Maitane Bautista – Designer

I'm a children’s book illustrator who brings each character's adventurous spirit to life through digital techniques.



I'm Maitane, a children’s book illustrator and graphic designer based in northern Spain.

I began my career collaborating with the Ibaizabal publishing house, contributing to textbooks and children’s literature. My illustration style stands out for portraying little characters as brave and adventurous heroes, promoting friendship and bravery.

I truly love mixing colours and textures in digital media to stimulate the imagination of young readers.
