Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo is an illustrator working out of Granada, Spain. Along with motion graphics, web design, and logos, he is also an amazing illustrator with a very unique style. It look as though his works are primarily created with Illustrator, and then textures and various brush work are added to the pieces to give them a more unique feel and depth. Some of the works could very easily translate into traditional watercolor portraits, provided the artist used some stencils in the initial setup. I especially like the works based on horror movie icons, with the intense color palettes he uses the juxtaposition of horror and color is amazing.
