Marianna Madriz draws curious characters inspired by magical realism

Marianna Madriz is originally from Venezuela. Like many, she spent most of her time there drawing... but it wasn't until she moved to the UK a few years ago that she saw the opportunity to transform this longtime hobby into a career. She's inspired by films, soundtracks and great character design - and fascinated by people, stories and magical realism.

She's currently trying to merge these elements together to create something charming and fun, whether it's a single image, a narrative or a short animation. You can discover more of her interesting work at
