Yuly Alejo

Book cover Illustrator

Imaginamálaga Award for Best Newcomer Illustrator 2014.

Self-taught illustrator since the age of six and born in Costa del Sol, Málaga in 1989, Yuly Alejo became fond of art and literature very early. Despite her passion for drawing, she didn’t decide to dedicate herself entirely to illustrating until she was sixteen.

After completing her studies as Senior Technical Illustrator at the Escuela de Arte de San Telmo in Málaga in 2011, she started working as a freelance designing digital illustrations for all kinds of formats such as book covers or clothing. Now she collaborates with online magazines and fanzines occasionally.

Interested in female characters, eroticism and fantasy ever since she was a little girl, her works are clearly influenced by the illustrator Luis Royo. However, her favourite style always has Fran Frazetta, Milo Manara, Arthur Rackham, Simon Bisley, Morris Meredith Williams and Boris Vallejo, among others.

After trying out several techniques (traditional illustration, Indian ink, aquarelle, oil and acrylic) she specialized in digital illustration and book covers for illustrated novels.
