Lele Saa

Hello I’m Lele, originally from northwest Spain and currently based in the UK.

Before studying the MA in Children’s Book Illustration in Cambridge School of Art I was a successful but unsatisfied advertising art director. Now, I consider myself a joyous author, illustrator and character designer.  I am also a Pictoplasma Academy 2017 Alumni.

I’m fascinated with developing characters and creating their worlds. Graphic design, printmaking, sculpture and observational drawing inform my visual language. However, my personal life and everyday experiences feed my narratives. I use storytelling to explore contemporary issues that concern me but also as a therapy for both, my childhood and adulthood traumas.
