Jose R Ibáñez

Is a digital illustrator and graphic designer born, raised and based in Madrid (Spain). Ever since he was a little kid he’s been drawn to the arts, from amateur ballet dancing to writing and illustrating his own stories. After graduating from a double major in Advertising and Audiovisual Communication, he started working as a graphic designer and creative for major brands in the luxury, fashion and technological sectors.

However, he’s passion has always resided within illustration. As a self-taught artist he has found multiple sources of inspiration: from the magical stories of ancient myths, whimsical folklore tales; to fashion photography, pop culture and indie music. His favorite things to illustrate are those fueled by mystery and magic. 

Some of his illustration clients include
Scholastic, Michael O’Mara Books or Sunshine Books. 

When he’s not drawing (which is most of the time) you can probably find him reading a good book, listening to a podcast, or walking his two dogs in the park.
