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.
