Raquel Aparicio


I was born in Ávila with my twin sister Shae. After spending a few years in Edinburgh I came back to Spain to study illustration. I am still deciding where I want to live.

In 2006 I started illustrating as a pro working for magazines like Elle, Quo, Yo Donna, Ragazza, Calle 20, Chow, Looc and and some institutions such as La Junta de Castilla y león, La Diputación de Valladolid...

I work in a variety of media exploring diferent styles, producing illustrations, animations and comics.
The results have been selected in several juried competitions: Illustration west 45, Injuve 2006, CineJoven 2006, Opel Corsa Animate 2006, Portugalete Comic 2006, Expocomic 2005, Argaya 2005, Artejoven 2005 and best picture book from the Art School of Valladolid 2005.

Raquel loves japanese woodcuts, cats, books, comics, creepy animation movies and Raúl Allen
