I’m a Barcelona based self-taught artist creating and drawing everyday because it makes me laugh, think and love and I want to share that!
My original style draw upon such diverse sources as Symbolism and Surrealism, Slapstick movies, Classic Hollywood musicals, ’40s and ’50s cartoon movies, Japanese manga and anime, Spanish and Franco-Belgian comics, Vintage toys and paperdolls. My main inspiration is Nature, specially birds.
The journey to illustration began in 2006 when shaping my own world full of storytelling characters that were applied to everything, from books to games, tshirts or stickers under my own brand colorcrema® and other commissioned projects. The first success was the concept book “Femmes Super Fatales” followed by “Hombres Super Fatales” and then an international one, the illustrations for packaging cookies brand “Paul and Pippa”.
Sometimes I develop the whole project (concept, content and illustrations) or just the illustrations. I enjoy creating worlds!
