Amanda Baeza // *1990, Chile. Amanda grew up in two different hemispheres and currently lives in Lisbon, Portugal, where she obtained a degree in graphic design. She makes zines with her siblings, together they are known as Los Spoquitos. Amanda eats comics for breakfast and plays the baritone saxophone at lunch.
Make sure to also follow her tumblr and read this nice interview on Future Positive.
My creative process is led by my curiosity. I feel the need to explore different techniques for each comic I make. Even though this sounds pretty random, I try to choose techniques that fits with the story I'm working on.
My workplace right now is our floor. I feel comfortable spreading my sketches all over it and sometimes I find nice friends lying over there while I'm drawing. They give me the best tips.
The finished comics by Amanda you can read in š! #14 'Sports'. Try also to keep up with her excellent family zine Mr.Spoqui. But you got to be fast, it is usually sold out very quickly.
Next week 'Behind the Comics' continues with an insight into the colorful world of š! #14 contributor Jeroen Funke.
