Why did you make this work:
This work is a calendar for the educational program “Musaraña” held by Thyssen Bornemisza. Musaraña is a community of teachers to share and experience new educational and artistic practices with other teachers and creators. The image to communicate the activities of all the year was thought as a classic calendar in which the lower part could be cut. On the back is all the rest of the information.

How was the illustration used:
It was used as a piece of communication for the annual program.

How did you make this work:
It is made with digital techniques and printed in three-color riography.

Currently Based:
Bilbao, Basque country.

I studied BBAA at the Univerty of Basque Country. After I did a master's degree in graphic design of magazines at the European Institute of Design in Madrid, a training that I combined with the work as a graphic designer. Currently I work as an illustrator and graphic designer in Bilbao and since 2013 in charge of my own studio, specializing in social and feminist issues. Among my most prominent projects are the image of “Musaraña” for Educa Thyssen Bornemisza, the image of the 8M campaign for Red Cross Youth or the image of “UDHA” for Tabakalera Donostia. I have also been awarded with a scholarship by the Basque government for the realization of my first graphic novel.
