Edition Biografiktion (Portrait of Till Hafenbrak, Paul Paetzel and Ana herself)

One of my all-time favorite artists is Fernando Botero. Possibly an unorthodox choice, but there’s something I really love about viewing the usual cast of characters re-imagined in a pleasantly-plump form. In a similar (though more subtle) way, I’m incredibly attracted to Ana Albero’s figures. Whether sweet or sassy, animal or human, her subjects share a pleasant roundness and a decisive lack of chin.

Originally from Spain, Ana is a freelance illustrator—and maker of comics—based in Berlin. She’s worked for a variety of editorial clients, such as the New York Times, and has appeared in several comics compilations and illustration magazines (including one of my favorites, Nobrow).
