Heroines of everyday life

Spanish illustrator and comics author Maria Herreros created a unique illustrating style through her painting craft skills.

Based in Barcelona, Herreros creates a number of mostly portrait-themed images. Focusing on details, she tries to find a balance between beauty and grotesque. She picked a selection of her most powerful illustrations fitting to our “Body” topic. As she says: “Ease menstrual pain, be happy.”

Through a creamy and natural colour palette, she portrays famous female heroes as Frida Kahlo, Carrie Fisher, or Audrey Hepburn as well as ordinary girls – the heroines of everyday life. Her illustrations has been published in many fashion magazines, for example in our favourite Minchō Magazine.
