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!

*The sun Rising*

sketcheando about everything last...Unruly sun

Volví a ver "El castillo ambulante" una novela que me encantaría leer de Diana Wynne Jones, y dirigida por Hayao Miyazaki, me volví a enamorar de Howl, el mago y de todo el increible universo que crea Miyazaki.

She's all states, and all princes I ;
Nothing else is
Princes do but play us ; compared to this,
All honour's mimic, all wealth alchemy.
Thou, Sun, art half as happy as we,
In that the world's contracted thus ;
Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be
To warm the world, that's done in warming us.
Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere ;
This bed thy center is, these walls thy sphere.

Also,yesterday I saw an amazing animation movie "The secret of Kells".
Every shot is just a wonderful piece of art, absolutely great.

The movie tells of how the (real-life) Book of Kells - an illuminated manuscript created by Celtic monks - came to be; although the real focus is on artistic imagination and perseverance. The awe-inducing illustration was also accompanied with an incredibly fitting soundtrack, resulting in an unbelievably rich mythological atmosphere.
