Continuing my posts about fun, European illustrators is a guy named Puño who lives and works in Madrid. Puño was born in 1978, and makes his living “drawing for books, for press, and for publicity.” He also enjoys the city, cities in general, and travels a lot, but that doesn’t help him pay the bills.

I like Puño because of his fun, brush and ink style. All of his frawings have an amazing amount of depth and life to them and really make me smile. I put my favorite image of his up top, I just love that the Fantastic Four are fighting some drugged out giant Mickey Mouse, I mean, who wouldn’t? The other image is an illustration he did as a personal project, but wouldn’t that be awesome to see as an advertisement for a library? I know if I were a little kid (or the age I am now) that it would get me excited to see what’s going on inside!
