Eva Cabrera

Jalisco, México

Vegan Witch & Comicbook Artist, Will Eisner and GLAAD Award nominee, Eva Cabrera is the co-founder of Mexican studio BoudikaComics. She was born in Veracruz, Mexico, but most of the time she likes to travel and see other places. She is a lover of animals, books, and nature. In her free time she likes to watch shows, movies, and play video games.

Since she was little, she has been fascinated by telling stories through drawing. Little by little, she has developed her work as a female comics artist, and it’s become very important for her to be a representative of the creative women in Mexico.

She drew the Betty & Veronica series: Archie Comics’ Vixens, Black Mask Studio’s “Kim&Kim,” and has worked with publishers such as One Press, ComiXology Originals, etc. She has done covers for BOOM Studios’ Adventure Time comics.

What was your favorite book as a child?

Alice in Wonderland. I loved the idea of traveling to a crazy and psychedelic world. “The Three Musketeers” is a book that I have grown up with and I love the adventures of D’Artagnan and his friends.

Who or what inspires you the most, and why?

In general, what inspires me is people who are striving to achieve their dreams and who emanate a very positive energy in the world. Discover new places, travel, my friends, Everything that refers to ART, books, and many things. 🙂

Art Process:

I always start with a sketch on paper. I like to write many ideas and sketch whatever comes to mind. Later I pick the ideas that seem most functional and start experimenting, reworking them on the computer.

When I work for publishers, I have to be faster, so I’ve started to work primarily digitally, but if I have time, I make ideas with watercolor or ink.

My priority is to deliver on the established dates, but I never neglect quality. I still feel that I have a lot to learn. That is the cool thing about my work: even with all the years that I have been a comic artist, I continue to learn and will never stop learning.

Published books:

  • Betty and Veronica: VIXENS (Archie Comics, 2016 – Present)
