Alicia Pinapali – Designer

Designer and illustrator specializing in YA/Adult fantasy and romance book covers.


Hello! I'm Alicia, a designer and illustrator based in sunny Seville (Spain). I live with two little cat goblins and I love reading, watching animated series, playing games and running.

I have four years of experience as a digital artist. I have worked on children and adult animated TV series, I have done concept art for animation and games and I have illustrated and designed adult and YA book covers.

I've always been a huge reader and I love working on book covers (isn't it a great excuse to read even more books?). My style is very cosy and colourful and I love lettering. If you'd like a cute cover I'm your artist! I love making unique pieces that make the audience warm and happy. I'm very interested in YA and adult fantasy and romance but I'm open to any projects that could fit my style!

If you choose to work with me I'd love to know all the information and references you can share about your project, your budget and the deadline for it. Don't be afraid of sending a lot of materials, there's never too much info! I want to get your vision right :)

Looking forward to collaborating on fun projects! Have a lovely day and thank you for checking my profile.
