Overview

I am a freelance illustrator based in Madrid (Spain), with more than ten years of experience working for clients worldwide such as L'Oréal, Nike, Unicef, Condé Nast Traveler, Meliá Hotels International or Spanish publishing house RBA, for whom I illustrated the cooking book "100 Recetas Infalibles" by Spanish author Álvaro Castro.

I majored in journalism which is something I'm proud of and it really comes in handy when working in editorial illustration, as it gives me a different insight when understanding the author's intentions and how its words are aimed to move the reader.

I work mostly digitally, along with the author and through different drafts till we arrive to the desired idea. 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 book.

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!!
