Bio English

Cristina García Ganga

I am a freelance illustrator living in Spain. Drawing is my passion since I was a child. At the age of 18, I left my hometown, Sax (Alicante) Spain, to study Advertising in Madrid. I wanted to be in the Graphic World.

In those first years, I found Rock and Roll in Malasaña and its aesthetics caught my eye. I started to paint psychedelic posters with fictional concerts and I went to look for work in the Rock music environments of the late 80’s

After completing my studies I worked for many years in the advertising world as a freelance illustrator for agencies such as Contrapunto, Tapsa, Ogilvy, CP Comunicación, Solución, ARS Network … I made illustrations for clients such as Telefónica, JB, Cepsa, Movistar, FedEx, Heineken, Foster Hollywood, etc. I also did works for the publishers Edaf and Unidad Editorial (Journal «El Mundo»).

I like to work with different styles and techniques. I handle Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, pencils, brushes, waxes, pens and lately I also use mache paper to make Catrinas. You could say that I am versatile!

I hope you enjoy my art as much as I do!
