Pablo Auladell

Born in Alicante in 1972, Pablo Auladell always knew that he wanted to be a professional illustrator and he channelled all his efforts into it, although some information from his biography seems to contradict this determination, because he graduated in English Philology from the University of Alicante. But, as the poet said, “In my story, there are some things I´d rather not recall.”

In 1996, he came into contact with the writers’ collective La Taberna del Ñú Azul, formed by the scriptwriter Pedro F. Navarro and the artists Miguel Ángel Díez and Miguel Ángel Bejerano. With the members of this collective he produced his first short comic strips for fanzines.

In 2000, the National Award of Comic Injuve provided the necessary backing for him to turn professional. The editor of De Ponent, Francisco Camarasa offered him the possibility of editing his first comic album, El camino del titiritero, which earned him a nomination for the Novel Author Award in the Barcelona Comic´s Fair in 2002.

In 2005, he was awarded the second prize for the Mejores Ilustraciones de Libros Infantiles y Juveniles for the book Pieter, Peter y Peer y otros cuentos de Andersen. In the same way he participated in the exhibition Ilustrísimos which the Ministry of Culture presented in the Bologna Fair and was honoured with the Premio al Autor Revelación in the Saló del Comic de Barcelona for his work La Torre Blanca (which was also nominated in the categories of Best Work and Best Drawing).

He has illustrated more than twenty books, novels and comics and his works have been exhibited in galleries and fairs in Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Bologna and Geneva. He has also given lectures in Spain and Italy.

At present he is working in Alicante as a freelance illustrator for Spanish and foreign publishers and is president of the APIV (Professional Association of Illustrators from Valencia).
