I am Agurtzane Abajo, a freelance illustrator from the north of Spain. I love the color yellow, drink coffee with milk and lots of foam and adore cats. And I do not like driving or soft drinks very much.

I studied Graphic Design, because although I loved drawing, I didn’t know all the possibilites with illustrations.

After working in several publicity companies as a graphic designer, an experience that provided me with the skill to focus on the final result of images for better communication, I focused on my passion – illustration.

Since then, I have illustrated posters, brochures, and children books for publishers such as Yoyo Books, Micuento, Miles Kelly, and Ibaizabal.

I am convinced this work is a way to continue learning. It is always growing, the same as I am.

When I am not drawing, I love spending time with my family, my 3 daughters and my cat called Muxu.

I am proudly represented worldwide by Lemonade Illustration Agency.


Why “Saludos al pollo”?

One day, when I was living in another city with my coworker, I went to buy a cushion. I found the chicken, it was not a cushion, but it was soft and it was also love at first sight. 

New job opportunities appeared, and my partner and I returned to our hometowns. It was a sad goodbye.  

Since then, when we wrote messages or emails, she always sent me "Saludos al pollo" (Greetings to the chicken).

If you would like to work with me,

just drop me a line:
