HI! I’M JÚLIA

I am an illustrator and a graphic designer from Barcelona. I started drawing
 seriously when I was working at the ticket office in a cinema (not glamorous at
 all). Between film sessions I had a lot of spare time, too many books to read and
 a pencil.

At the beginning I read a lot. Then I started to feel too intellectual and I took 
a ticket and I draw a face behind. After that, I did a lot of other faces and I realized that drawing was my passion. After
 this revelation I studied graphic design and I worked in super cool digital and 
independent advertising agencies and I became the IKEA‘s art director at HerraizSoto.

As an illustrator I’ve been working for several clients and agencies worldwide. I love to work in advertising, I love the stress, the crazy timings and I enjoy being part of the creative process.

I studied for
 a Masters of Arts in Creative Illustration and Communication at the EINA’s 
University.

In 2015 I attended to a program in illustration and storytelling at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

More punk and less cupcakes is my motto in life.
