Carles was born on 1973 in Bescanó, a little village in Catalonia, Spain. As a child, he was a very curious boy and often glued to “his treasure”, a box of color pencils. He used to spend countless hours scribbling on papers. On one occasion, his creative mind inspired him to paint the family dining room which made his parents quite furious. Some years later, he studied at Olot’s Art School and graduated in 1997 with a degree in Graphic Design. He immediately began his career as an illustrator for educational projects, magazines, and children’s books. He has been very busy ever since and currently lives in Barcelona where he continues to fill pages with color.|
