Joan García Junceda i Supervia, also known as simply Junceda, was one of the most important Catalan caricaturists of the first half of the 20th century. Coming from an Asturian family, he contributed to many of the period's magazines, such as ¡Cu-Cut!, Papitu, Picarol and, most notably, En Patufet.

In 1910, he illustrated 'Les Extraordinàries Aventures d'en Massagran' by Josep M. Folch i Torres, the first novel in collection Biblioteca Patufet . He also illustrated several children's books. Junceda passed away in Blanes in 1948. His style has inspired the following generation of Spanish illustrators, including Batllori Joffré and Serra Massana.
