Hello there!. My name is Mario Jodra. I am an illustrator, painter, designer and poet born in Zamora (Spain). Now I live in Madrid, the city where I grew up, after living in cities such as London, Toronto and Vancouver.
I am an artist currently specialized in a fi gurative and realistic style. I use traditional media such as pencil and charcoal, which I combine with digital art techniques. I am an illustrator who likes the use of intense color, but I am also passionate about black and white. I really enjoy playing with all the textures and shading provided by pencil and charcoal, and create dark atmospheres out of it.
I have worked as a designer for studios and agencies and now as a freelance illustrator for editorial and publishing clients while I participate in print and book fairs and exhibitions, and working on artist’s book publishing projects that include fi elds such as visual arts, comic book and poetry. My art has been exhibited in different countries and cities (Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, Milan, etc.) in various individual and collective exhibitions and art fairs. I am currently working at my studio in Madrid.
