Inks by the singular Oscar Blanco, “El Bardo”, who has drawn and coloured everything from fantasy illustrations for Leyendas de Lacenor and La maldicion de Hilena to the album cover for Torrent. He has been featured in Descubriendo nuevos mundos, Spain is Different, and Imaginarios, but “After Ice” is his favourite project so far. He enjoys Miyazaki films and sleeping under his favourite tree in the woods near his house.
