Irene Blasco – Designer

Award-winning illustrator and designer with experience in book cover illustration, editorial illustration and children picture books.


I'm an award-winning illustrator and designer based in Valencia, Spain. I have worked in advertising, press and publishing media.
My style is colorful, powerful with a touch of elegance and mystery. I like to work with digital media as if they were analog tools, maintaining the textures and strokes of the brushstrokes.
I am easy to work with, I easily capture what the client needs and I know how to materialize it into an image. With colorful, stylish and professional illustrations I help my clients to stand out.
I also pride myself on keeping on schedule.
