About Raquel

I was born in Avila with my twin sister Sae 24 years ago. After spending a few years in Edinburgh I came back to Spain to study illustration and attended one year of the illustration Academy in Florida. In 2006 I started illustrating as a pro working for magazines, books and advertising. For a while I taught a collage illustration workshop at the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid.

I work in a variety of media exploring diferent styles, producing illustrations, animations and comics. The results have been selected in several juried competitions: Communication Arts, American illustration, Society of Illustrators 50, Illustration West 45, Injuve 2009, CineJoven 2006, Opel Corsa Animate 2006.
