Valencia, Spain

Malota is only happy when she’s drawing – well, that’s not true: she’s also happy when she’s giving lectures about drawing and her work as an illustrator. Mar Hernandez (that’s her full name, by the way) first approaches her projects from a conceptual angle and takes the time to reflect on the intellectual components to elaborate her illustrations. Her style is versatile and personal, colorful and optimistic and her work rich in details and textures. As she never runs out of creativity or energy, she also works on projects related to design, music and ceramics.
