Try not to smile when scrolling through Blanca Gómez’s Instagram page. We dare you! Her illustrations are full of child-like candor, that make us long for the golden days of childhood.
Based in Madrid, Spain Gómez started drawing when she was just a child. “When I was little I would draw all day long like many kids do and my parents enrolled me in a painting academy,” she shared with Grain Edit.
“It was in Milan that I became interested in graphic design. I remember attending an eye-opening exhibition of Milton Glaser’s work and somehow finally figuring out what I should do. When I returned to Madrid I enrolled in evening classes at a design school while I wrapped up my publicity studies. I was in classes all day until 11 P.M. and it was very exhausting but well worth it in the end.”
Now represented by Writer House for book projects in the US, Gómez’s illustrations are adored worldwide.
