"My name is Albert Pinilla and I was born in Barcelona in 1984. Since childhood have had a strong interest in drawing. In my free time I drew and in school I filled the margins of my notebooks with doodles. When I finished school I studied graphic design at Industries Grafiques Antoni Alguero then I studied ceramics a Escola d'arts i Oficis and sculpture at La Llotja.

Later I worked as a graphic designer and also as a personal assistant in schools. Currently I work full-time as an illustrator. have been working for publishing companies in Finland, Spain and the U.S. I do mostly children's book illustrations, doing the sketches by hand and colouring them with the computer, with a technique that makes the result look like handmade. After work spend time with my two daughters, my partner, friends and my piano."
