Hi! I'm Mauricio Abril.

I'm a visual storyteller working in the fields of Children's Publishing, Theme Parks, Illustration & Film.

As an author-illustrator I've written and illustrated two well-received animatic short films, self-published my first children's book, and am currently working on my first illustrated YA novel.

When I'm not writing or drawing, you can probably find me messing around on the guitar or looking for a new favorite pizza spot.


The focus of my work is on illustrating character-centric moments that tell a story with cinematic color and lighting.
