Humorous artist José Castillo was born in the old Spanish protectorate of Morocco in 1922; then he moved to Valencia. He primarily worked for publishing house Valenciana, which he did for decades since its beginning in the 1940s. The abundant comics and gag cartoons he did for the publisher mainly appeared in Jaimito, Selecciones de Jaimito and Pumby. For Jaimito Castillo created 'El Paracaidista Pérez' in 1957 and 'Johnny Culata' in 1962, among other series. For Pumby he created series like 'Biela' and 'Los Tres Mosquiteros y Medio' in the 1960s. He also worked for publishers other than Valenciana such as Maga and for newspapers like Arriba and Faro de Vigo.
