I suppose you are also part of this polygamous marriage between Illustrated Literature and us, the ones who love it. And you are looking for support to get more wives and husbands for our mutual spouse. Trust me to achieve your goal. When I married Illustrated Literature I knew that jealousy could not be part of this relationship, and that passion is not enough to keep it steady and lasting. It is fundamental to add more lovers, mutual collaboration, and personal discipline.
Therefore, count on my constant attention; also count on my full commitment regarding quality, quantity and on-time delivery of all my creative tasks; finally, do not hesitate to share your constructive and honest feedback with me. Honesty is a value I foster and practice in all my relationships.
Maybe you still feel hesitant, after all, trust comes from knowledge. So, let me introduce myself: ¡Hello! I'm Niño Lobo KC, now I'm an illustrator and a writer; but before I married Illustrated Literature, I studied Philosophy for such a long time that I obtained two Master degrees. In Mexico, my home country, I got one of them; in Spain, where I currently live, I got the other one.
I have a fascination for vintage illustration, especially Edmund Dulac's and Arthur Rackham's. Their style influences my choice of ink and watercolor. However, in opposition to the literal interpretation approach they portrayed in their work, I tend to give a metaphoric interpretation to mine.
Whichever the case may be, my process is similar: I begin translating my reading of a story into a bunch of thumbnails. After, I choose the best one and I work tenaciously on it, until I have a final sketch. Then, I trace this one on watercolor paper to later add color and ink. At last, I scan the final piece, and I try to visually match the digital file with the original illustration.
You will find more information and examples of my process on this website. I invite you to explore it. If you are not convinced yet, I am sure you will find whatever you are missing to feel reassured.
