Elena Hormiga

About me and my work

I’m Elena Hormiga, a graphic designer and illustrator based in Madrid, Spain. “Hormigas” (ants in english) are insects with six legs attached to their thorax. As you know, they use their legs to climb all surfaces and make many different things, like drawing, painting, paper cuts, picture books… (at least this is my case!)
