Melania Badosa

Hello there! I’m Melania Badosa, a freelance illustrator and comic artist based in Barcelona.


I've always loved to draw my own universe since I was a child. The first time I saw a book with my illustrations in a bookstore I realized that it was the only thing I wanted to do in my life. During this time, I’ve worked for publishers including Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, editorial Planeta, and Hinkler Australia, as well as illustrating for independent publications and comic books.

Rock music, cats and spooky stuff are my other passions and I like to add these elements to my illustrations whenever possible.

I use to work digitally for the infinite possibilities it gives, but my studio is full of sketchbooks and I go with pencils and watercolours whenever I can.
