Jorge Longaron was born in Barcelona, and began his career working as a commercial artist. In the 1940s and 1950s he was drawing comic series like 'Arsénico Lupin' in Chispa and 'Chan-Chu-Llo' in Garabatos. He was also contributing to Toray collections like 'El Pequeño Mosquetero', 'Serenata Extra', 'Hazañas Belicas' and 'Hazañas del Oeste'.

By 1969 he was hired by the Chicago Tribune and the New York News Syndicate to create a comic strip. This resulted in the 'Friday Foster' strip, about a young female photographer. 'Friday Foster' was written by Jim Lawrence and ran from 18 January 1970 to 1974. It was adapted into a feature film in 1975. Since then, Longarón has done many cover illustrations for American publications. He is also a fine artist, and specializes in painting the Catalan countryside, but also the American southwest.
