Born in Ávila, a city in the hills north-west of Madrid, Raquel Aparicio began working as a professional illustrator in 2006, producing drawings for advertising, magazines, and books. It is the latter that inspires her more than anything else. A great lover of literature and a devourer of books, Raquel, through her art, succeeds in what many fail by trying, enclosing in a sheet of paper a story long pages and pages.
Her illustrations, characterized by colors not too strong, but present and graceful traits, are perfect for any occasion and for any subject.
With a few strokes, Raquel Aparicio manages to transport us into a world, her world, made of stories, narratives, characters, and action. It’s like being suddenly catapulted into an endless library, but instead of books, there are thousands and thousands of illustrations.
We have selected some of them and you can find them below, but we suggest you go and have a look at her site, where you will find much, much more.
