Hi! I'm Alba, a comic book artist from Galicia (Spain) and I live in London (UK). I'm the creator of The Earth Blues Series, an ecologically conscious collection of futuristic and fantastic comics inspired by climate change. Some of the titles are Marghera Blues, about two mermaids that lived in a toxic lagoon until humans mysteriously vanished; Forehead Blues minicomic, about a man who turned into an outlaw after losing his money in Venice; and Salamanca Blues, in which the main characters escape from an ancient Spanish city that has fallen under the power of a sect worshiping enormous lizards. I self-published Salamanca Blues last year via crowdfunding on Indiegogo and it's now available in a number of shops in London, A Coruña and Salamanca (see the list of stores here). You can read here the Salamanca Blues review written by Andy Oliver at Broken Frontie and here a review about my Earth Blues short comics. I'm currently working on the long-form comic of Forehead Blues.
I'm a member of WIP Comics group, a collective of UK-based artist and some of my mini-comics are in two of their anthologies: The Lucky Horn, an unfoldable comic which is part of the 2021 Lucky WIP Anthology Collection and that has led me to do my first motion comic (watch it here). And MoonFall, which is part of the 2022 WIP XL Anthology. I'm one of Broken Frontier' Six to Watch Artists 2022.
If you want to know more about my art, check My Portfolio. I'm a visual development artist and apart from comics, I create concept art, illustrations, storyboards and 3D characters with Blender. I practice life drawing everyday and have a website for this, check it here! I have an ongoing lifedrawing project called "Life Drawing on the Underground" which I recently exhibited at the Royal College of Art, find out more here
I'm also an Adobe Mentor since 2015 and I give feedback and advice about drawing, illustration, visual storytelling, comics, concept art and digital painting on Discord's Adobe Creative Careers Server. If you are interested on 1 to 1 mentoring or would like feedback on your work, DM me on Discord!
