Joan Cornellà Vázquez was born in Barcelona, Spain on 11 January 1981. Having graduated in fine arts, he has collaborated for numerous publications, such as La cultura del Duodeno, El Periódico, Ara and has illustrated for The New York Times.

In 2009 he won the third edition of the Josep Coll Prize with his album Abulio, published in the next year by Glénat. Since 2010, he has provided cartoons for the Spanish magazine El Jueves.

In 2012, Fracasa Mejor, a selection of Cornellà’s black-and-white cartoons made from 2010 to 2012, was published. Most of the material was previously unpublished, although it also contains material published in El Jueves and various other fanzines.

In 2013, a third album of his, Mox Nox, was published via Bang Ediciones.

Cornellà collaborated with visual designer Stefania Lusini in 2016 as an illustrator for the cover of Wilco’s tenth studio album, Schmilco.

Have you ever seen something disturbing, but couldn’t take your eyes off of it and weren’t quite sure why are you appealed by it? Well, that happens to the majority of people when they see Joan Cornellà‘s dark-humored comics for the first time.
