I’m starting a blog!

APRIL 1, 2024

Today I am writing the very first entry of my blog, and I'm not sure who I should address. I don't know who you are, I don't know who's reading on the other side of the screen, but I sense that if you've ended up here, it's because you're interested in what I have to say, so I’ve decided to write to you as if I were writing to a friend: Hi!

It's quite possible that if you've come this far, it's because you already know me, either in person or through social media, but just in case, let me introduce myself: my name is Alicia (that's an easy one), I'm an illustrator (that one too), I studied Design and Creative Technologies in Valencia and I spent a year studying illustration in London, where little by little I discovered a world that, although it had always caught my attention, I never imagined could end up being my job.

I could tell you that I love to draw, but you may have already come to that conclusion on your own. What you might not know is that I'm a stay-at-home kind of person and I love plants, hugs, reading, listening to music, taking walks in nature, and lying on the couch at the end of an exhausting day. I think this could be a good summary of the the person hiding behind her drawings.

For some time now, I've wanted to start a blog: a place where I can talk about the things that interest me and everything I'm discovering on this journey called life as a freelance illustrator. I've never felt that social media was made for me, and little by little I found in my newsletter a place where I could update people about the little things I'm doing, and from now on, I want to extend this to this section of my website as well.

I don't wanna get into too much detail today; I'd rather save all the juicy stuff for later entries. Thanks for dropping by! I'll keep you posted. 😊🌸
