Raisa Álava — illustrator-drawer.

Name and Occupation.

Raisa Álava, illustrator-drawer.

Artwork or piece with which you feel most satisfied or that you believe best represents you.

I think there are many, I see myself more represented when I draw for myself or when they let me do it with total freedom. I try to give everything that comes to me care and a lot of attention.

Your first work.

A huge drawing that was commissioned from me for the farewell of a man who was retiring. Doing it was an ordeal, when I think about it I get goosebumps.

Recommend us a book, a movie and a song.

Book: My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh
Movie: Anatomy of a Fall
Song: Maite, Nauzu Zeharkatu by Verde Prato and Bronquio
