Miguel Angel Camprubí

Illustration, Character Design, Animation

Miguel is an exciting young illustrator and animator hailing from Spain. He graduated with a degree in design and one in illustration from Madrid’s Universidad Complutense and, after completing a working experience in product design and motion graphics in Amsterdam, Miguel realised that illustration was his true calling.

“I think no other creative outlet allows me as much freedom as illustration does,” admits Miguel. “It lets me explore and create as many different things as I want”.

Miguel has developed a quite distinctive world of characters, essential in their traits and reinterpreted through the lens of innocence and humour.

With few simple black lines or fully dressed in his signature bright and bold colour palette, Miguel’s characters channel a strong, cheeky personality, resulting in visually enticing snapshots of a cheerful and uplifting world, energised by a smart use of animation.

“Animating your own illustrations makes a big difference”, says Miguel. “As my artworks are quite simple, I think animation adds one more dimension, time, that makes them much more complex in terms of storytelling. The two languages work perfectly together, although illustration is the base”.

The fine balance between an essential and distinctive trait and the capability of representing surprising and engaging narratives is what makes Miguel’s work so fresh.
