I am absolutely in love with the work of José Luis Ágreda. Born in Seville, Spain He is an illustrator and cartoonist working in editorial, advertising and publishing. He has worked on a children book series called Carla, which has 14 titles to date. Mr. Ágreda also received the Best Spanish Comic award at the Barcelona and Madrid comic shows for his graphic novel Cosecha Rosa, and is currently working on it’s follow up.
Mr. Ágreda’s style varies, his children book art is very distinct to his editorial pieces. His colours can range from using just tones of a single colour all the way to full colour. A consistent element throughout his work are his fluid stylised shapes. This simplified and abstracted style allows his work floats between child-friendly and mature themes effortlessly.
