About

Javier's life has been as nomadic as that of his creative career. At the age of 17, he published his first comic book with a publishing house, which was followed by other successes in the Spanish market. Later he embarked on the adventure of writing, producing three novels of the ‘Eraide’ saga, first published by TimunMas (Planet) and later re-edited and finalized by Ed. Babylon. He did not stop illustrating, doing commissions for Alderac, Imaginary Friends Studio or designing characters and scenes for video games, like in ‘Anima Gate of Memories’ and ‘The Nameless Chronicles’. All while he has lived in Spain, France, Germany and the United States, with frequent long visits to Japan.

He loves travelling, motor, cinema, photography and, above all, trains. Not that it's important, but it's okay to give it a touch of humanity (not only work!) :)

Since 2016 he has been working as editor-in-chief of comics for Babylon Editions.
