Arantza Sestayo was born in San Sebastián, Basque Country, Spain.
Her artistic process is self-taught and she begins to be formed professionally through portraiture, and in ceramic design and in the production of cartoons in the Camelot studios of Castellón.
Her journey in the illustration begins with publications such as Rooie Oortjes of erotic and humorous comics, the Swedish children's magazine Psago Prinsessan, and the American publishing house S.Q.P.
In Spain publishes with Norma Comics "Wicked Kisses" and participates in the book "Vampires".
Schmidt, Bioworld, or Heavy Metal bring merchandising products to the market with some of her works.
The municipality of Castellón commissioned an illustration for a façade of the Ateneo Assembly Hall, and published Duende, as a compilation of her work.
She makes different exhibitions at events related to comics and movies, such as Expomanga or Mulafest in Madrid, Ficomic in Barcelona, Cavacon in Italy or the Terror Film Festival of San Sebastián.
Currently some of her works have been covers for Penguin Random House, and she has participated in the special edition "Game of Thrones 20th anniversary" by HarperCollins Publisher.

I'm Accepting Commissions!
At this moment I only accept commissions about magic themes of fantasy, elves, fairies, mythology or classic tales in general, of the children's world, but from a realistic approach.
