Hi! I'm María Rod

I’m a freelance illustrator, designer, and teacher.

I help brands to spread their message with my illustrations, but I also help creatives to achieve a career in art by teaching all I´ve learned



I illustrate for books, magazines, social media, brands… or anything that needs some sparkle. My main projects are for children and young adult publications, but I adapt to different targets and all kinds of media.


This is one of the things I love the most because it allows me to set free my creativity and stay close to my fine arts side. I paint murals on any surface, at any size, and for all spaces, you just need a blank wall and I do the rest.
I can travel anywhere on the globe!


Almost all the illustrations you find on my website and social media are available for licensing, but if you wanna see a more specific catalog just send me a message and I’ll send you a pdf with a lot of designs and patterns ready to brighten up your brand.


I teach in-person illustration, drawing, and painting classes, just go to section «classes» to find when and where are the next workshops. I’m also working with Skillshare team to film some online courses, coming soon!

Featured projects


Take a look at my Etsy, there you’ll find my illustrations and designs in a lot of products such as prints, calendars, planners…

If you want a print from some illustration and you don’t find it here just send me a message and I can print it just for you!
