With work that’s colourful, slightly naïve and full of charm, the Barcelona-based artist Iratxe Lopez de Munain launched her creative career by writing and illustrating her own children’s book in 2010. Today she works for a variety of publishing houses and agencies – illustration is her passion, and it’s a way of life. It seems she was destined to create these vibrant artworks. Her mother was a painter and Iratxe was always stealing her coloured pencils and working on her own drawings. Her favourite topic at the time was animals, but today she’ll draw just about anything and will make it eye-catching.
