Background

Diego Jourdan Pereira (usually credited as Diego Jourdan, sometimes as Diego J. Pereira) is a Uruguayan comic book artist and illustrator, residing in Santiago de Chile, Chile, and specializing in licensed properties.

Life

Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Diego moved to Santiago de Chile, Chile, in 1991, where he's lived ever since.

Career

He studied Graphic Design in Chile (Universidad del Pacifico) and Computer Typesetting and Design in the USA (NYC's F.I.T.), and has worked as an illustrator/cartoonist for over twelve years, mainly for US customers; including Simon & Schuster, IDW Publishing, Nickelodeon, Mirage Studios, Titan Magazines, and Worthwhile Books; MAD Magazine (Australia), among many others.

Among the properties and characters Diego has worked on are: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe, Transformers Animated, Astro Boy, Digger & Friends, Ghostbusters, Smurfs, and Disney/Pixar characters.

After working on short lived revamped runs of Ivy the Terrible in The Beano (2010) and Snooty & Scamp (Lord & Lauser) in Wendy (2011), Diego now finds himself involved in other projects for publisher D.C. Thomson & Co., including promotional comics for the Lego City brand, and illustrations for WWE Kids Magazine.

In his free time, Diego is now pursuing his interest in art printmaking[1][2], taking part in exhibitions in Belgium's Sint Niklaas Museum[3] and Japan's Tama Art University[4]. During 2015, Diego took part in Japan's MI Lab Residency program[5], designed to teach "mokuhanga" (Japanese water-based woodcut printmaking technique) to foreign artists.

Four of Diego's biblical woodcut prints were also included in the book "Revealed: A Storybook Bible for Grown-ups"[6], alongside works by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Franz Marc, and Eric Gill among many others.

As of 2016, he is currently illustrating The Sunday Post's Fun Section comic-strips[7] (which include Oor Wullie, The Broons, and Wee Harry), filling in for regular artist Peter Davidson when the occasion demands it.

Awards and Recognitions

In January 2009, he was accepted as a regular member of the prestigious National Cartoonists Society.

In 2011, his short comic Verdes, with Argentinian writer Javier Hildebrandt, won a contest in the Italian magazine MONO, and will be published in issue 10 of said magazine.
