Javier Andrada is from Zamora but currently he lives near the sea, not far from Barcelona.
From a very young age he liked two things very much: painting and books. Since he was a very good student, he spent as many hours as possible drawing and reading. He still did not know that there was a profession that combines these two activities.
Luckyly, he discovered the School of Applied Arts and Artistic Crafts in León, and in 1993 he moved to Barcelona to specialize in Illustration.
Since the 1990s he has worked as an illustrator for children and young people for some of the most exclusive publishers in the country, and although until now, he has only illustrated texts by other authors, he is currently carrying out his own projects as an author-illustrator.
