About me

Yay! I’m Lucía and I’m a Lettering Artist and Illustrator based in Málaga (Spain). I usually love to take my part on the Feminist struggle with powerful and colourful messages drawn by hand-crafted typography and creative lettering. I also find inspiration in my favourite TV Shows, rock music and ironic motivational quotes that make you laugh. I love trying different styles and using super bright colours no matter the technique: digital, serigraphy, markers or acrylics. My references include international publications like Geek Art Book-An Anthology (Volume 3), Graffica and collaborations with Principia Magazine, Creative Digest or Staf Magazine. I'm available for commisions, collaborations and will be happy to help you as artistic adviser!

          • Málaga, Spain
          • Freelance
          • Born for joining every female lettering artist as possible, Typing Feminism is a project where each single participant has to show her own view about feminism by lettering a quote/motto. It has to identify her as feminist, something that makes her feel powerful as woman. Definitely, a quote that she thinks everybody needs to know for supporting women in our feminist fight (and use in their lifes, because everybody should be feminist).Typing Feminism is a project for putting different portfolio artworks together to get a collective project completely made by free women who want to have fun with a good cause... And show it to the world! At first, it was figured out as a Women’s Day Project, but feminism is not a thing for March or Women’s Day only. A lot of women around the world are feeling identified and interested about the project, so it has became an ongoing project which will keep killin’it until the last female lettering artist is involved!
