Each illustration by Conxita Herrero is delicious in colour palette and context. Whether she is creating an ode to singer Daniel Johnston or a landscape piece with a dreamy gradient sky, Conxita’s illustrational prowess shines through.
The multi-talented illustrator “draws, makes fanzines, writes poems and songs,” catching the eye of Vice and El País Tentaciones. She also collaborates with underground fanzines, creating her own publication Great Ball of Icecream with Apa Apa Comics.
The true charm in Conxita’s illustrations is her ability to convey a mood or subject in the simplest of drawings. One of her pieces, a bedroom with a wonky picture frame placed on the wall, a made bed and tables placed neatly either side, is personable in how uncomplicated it is. Stylistically Conxita uses a varied colour palette to display her own egocentricities. Minty greens are placed next to pale pinks, and rather than applying texture to represent clothing she draws neat lines to depict jeans or the pleats in a shirt.
The variety of Conxita’s work means she is a very exciting illustrator to discover, with a massive archive to dive into and admire.
