ABOUT

Hola! I'm Marcelo and I'm a queer, Mexican multi-creative author working on picture books. I graduated from Art Center College of Design and I like to tell stories from unconventional perspectives. 

 

In college I fell in love with kids books and since then I see them as a great opportunity to give the tiny ones valuable tools and a strong foundation to navigate this word with kindness, openness, and compassion.

I play when I'm creating. My practice starts with a lot of easily recognizable elements for kids –paper textures, cutouts, crayons, and bright colors– in order to create an accessible visual language for them. Then, I digitally edit my compositions until I feel a big smile drawn on my face. If it's not making me smile, it's not ready! 

 

I live in Los Angeles, California but I'm often traveling in my pink spaceship to outer space, where my dog daughter, Mini Perra, currently resides. We love to drink strawberry milk together and stargaze.
