Welcome To My Creative Corner
My name is Mayda Madrid, your friendly caffeinated artist. I create stylized illustrations for publishing and licensing, but mostly I draw
figurative sketches about coffee 😂
See some of them here: @maydamadrid
I like to refer to myself as a professional doodler. I enjoy creating art pieces that speak to me, so I often sketch my feelings. I love the simplicity which comes from drawing imperfect loose shapes and lines that lead me to stories---I love a good story.
I live in the state of Florida, so nature is a big inspiration for me, but not in the way you might think. Nature fuels me and provides a great source of energy—spiritual energy! As well as coffee. Let's not forget the coffee!
My art style is both cartoon-ish and figurative. I sketch child-like illustrations. These are girls and boys who are cheerful, curious and go on magical adventures! They inspire curiosity and imagination. I love using soft colors on these illustrations, though sometimes darker shades are used.
My figurative/lifestyle women are sketched with elegance and edge. I love sketching women who are bold, intellectual, confident, unapologetic and independent. Women who inspire individuality, uniqueness and voice in their own way.
Most of my figurative sketches are characters I've concocted in my mind. Others are sketches of real women who have inspired me in my life, such as my mother, sisters, friends and mentors.
With these illustrations I often use a monochrome-ish color palettes and a splash of color. I use color variances such as tints, tones, and shades to create a bit of color variation.
