about Rafael Alvarez

Being both an artist and a father, Rafael Alvarez is one of those trying to reconcile professional and private life, in his case, spending as much time as possible with his family and at the drawing desk — pretty much the two things in life he enjoys the most — which is often impossible and involves a certain compromise. Also, as a freelancer, he can be relatively flexible with his working hours as long as he can meet his deadlines, which often becomes both a blessing and a curse. Pulso is the name of a graphic novel he had in mind for a while, a story about the conflict between our own selfish goals and the rest of our lives.

Rafa is a Spanish illustrator living in Berlin. He has an MFA in Illustration by the School of Visual Arts of New York and still spend some time in his old Brooklyn studio a couple of times per year. Some of his clients include ESPN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Apple. His work has been selected by American Illustration, World Illustration Awards and Illustration Now! Vol.5 — Taschen, 2014.
