🏆 2021 BIBA® Children’s Illustration Winner!
Hi! I am Javi. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1985, and I love to draw! I also love other things, like falling asleep in the train, but that’s not relevant here. Ever since I was a kid I knew that the only thing I could do for the rest of my live is drawing, so that’s what I do! I studied fine arts for a long long time, and just before i got my MFA a series of circumstances led me to abandon my thesis and get into freelance illustration.
I drew and drew and drew, and when I lifted my head from the page I saw that somehow I ended up being partner in an education software company.
That was fun for a while, but I wasn’t drawing enough, so I went back to that.
