I am a Spanish illustrator and painter and I have worked as a graphic designer for many years.
I often discover my inspiration in some dream, or a fleeting impression lost in my memory.
My work has also been much connected to the written word, and the rich and suggestive world of tales and stories.
I am specially attracted to portraying human beings, with an emphasis on character and attitude, and their relationship to their surroundings.

    Beuatiful light in this Lillo!! And it has something medieval somehow…I guess it’s the weay she is dressed. Lovely sketchy textures!

  • Thanks so much,Tine, this is a bit different, more like an sketch as you say, but I felt satisfied with the character of the girl.

    Ardiente, desafiante, madre de todas las castañeras, encerrada su humo particular, el pelo rojo cómo mandan los cánones de tu “mujer perfecta”. Todo gira hacia su rostro, que me recuerda a una flor de narciso, tierna y dura contra el frío del invierno.
    Rosa (preciosa)

  • Hola Rosa! Gracias, como siempre por tus espléndidos y poéticos comentarios. Un fuerte y cariñoso abrazo.Lillo
