Illustrator and 3D Modeler

Román García is not only an illustrator but also a biologist, and since 2008, he has been working above all on scientific and informative illustration projects. His drawings have been published in acclaimed magazines including National Geographic and Quo Magazine. He also collaborates with the Real Jardín Botánico in Madrid to produce illustrations for the CSIC's Flora Iberica project.

His work consists of creating images of things that we cannot see because they belong to a past time, the world of imagination, or simply because they are not perceptible to the human eye. To achieve this, he uses digital illustration as the foundation for his work and combines it with traditional techniques, 3D modeling, and illustrative retouching.
