Life and career
Originally from Montevideo, Puñales settled in Spain to pursue a career in illustration and animation. After working as a waiter for a couple of years, he studied at the Joso School for Comics and Visual Arts in Barcelona from 2010 to 2014. There, he took part in a course in Disney art organized by the Danish publishing house Egmont Creative, with art director Fernando Guëll and veterans Ulrich Schröder and Daan Jippes as supervisors. By 2016 Martin was selected to draw comic stories for Egmont's Disney production division. The course brought forth a new wave of freelance Spanish Disney artists, which also included Diego Bernardo Álvarez, Cynthia Campanario Pineda, Joan Crexells Aparicio, Xavi Martin Sancho and Lourdes Rueda Sala. Puñales' first story was published in Scandinavia in November 2016. He draws both short and longer stories with 'Donald Duck' and his family members.
