Life[edit]

Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Diego moved to Santiago de Chile, Chile, in 1991, where he's lived ever since.

Career[edit]

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.

He has also worked on sketch cards for companies like Topps, on properties such as Star Wars and Mars Attacks.

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 DC Thomson, including promotional comics for the Lego City brand, and illustrations for WWE Kids Magazine.

During 2013, he worked for Tinkle Magazine in India. Apart from the comics aforementioned comics projects, he continues to expand into other fields of illustration while working mainly for publishers in the UK.

Additional work Jourdan has recently done for Uruguay includes the cover of the children's science fiction graphic novel Crononautas,[5][6] for GAS Comics, the same small print publisher he did the cover of GAS3K.1 (2011) for.

Outside comics, he is working as an illustrator for the Argentinian edition of Rolling Stone magazine. In his free time, Diego is now pursuing his interest in art printmaking.[7][8]
