. Nothing exists, only the idea and my pc. Some times I get stuck, because the inspiration is fragile, like a candle in the wind. At those moments I normally stay away from the computer, and try to clear my mind (yeah, kind of Zen process). Then I start questioning the plot until I can figure a way to solve the problem.
My work tool is a little Vaio notebook I won writing in a contest sponsored by AXN tv channel in Spain. I always write the scripts in Notepad ++. It is a very simple program I use for programming too.
About myself... I'm 32 (soon to be 33) and work as senior programmer in one the most important communication groups here in Spain. Also I'm an amateur writer. I also write roleplaying games and adventures for a little Spanish publisher (Holocubierta Ediciones). I spend most of my time playing roleplaying games, writing, playing videogames, watching old films, and reading... a lot. My writing influences are authors I admire a lot: Robert E. Howard, H.P Lovecraft, Jules Verne, and Arturo Perez Reverte. Although I consider myself still young, I have a lot of vital experiences that influences everything I write.
