About the Illustrator

Mariajosé Gajate Molina

(Mariajo Ilustrajo)

Loving drawing since I can remember, I followed my passion studying illustration at the art school Arte10, in Madrid. I’ve been a freelance illustrator since then, completing projects for a wide range of clients. 

Learning never stops, so some years later I moved to Bath (UK), where I studied Graphic Communication at Bath Spa University. I enjoy learning new ways of working, developing new styles or just getting my hands dirty!

Nothing is more important than loving what you do (“sketcher, traveller and tea drinker”). I always carry a pencil and a notebook in my bag. Maybe you’ll find me doodling in a café.

Currently I am studying MA Children’s Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge to continue improving and having fun.
