    Happy summer everyone!

    I'm SO happy about this post! A long time ago I was really lucky that Bronwen Fallens asked me to work on the illustrations for a beautiful children book that she wrote about alternative families. She was thinking about a series of books about this subjet and she wanted to start with a story called "My super single mum". The story was so wonderful and sweet, like she is, that I said YES right away. After spending a while trying to sell it to different editorials, we decided that we should self-publish it and sell it ourselves. And here we are, presenting our first book together, "My super single mum", that you can check on the new section of this site that I opened especially for the occasion. Also, you can read more about the project, and about us and even buy the book in our brand new website Bronny and Muntsa.

    Also, for the lucky ones in Australia Bronny'll soon be presenting the book in the "Family Life Home & Cafe" in Prahran. Stay tuned on the events section of the site

    Hope you enjoy the book as much as we do!

    ***Thanks so much Bronny for taking me on this adventure, and for your incredible creativity and tireless energy!Love to you and Alexis!!****

    Happy spring everyone!

    I'm very happy to add to my portfolio a new work as a colorist for Marvel Comics. I teamed up again with the super talented artist (and again the cutest in the bussiness) Marcos Martin on a 14 page story for Captain America #50 .You can take the opportunity to check Marcos' beautiful art on this Captain America story called Sentinel of Liberty on the Book Section.

    Also I have new book cover for Destino that you can check in the Book section.

    The Bilioteca Ignasi Iglesias- Can Fabra, a great Public Library in Barcelona specialized in Comic Books, gave me the opportunity to exhibit some of my illustrations in a Micro-exhibit that took place from April 1st to May 15th. You can see the poster I did especially for the occasion on the Unpublished Section of the Portfolio. **Thanks everybody at Can Fabra! ****

    Also, I would like to recommend two new blogs from two wonderful friends. Please visit ManMakeHome and let Guy Merrill's exquisite taste guide you through the most beautiful objects, illustrations, the best architects and just amazing discoveries in art and design in general.

    And please visit Lluis Salles blog and be enlighted by his knowledge on the Graphic Design world. He is a Graphic Designer himself specialized in Branding and he is also a Teacher so you'll love his inside view of the bussiness and his pedagogical perspective.

    **From the beginning I wanted this website to keep growing and growing and add sections that could give a wider prespective of my work. So I decided to add a Painting section with a number of paintings I've been doing through the past years. They are basically portraits and still lives that are also a bit like short stories about people that I'd love to meet...! They are all acrylic and collage on paper. I used chinese papers I bought years ago in Chinatown as collage to add texture and to help create a more evocative atmosphere. As an illustrator it has always been my interest to represent the uniqueness in everyone, to portray non stereotypical situations where people try to follow their own particular dreams, people who don't belong and don't intend to. Hope you'll like it**

    September 2008

    Hope everyone had a great summer!

    I'm really happy to show more work in the book section. You'll find two illustrations I did a few months ago for the cover of two different books for young readers, published by Destino.*Gràcies Maria!

    Also, I had the pleasure to work with Clare Grogan in her upcoming book "Tallulah and the Teenstars", soon to be published by Black and White Publishing, in Edinburgh.It's an incredibly cool and fun book and I had the chance to work on the cover and also in more than twenty inside illustrations. I'd like to thank everyone at Black and White for giving me the opportunity to work in the book and make everything so easy. And I especially want to thank Clare for choosing me for her project and for being so supportive and enthusiastic! *Thanks Alison! And thanks Clare, I just hope my illustrations did your story justice!;-)

    Also, new work for AR in the lifestyle section.

    And for those interested in illustration, please, visit IllustrationMundo. It's an amazing website, run by the talented Nate Williams. It's an illustrators community and it offers the opportunity to approach lots of talented illustrators around the world and also other professionals related to the illustration world, like designers, agents,etc. Please go and enjoy!

    ***Have fun!***

      March 2008

      So, a whole year since my last updating...that's pretty embarassing!

      The good news are that I have a lot of new work to show!;)

      You can check all the new illustrations for Clara and Ragazza magazines in the lifestyle section of the portfolio and for AR magazine in the fashion section of the portfolio.

      I also have new work for the advertising section where you can check the illustrations for the Tampax leaflet I did last summer. *Muchas gracias a Alejandro Hernán de Vitruvio Leo Burnett por la oportunidad!

      I'm also incredibly excited about the new work for the book section. I've had the honor of being part of the upcoming book: "Bringing Home the Birkin, My life in hot pursuit of the most coveted handbag" by Michel Tonello and published by Harper Collins. I illustrated the cover and I also did the inside illustrations so I can't thank enough to everyone at Harper Collins for the opportunity, and specially to Michael Tonello who chose me for the project. It is a wonderful and incredibly fun book so if you want to know more about it you can check the author's website, and for those people fortunate enough to live in New Yor City, Michael will be presenting the book in Barnes and Noble on April 23rd. *Thanks again to Cassie Jones at Harper Collins for the opportunity **Thanks Michael for letting me be part of your wonderful book and for the pleasure of workig with you!!

      Enjoy spring everyone!

      Hello Everyone!

      I'm especially happy with this month's updatings, because they are very special and quite unusual projects!

      First you can check, in the Fashion section, the new work for Ragazza. This time, they asked four different artists to custumize four different denim clothes. I shared the honour with Jordi Labanda, Daniel Burgos and Ion Fiz. You'll see that I added some more detailed pictures of my proposal so you can fully appreciate it. *thanks to the people from Ragazza, it was a lot of fun!!

      And the other fun project was the comicbook anthology "I heart Marvel: my mutant heart". I teamed up with my boyfriend Marcos Martin, also the artist, in the coloring of Peter Milligan's eight page story "How love works", published by Marvel Comics.

      Hope you enjoy it!

      * Bye bye!
