About Gabriela Palomo

I was born in 1992 in El Salvador, a tiny country in Central America. In my childhood I liked to read a lot of fantasy literature and comic books like Harry Potter or Elfquest which fed my imagination and inspired me to create my own characters and stories. Through school life I found a lot of support in family, friends and teachers to never stop drawing and using my abilities in school work. In my country we didn’t have a lot of options for degrees, and studying abroad was too expensive for my family so I studied the closest career to illustration; Graphic Design. But I also continued studying about Illustration and developing my abilities with help of the internet and particular classes given by a local group of illustrators. El Salvador is a small country but it’s filled with so many talented people and the community of artists and creative people is very supportive, so we all stay inspired by one another and we all keep growing together. Right now I’m doing my graduation thesis and working as a part time animator, while I continue to develop my personal brand and doing freelance jobs, but I also want to continue studying and get a master’s degree in animation
