I am Valeshka Escalona, a 33-yearold illustrator based in Galicia, Spain.

My love for illustrating comes from the stories I read as a child. I loved everything about the book images but I cannot forget, of course, one of my greatest influences, Disney.

I grew up studying art as I wanted to be an artist and study Fine Arts.  For more than 10 years, I have worked in Graphic Design and illustration, creating textile patterns, illustrations of fashion collections, and logos illustrated in watercolour and digital, plus much more.

My dream, which was always to illustrate children's stories and dedicate myself to 2D and 3D animation, has finally come true. I’m living my dream!





Vakeshka designed the logo and branding for my organic products brand. She designed the product labels & 3D mock-ups for my website, plus the posters and Ads for social media networks. Her work was excellent, showing great ability at mixing graphic design with illustrations. She listened to my ideas, delivering a great product. I will definitely work with her again.

I cannot say enough about Valeshka. I loved the little details she added to the illustrations that I hadn’t even thought about. She presented me with a rough sketch for approval, kept in close communication throughout the process and produced the perfect results for my illustrated books. I am planning on working with her again in the very near future.
