Cristina Alonso is an international illustrator who works with a wide range of high profile clients and commercial brands in the luxury, fashion and beauty industries. She has illustrated many advertising campaigns, magazines, books and exclusive products all around the world.
Her artwork has not only been published by renowned publishers such as Penguin Random House (illustrating the style manual of the iconic videoblogger Patry Jordan - 'Secretos de Chicas') or ANAYA Multimedia, but also has been presented at the Luxury Gift Lounge in the New York Fashion Week '14. Her original pieces of art have varied in scale from the size of a postcard to the expanse of an entire stand.
Glamorous, lyrical, and feminine, her style features detailed drawings with elegant colour palettes. Blurring the lines between traditional and digital, she combines pencil, ink and watercolour with digital techniques to create pieces with an unique flair.
Cristina has a Bachelor's Degree in Hispanic Philology and is University Specialist in Professional Illustration by the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
Currently she is based in Valencia (Spain), where she carries out a very intense artistic activity and manages a solid web presence.
