Gabriel was made in Argentina in 1979, and imported to the U.S. at the tender age of 16. All these years later, and still has not made up his mind about what he wants to do for a living. Loves (in no particular order): reading in bed, sun-lit rooms, getting lost, travels abroad, tweed jackets, ethnic food, herbal tea, strong coffee, old films, the printed page, illustrated record sleeve covers, and the challenges of visual communication.
Currently designs book interiors for St. Martin’s Press at Macmillan’s New York City headquarters, where he helps to keep the flame of print alive while dwelling on crucial matters such as whether to set type in 11 point Baskerville or 10.75 point Bembo. Writes, plays, and records electronic music under the moniker Gestalt Tone Color, and as part of the Underworld Oscillator Corporation.
Past freelance clients include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Reader’s Digest UK, First Second Books/Macmillan, Kaplan Publishing, Open Road Integrated Media, WFMU Radio, and Anthology Film Archives. Illustration and cartooning recognized by The New Yorker‘s Culture Desk blog and by Varoom! Magazine in the United Kingdom.
Also got lightly patted in the back by the Sundance Film Festival and Rotterdam International Film Festival for film scoring and soundtrack work. (But that’s neither here nor there. This is strictly a sound-free website, though there’s plenty to look at and quite a bit to read as well. However, there’s nothing stopping you from heading over to his SoundCloud page, if you want to get diverted.)
