I’m an spanish illustrator based in Madrid, I graduated in Fine Arts from U.P.V Valencia and I also studied at the University of Applied Sciences from Mainz (Germany), I did my intership in Bruxeles and a master of Plastic Art Education at the Complutense University of Madrid, lately I specialize in Shoe Design in Elche. Actually I'm working as a shoe designer.

My work is hand drawn mostly with black pencils, I love graphic novels, comics and old style,a mix between "trashy" and "naif" with tons of humor, you also can guess I work in fashion industry as I love to play with it a lot (patterns, colours, shapes, clothes…)

I’m also a current illustrator of the cinema magazine La Critica NY and I create the feminist blog My erudite pussy with a neurotic woman, the writer crazy mind.

Please feel free to contact me for a commission, a collaboration, or just a chat!

where the wild things are...


Book illustration by: Maurice Sendak


The illustration book was already amazing...when i knew about Spike Jonze was doing in the big screen i just collapse myself. The fantastic Mr.Fox (Wes Anderson), Alice in wonderland (Tim Burton) and now this wonderful piece!
This last picture remind me so much the poster that i made for "Waiting for Godot"...
