Illustrations for the children's book "Anjlee and the magical mouse" for a client living in the US, but originally from India. The story is about a girl who meets a magical mouse which grants her 3 wishes: to meet her true love, to marry with him, and to have a baby together. I've used some elements from old Indian miniatures style, simplified and adapted to a children's book to give the whole book a playful style... And this is the result :-)

These days I'm very busy with different projects, small but each one different from the other, so it's fun!
For example, this forest illustration. It was a lot of fun walking through the forest around my village looking for inspiration! :-)

Manjaria is a magazine given once a month with the newspaper Diario de Mallorca.
Done with ink and Photoshop.
It feels so good to have them physically in my hands, not only as a pdf in my computer screen! :-D
Thanks to the "Self-publishing of books" course done at CRCC and to our teacher Dani Cardona! Printed at Impremta Politècnica from Palma (Mallorca)

My proposal for the second number of the digital fanzine Pandemia. The subject this time was the "essence", so the inspiration for this illustration came from the idea that we all have the same essence of life running through our veins. We are all made from the same matter, in essence we are the same and we share the same soul than, for example, a flower.
Done with color pencils, 29,7 x 21 cm.

This painting was quite difficult for me, since it only was the second time in my life I was using gouache! I was more used to watercolor, so the change was a bit like a challenge. At some stages I was getting crazy with the painting, because the colors mix very different than with watercolor, and the result wasn't appearing like I wanted... But in the end I manage to finish it, don't I know it could be much better but it took me already several days... And I'm quite happy with the final result! :-)

Finally done! The illustrations for the book of adult short stories "(Des)conectados", done with my friend and writer Carlos Rojas Olivos (traselvidrio.blogspot.com). Very different from all what I've done till the moment, realistic drawings (which is the most difficult for me) and just in black and white. No butterflies, faeries and colors for once! :-D
