Overview

I am a freelance illustrator based in Madrid (Spain), specialized in digital illustration, and with more than 10 years of experience working for international brands such as L'Oréal, Unicef or Nike. My work has also been published in magazines like Traveler, Vogue or MStyle, the lifestyle publication from Meliá Hotels International.

I also majored in journalism, and worked in communication and PR for several years before establishing myself as an illustrator. I find this background really useful, as it helps me understand the client's briefing and adapt my work to correctly communicate their stories and ideas.

My style benefits greatly from using digital software, such as Procreate or Adobe Photoshop, as it lets me combine, create and adapt artistic brushes and textures to the story to create beautiful effects. When choosing a project I appreciate not only the story, but also the creative aesthetic of the author about the style and design of the project.

In book design and illustration, I admire the work of authors such as Roald Dahl & Quentin Blake, Jean-Jacques Sempé or Daniel Handler (as Lemony Snicket); and publishing houses like Phaidon, Penguin or Taschen.

I wish I could give Felix 10 stars!! He worked so carefully on my project it was as if it was his own. Felix entertained all of my ideas and ended up giving me so many of his own for my book cover. He consistently went above and beyond throughout our entire collaboration and I will treasure the final product more than he will know! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
