Murcia-born Ana Galvañ is an illustrator and comic book artist, and her work, unsettling in the best kind of way, feels like the surrealist scenes from a sci-fi comic book, with its futuristic elements and a pink-purple haze. Ana likes to create imaginary worlds where any event–no matter how surreal–is possible, but each one is based on her surroundings in the real world. As a result, the surprises that come about in the absurd scenarios have more of an impact. In 2016, she received a Gráffica award for her work, and in 2020 she was nominated for an Ignatz award. She has recently published Tarde en McBurger's, a fantasy story for preteens edited by Apa Apa comics. Her work has been featured in El País, The Guardian, The Washington Post, the New Yorker, the New York Times and Berlinger.
