SHORT BIO

Jaume Marco born in Grau de Gandia, (Valencia, Spain), 1973.

Studied industrial and graphic design and illustration at the School of Arts and Crafts in Alcoi, Alicante.

Jaume is responsible for graphic exhibitions and catalogs of Artium, Museum of Contemporary Art in Vitoria; the design and layout of the magazine Concreta art, creative and art direction for various projects of European Commision, CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) or the art direction and graphic design of FEEC.

He is currently based in Valencia and works as a designer at Ió Lab, while continuing to develop his work as an illustrator.

Jaume balances the traditional with the digital in her process. His pencil and pen sit side by side with her Wacom tablet, Mac and Photoshop. He loves the physical processes of colour mixing and mark making if they’re right for the project. These results then get scanned and imported into Photoshop to create a final image.

Jaume’s colourful, folksy images often feature a host of creatures and characters – some real, some imaginary. Bears knit forests of trees and persons dance around whales or flamingos. He varies his style quite broadly, sometimes limiting her colour palette with stronger graphical forms, and at other times flooding the illustration with colour, detail and unusual patterns.

In this moment has published two illustrated books: Et dans ta tête à toi? (2011) Editorial Alice jeunesse, and El viatge d’en Biel pèl de fletxa (2015) Editorial Comanegra.

Jaume with his Illustrated stories teaches us that the journey is the best way to learn and to learn is the best way to travel.

He has given several lectures at universities of design and is the winner of the V Edition of the Award Opticks Plumier Illustrated Story
