Antoni Gil-Bao was one of the early Spanish creators for the Danish Disney productions (Gutenberghus and later Egmont). He was among the first artists whose stories got a so-called D-code in stead of the R-code (when Nils Rydahl was the only artist of the Danish production). From 1971 to the early 1990s, Gil-Bao illustrated countless comics with nearly every Disney character. He was associated with the Recreo Studios. In Spain, he was also an artist for Bruguera in the 1960s, drawing 'El Pirata Enmascarado' from scripts by Victor Mora in Héroes en El Capitán Trueno.
