Kim Amate

Kim Amate was born in 1974 in a town near Barcelona. He studied graphic design and painting and later Arts and illustration. He worked as a prepress technician up until 2009 when he became a freelance illustrator, designer and layout artist, mainly for Children’s publications. He likes drawing his characters taking into account their backgrounds and never leaving out details which he thinks are important to understand them. He uses both traditional and digital techniques to reach his end. His references are in painting, cinema and music when he has to build up an scenery or set the plot in a far-away time, but the best technique, according to him, is to delve into the book. His favourite colours are dark sienna, Prussian blue and yellow ochre.
