From 1979, he made his first comics in cooperation with writer Ernesto Padrón Blanco, such as 'Viaje de Exploración a un Extraño Dibujo' and 'Inés, Aldo y Beto en: La emboscada'. Orestes proved to be capable to draw in several styles, varying from realism to grotesque humour and tender children's stories.
