Since I can remember, I have always wanted to draw.
While studying at school, I remember on one occasion, one of my teachers told me something that I did not understand at the time but, somehow, I knew would have a great impact on my life. She told me: “you have a gift, but you also have the obligation to always do everything in your power to preserve it and to achieve your goals. You must work hard to achieve them, and as you do so, you will be making use of this gift …”
At eighteen I began my studies in Fine Arts, with great eagerness to learn what would lead me later to hold two exhibitions as an individual artist: Drawing the other side of the black cinema shown in the halls of Kinepolis cinemas, Granada, in 2011 and the other, Cinema as drawing, in 2012.
I have recently worked as an illustrator creating a few book covers for indie authors, as well as other collaborations with Independent film companies such as Wet Toe Productions.
I'm currently publishing some articles for the art magazine “Arte individuo y sociedad” as part of my research thesis about film posters. All of my production is constantly changing and developing towards the search for new approaches and motivations. Now I´m working with Zum Zum Books on a beautiful project, which will give me the chance to became involved in an innovative and promising adventure!
The traditional book publishing + the new ebook technology
Zum Zum Books combines some of the best aspects of traditional book publishing with the new ebook technology to produce what we call handmade digital books.
The art we use in our ebooks is 'real art,' the kind you can put in a frame and hang on the wall. A lot more than pixels and vectors, or computer generated design, every piece of art in Zum Zum Books is unique and original. You can see it in the first book we published: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, illustrated by Frank Espinosa.
Our handmade illustrated digital books have been created by real artists in real studios using watercolors, oils, gouache, ink, pens, pencils, collage, claymation, photography, assemblage and just about any other media you can think of.
What do you have to look forward to at Zum Zum Books? We’re making a list of some of the most popular and in-demand classic books in the world to publish and, more importantly, to illustrate.
Here are some of our Coming Attractions!

It’s the Renaissance all over again – only better!
Most historians agree that the Renaissance started in Florence, Italy in the 14th century and continued through the 17th century . Aided by a new availability of paper and the invention of movable type and the printing press, the Renaissance profoundly changed the intellectual life of Europe. The movement influenced literature, philosophy, language, art, music, politics, science, religion and ideas.
The Renaissance was partly made possible by art patrons. Rulers, nobles and the wealthy often commissioned work from artists, musicians, philosophers, scholars and scientists. In fact, some of the most notable artists who benefited from this support included Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi and Donatello.
The Digital Renaissance
And would you believe it – it’s happening again! Only this time, culture is being reborn and redefined through a digital matrix. Zum Zum Books is on the leading edge of this technological revolution and wants you to be part of it too through our Art Patronage Program.
