¡Hola! I'm an illustrator based in Spain. I enjoy drawing both traditional and digital techniques. I love learning new things and topics I do like are reading, travelling, good food and laughing a lot.

I studied Fine Arts, and after finishing my degree, I realized that this kind of art was not made for me, so I focused my career in web and graphic design.

I studied Fine Arts, and after finishing my degree, I realized that this kind of art was not made for me, so I focused my career in web and graphic design.

I lived a few years in Jordan, where I used to work for the main European cultural centres. These centres allowed me to work in my own way; I started to include my own drawings and illustrations in most publications.

My work is aimed at set off to editorial area. I move in two ways: illustrations for magazines and literature texts in one hand, and images for children in the other hand.

Style:
My illustrations are quite figurative, I love human bodies and I seldom stand out the background. In the representation of a text I use a narrative rhythm and avoid highly abstract concepts. Sometimes I resort to symbolism and also humor. Usually, my images do not have so many elements, in fact most of time they have just one. Flat and clean colours, no too saturated and sometimes mixed with a texture.

Techniques:
For professional assignments I use digital techniques, working on previous sketches on paper. However, for personal drawings I use more traditional techniques such as graphite, ink, watercolor or acrylic. Read Less
