Overview

«Aún tenía cuerpo de niña cuando llegó hasta mí. Era de escasa estatura. Una mujer, apenas mujer, pero en sus iris anidaba una fuerza que sólo habita en las almas de quienes tienen en su poder la capacidad de cambiar a las personas con las se cruzan. Su voz era dulce, como el fruto de la palmera, pero atemperada. Tenía un matiz extraño de gravedad contenida. Su juventud sólo potenciaba su firme carácter.

Overview

«Aún tenía cuerpo de niña cuando llegó hasta mí. Era de escasa estatura. Una mujer, apenas mujer, pero en sus iris anidaba una fuerza que sólo habita en las almas de quienes tienen en su poder la capacidad de cambiar a las personas con las se cruzan. Su voz era dulce, como el fruto de la palmera, pero atemperada. Tenía un matiz extraño de gravedad contenida. Su juventud sólo potenciaba su firme carácter. Su aparente fragilidad sólo daba motivos para verla aún más mujer. Tenía una capacidad para apasionarse que sólo rivalizaba con la convicción de su alma. Un punto irresistible que equilibraba su evidente juventud con una potencia desconocida e improbable para sus años. Apenas la tuve delante supe que me hallaba ante una mujer de las que se hace difícil olvidar. Una mujer que heriría, que se clavaría hondo.

Una mujer por la que un hombre mataría y se dejaría morir sin dudarlo.
Ambas cosas sucedieron.

Ésta es su historia».

Lazos es el bloque inicial de esta serie, nuevo proyecto en el que se embarcan el escritor Vilches y el ilustrador Charro, cambiando radicalmente de género y temática para mostrarnos una historia emotiva y romántica no exenta de acción, traición y política. Ambientada en una Europa Medieval ficticia, Irene es una joven que hereda unas tierras muy lejos del reino castellano en un delicado momento de tensión política. Allí, sola, arropada por un puñado de hombres fieles a su apellido tendrá que comenzar una nueva vida que estará marcada por las relaciones y alianzas que haga en el camino.
Irene es una de esas mujeres capaces de cambiar el rumbo de una vida y su destino. Descúbrela en esta serie.

Meet the Author

I was born in Leon (1980) and moved to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria when I was but months old. My father, who had been a painter in his youth, passed on his enthusiasm for art to me. My brother and me shared our hobby and spent hours painting influenced by fantastic art and American comics.

After collaborating in an animated short film in 2003, I started publishing illustrations for role-playing games. From then on, I combine my career in architecture with the work as a freelance illustrator.

In 2006, I moved to Madrid where I work as a creative architect in the well-known Spanish studio A-cero while I continue with my career as an illustrator. In the summer 2010, I decide to concentrate on illustration, starting new projects and accepting more orders.

During these last years I have published hundreds of illustrations in different media, such as novel covers, mobile games, role-playing games and miniatures, sets of cards, magazines, etc. Lately, I am also in charge of drawing and colouring the comic of the popular game Blood and Glory: Legend, embarking, thus, upon graphic narrative, too. Many have entrusted him with the images of their products, his clients include Fantasy Flight Games, Dream Pod 9, Glu Mobile Inc., Cryptozoic, Mongoose Publishing, Hero Games, Team Jabberwocky, Crafty Games, Moon Design Publications, Holocubierta, Mundos Épicos and Editorial Sombra among others. In 2011, the prestigious Ballistic Publishing selects two of my works among those of world-class illustrators for EXOTIQUE 7 and two of my pictures became part of the 2012 S-Artbook (Spanish Art Compilation), which compiles the best national illustrations.

My association with the writer Jesús B. Vilches in 2010 was a turning point in my career as it led from work made to order to creative initiative. Our first common venture was “Älwen Soul&Sword”, an illustrated story based on the characters of the saga Flor de Jade, written by Jesús B. Vilches. This project will go on sale in Spanish and English in the main digital platforms. It strays from the usual layout of this kind of books, proposing a different narrative rhythm and a vast range of extra contents among which you can find sketches and illustration processes. Following this project Vilches&Charro consolidated our alliance and took their partnership beyond the illustrated book. We have now published three of the five novels of the saga La Flor de Jade and a new series of novels Irene available in Amazon. We have also started an illustrated adventure narrative online, where readers determine the course of events called La Flor de Jade: Choose your destiny. After“Ällwen Soul&Sword”, our couple of independent authors, Vilches &Charro, promises (or threatens –you choose-) to provide their readers and audience a catalogue full of products which will surelyredefine the traditional link between illustrators and writers.
