About me

My name is Nacho Diaz and I'm an illustrator from Spain. Art has always been a really important part of my life, as I kid, I always dreamed to be a professional illustrator, so to be able to do it as my job is like a dream come true. 

Since the first time I published my work online, I've been lucky enough to see my work shared continuously on social media, letting me reach many people that follow my work today. This following gives me an invaluable freedom as an artist that I use to focus on little ideas I like, trying to see the world around us in a different way.

Villains Need Love

Pop culture characters are always really fun to work with, everyone knows them very well, so it's extremely satisfying to find a clever idea that let us see them in a different light.

Wild things need love too!
Wild things need love too!

Villains are usually the most interesting characters. Most of the time they are the way they are because they had a hard time in the past, so I thought... Would they be different with some love in their lives? Would they still be these grumpy guys we love? That's how Villains Need Love started.

We love Bender, but he hates humans!
We love Bender, but he hates humans!

Once I started re-imagining them, I couldn't stop drawing grumpy villains being loved by their antagonists. I never thought on how many charismatic villains are out there, I've drawn over 50 so far! It ended up being a passion project with what I think is a beautiful message.

In the process, I realized that while some of the villains are bad for the sake of being bad, others just had a really hard time in the past or were in the wrong place at the wrong time, so a little love might actually fix some of them!
