Any question or commission?
Feel free to contact me at:
I’m Eva, a freelance illustrator born and raised in Spain. I specialise in editorial illustration, having published several picture books for children, designed a number of book covers and drawn artwork for a variety of written articles.
My favourite projects are those that allow me to express the graphic language of an eerie, strange and beautiful story.
I love storytelling, so in addition to drawing, I enjoy writing my own tales and poems, always adding a touch of darkness, which I then self-publish as small fanzines.
When I’m not drawing, I like reading sci-fi, horror and fantasy novels. My dream is to live in a snowy city so I can drink hot chocolate and pet my cat all day.
When I was little, I dreamed of being something that could fly.
So where did you belong?
Spending whole afternoons playing outside, making up ghost stories, enjoying the smell of turpentine, listening to swallows’ songs and cycling uphill. Now it’s more or less the same, but with coffee.
Where do you find inspiration?
I love scary, dark and somewhat strange stories. I like hidden messages, those elusive times when everything seems to be between clear states, and blood oaths. I used to draw some recurring nightmares and poetic bitterness. I prefer stories told in the moonlight, wrapped in blankets.
How did you become an illustrator?
I have a degree in Plastic Arts and Design from EASD in Valencia. I’ve worked at the art department in two advertising agencies, and for a local newspaper with national presence.
I’ve loved drawing since high school, but I didn’t realise that it could be a way of life until I was already working. Since then, I’ve published some beautiful books and worked with several magazines.
Do you have any advice?
Be constant, don’t give up, have patience and discipline :3
