Maria Pichel (1987) 
illustrator and author

After 6 years of drawing and painting almost as a self-taught, I'm still finding my own language as an illustrator. I've been really scattered and restless, which I think helps me to be a multidisciplinar and eclectic artist, working different fine art materials as ink, gouache, linoleum printing, pyrography, watercolour and digital art.
My background as a Sociologist makes me focus in social issues and communication. I've collaborated with different groups in social exclusion as sex workers, under-payed housekeepers, women in gender violence situation and environmentalist defenders. Nowadays I'm an active collaborator of Femiñetas, a bimensual gender issues newspaper based in illustration and comics. 
2020 has been a year to stop, and to stake out my career with this big economical crisis due to the pandemic of Covid19. I took a course with Ilustrando Dudas that helped me a lot to redirect my career and find some directions to go. So at this time I'm working in a variety of portfolios focusing in different markets that I hope I can show here soon. And I  started my career as a tattoo artist too! 
Until I can upload new thinks, I hope you enjoy my personal projects in this page.

I'm open to different collaborations, projects and works, so don't hesitate to write me:
Después de 6 años de dibujar y pintar casi como autodidacta, todavía estoy encontrando mi propio lenguaje como ilustradora. He sido muy dispersa e inquieta, lo que creo que me ayuda a ser una artista multidisciplinar y ecléctica, trabajando con diferentes materiales como la tinta china, el gouache, la serigrafía, el pirograbado, la acuarela o el arte digital.
