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!

What's in a name?


Ernesto y yo

this is a incredible piece of "American Splendor" movie:


I did the same yesterday by mistake in facebook, and 3 years ago just 3 Clara Santos appear in te FB but yesterday while a friend was trying to find me one thousand of Clara Santos appear in the screen...so, how many clara santos are just in Madrid? in spain? in europe? in the world?...

I saw American Splendor last night,looking for nerd culture in internet x my next work, and i discover how interesting your life can be if you make it interesting, this is what i love about creative people, they aren't waiting for the things happend, they are making everything happend.
The words and draw could be more than an artistic form,like in french movies...or De Sica in Italy...so i tried to write some stuff about real life, about your own life...
you turn into your own comic hero
nothing false, everything it's real, common things
"you should try believing in something bigger than yourself"

Every day is a brand new deal, right? you just keep on working in something new it's going to happend...
