    Spanish born illustrator, Emma Ríos, was a practising architect before she made the transition into comics. Starting off, as many do these day, by self-publishing a miniseries called A Prueba de Balas [Bulletproof]. Ríos’ self-published work and her contributions to fanzines caught the attention of Warren Ellis, who posted her work on his website, which in turn grabbed the attention of Matt Gagnon, offering Ríos a full miniseries at Boom! Studios.

    That miniseres was Hexed, which was released in 2009. Now, with multiple titles under her belt, including a few for Marvel Comics (Dr. Strange: Season One, Osborn, Runaways), Ríos is working on an original ongoing series called Pretty Deadly. Published by Image Comics, the series is notable for multiple reasons, not least its all-female creative team (hello 21st century…we have arrived).

    You can see lots of Emma Ríos’ work on her flickr.

    Born in Madrid, Spain, Irma Gruenholz creates marvellous hand-made clay models. Pastel-toned, with a hint of surrealism, her crafted illustrations have been used for books, magazines, advertisements, prototypes and props. Her pieces are made quite large and are a combination of materials including modelling clay, paper, metal, wood and a assortment of found objects.

    You can get an excellent behind-the-scenes view of the process on Gruenholz’s blog, and see more work on her website.

    Miguel kindly got in touch with us via our official facebook fan page and boy are we glad that he did.

    His rather surrealistic work is a joy to look at. Although its predominantly illustration it does have a graphical vibe. His good use of negative spaces, typography and layout make him a fantastic modern editorial illustrator. Although he studied for a degree in graphic design he is now taking a masters in illustration and animation. We look forward to seeing more from this fellow.
