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 journey to illustration began a long, long time ago when shaping my own world full of stories, characters and games. In 2006 I created, together with my sisters, the brand colorcrema®. Storytelling characters were applied to everything, from books to games, t-shirts or stickers. Success came with the humorous books about personality types “Femmes Super Fatales” and “Hombres Super Fatales”. This was followed by international recognition with the illustrations for packaging cookies brand “Paul and Pippa”.
More commissioned work came during these years, which led me to set up my own. This has sometimes meant developing a whole project (concept, content and illustrations) and other times just the illustrations. I really enjoy creating worlds!
I specialize in Editorial Illustration, Children’s Fiction, Illustrated Products, Illustrated Branded Content, Character Design, Cartoons, Portraits and Concept Art for an Animated TV Show!
Finally, two more things! I’d like to tell you that in my original style line is the most important thing, more specially the expression, then the color to focus you on details.
My main inspiration is nature and day to day life! Others sources are Symbolism and Surrealism, Slapstick movies, Classic Hollywood musicals, ’40s and ’50s cartoon movies, Japanese manga and anime, Spanish and Franco-Belgian comics, Vintage toys, Stickers, Board Games and Paper Dolls, of which I have a large collection.
Very welcome to my world full of imagination, fun and tenderness!
