About & Contact /

Barbarana is Bárbara Ana Gómez, a freelance illustrator based in London.

"Welcome to the wonderful world of Barbara Ana Gomez, a Spanish-born illustrator who perfected her skills at London's University of Arts. Her enchanting designs are hand-drawn in ink then retouched and coloured using Photoshop.

Gomez draws inspiration from the likes of Laura Marling, Bon Iver, Death Cab for Cutie and Sigur Rós for her Illustrated Songs collection. She pictures the fantasy world of her favourite lyrics, an obsession that dates back her childhood doodles."
