Carlos Guirado is an artist affiliated with the Comicup Studios in Barcelona, an agency that provides artwork to several European magazines. He began his career in 1961, drawing for the publishing house Bruguera, among others on the serial 'Félix, el Amigo de los Animales'.
He joined Comicup in 1980 and started out drawing stories for Fix und Foxi and Knax in Germany, until about 1994. As an artist for Rolf Kauka's Fix und Foxi, Guirado followed the style of the Italian artist Massimo Fecchi.
In 1994, he left the studio but returned after a year to draw comics for the Dutch market. He illustrated 'Sjors en Sjimmie' (in SjoSji) and later 'Claire' (in Flair), two series created by Robert van der Kroft, Wilbert Plijnaar and Jan van Die, but he was mainly active as an artist of Disney comics.
He was mainly drawn stories starring 'Bucky Bug', 'Horace Horsecollar' and 'Goofy' for the Dutch Donald Duck weekly. He has also drawn stories with the Duck characters for Egmont in Denmark.
