In 2006 she started illustrating as a pro working for magazines, books and advertising for clients such as The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Elle, Wendy´s and Nokia.
"I try to tell different stories with my drawings. I try to connect with the viewer telling tales. Some of the pieces (the cat drawings) came from a book published in Spain, the story by the great french writer Émile Zola was beautiful and really inspiring. The rest of the pieces are personal work, some of them published." - Raquel Aparicio
