José Pereira Torrejón was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, where he spent his childhood years. In late 1979 he moved with his family to The Netherlands where he has lived ever since. Curious by nature, he has learnt the ins and outs of cartoon-and comics design and illustration without any formal training. His work shows a huge variation in both style and content, ranging from the humorous 'Lenard & Gilbert' series to the mysterious 'Rain's Freakshow' series. His comics were published in several international small press magazines as well as online.
