Oscar González Loyo did his first professional comic art page in 1973, in the Mexican comic Las Aventuras de Capulina, when he was 14 years old. He has cited Walt Disney, Osamu Tezuka and Will Eisner as important influences in his art style.

Over the years, he has worked on titles like Las Aventuras de Cepillín, Las Aventuras de Parchís, Katy la Oruga, El Monje Loco, The Flintstones, Karmatrón y Los Transformables, The New Speed Racer, Tiny Toons, Looney Tunes, The Simpsons Comics and Bart Simpson Comics.[1]

González Loyo also worked once on the covers of the Astroboy, Kimba and Gigantor's American VHS and Laser Disc editions in the late eighties and early nineties.

From 1996 to 2000 he storyboarded animations for the Latin American version of Sesame Street.

In 2000, he earned the Eisner Award at Comic-Con International for his work on Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror, along with Jill Thompson, Steve Steere Jr., Scott Shaw, Sergio Aragonés, and Doug TenNapel.[2]

González Loyo was publishing the webcomic Joe's World, until 2014 as well as a remake of Karmatrón.[3][4][5][6]
